Washed up, but can he lead a band of misfits to victory?

Whilst braving a seemingly endless gauntlet of movie trailers, I noticed Will Ferrell's newest movie, Kicking & Screaming, looks like a soccer version of The Bad News Bears. (Or, um, The Mighty Ducks, which was the hockey version of TBNB, if you don't remember TBNB.)

Shortly after the trailer for Ferrell's film was the trailer for the next Martin Lawrence film, Rebound, which in all appearances seems to be a basketball version of The Bad News Bears--washed up coach demoted to coaching a gang of motley kids...

And, today I realized Richard Linklater has directed a new version of--say it isn't so--The Bad News Bears that's scheduled for release July 22.

It's times like this I really miss David's Spade's SNL movie reviews.
