Neither Little League baseball nor minor league hockey appreciated the way they were portrayed in these raucous, politically incorrect comedies, but audiences rightly adore them. Director Michael Ritchie's merciless lampoon of youth sports in "Bad News Bears" (PG-13, ★★★★) ranks alongside his political satire "The Candidate" as a classic of 1970s antiestablishment ridicule. Walter Matthau plays a broken-down, alcoholic minor league ex-pitcher brought in to coach a team of losers, juvenile delinquents and misfits. "Slap Shot" (R, ★★★★) is as funny the 693rd time as the first. Paul Newman is hilariously profane as the player-manager leading his grimy team through what is likely their farewell season.
