Then you can hit the target with your eyes closed."</b></i> Get ready for major league fun! A crew of young losers becomes a winning baseball team under the tutelage of one determined coach, a police officer. The list of quirks these kids exhibit far exceeds their home runs, and includes everything from compulsive nose picking and farting to excessive beauty. But when they band together to win the championship, with the help of the unique talents of a new teammate, nothing is going to get in their way. Although I wasn't even born nine years after its 1978 release at least I may be one of the few younger people who knows this movie while most of its target viewers were old enough to remember this on online blogs. I liked <i>The Bad News Bears</i> a lot and saw it at least twice, so when a similarly made movie was seen as an unofficial sequel and remake there's always a reason to make comparisons between the two. Both features use classical music in their soundtracks and focus on baseball teams full of misfits and losers with little playing talent, although I felt that they were a little less brash than the Bears. I really don't know anyone in the cast so if anyone of them made any good movies after this one they most likely disappeared into obscurity years later and never mentioned again even today. <a href="http://s955.photobucket.com/albums/ae34/radboviemiot/Movie%20Posters/DVD%20Covers/?action=view¤t=mtt.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i955.photobucket.com/albums/ae34/radboviemiot/Movie%20Posters/DVD%20Covers/mtt.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> Even with its availability on DVD, <i>Here Come The Tigers</i> may not have its place as one of the best known sports movies but it's still a great little seen title that scores. As a title released back in the late '70s but forgotten nowadays anyone who was around at that time might rediscover this, and for anyone who has never seen it they it would be worth checking out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member This is not an unofficial sequel to The Bad News Bears, it is a direct rip-off of it, but lacking much of the charm of that film. Too silly, but it does have a few good moments, just not enough of them. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
