PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – This week’s DVD releases seem up-front on a couple of subjects.

Bad News Bears, the 2005 version starring Billy Bob Thornton (photo) and Greg Kinnear, is not as raunchy or as radical as the 1976 original, but it’s still an attractive comedy about a baseball team of lovable pint-size losers and their grouchy manager.

Anne Heche and John C. Reilly are featured is the disarmingly sweet and silly Cedar Rapids.
