Thornton says bad language overrated

LONDON, July 13 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Billy Bob Thornton says the rough language in his upcoming "The Bad News Bears" is nothing kids haven't heard before.

"The Bad News Bears" is a remake of the 1976 Tatum O'Neal film that features Thornton in the baseball coach role made famous by Walter Matthau.

"If you look at the television, 'South Park' is available for everybody to watch, and the language in 'South Park' is way worse than what's in 'Bad News Bears,'" Thornton told BBC Radio 1. "But I think because television is free, it's on so you people don't question it so much.

"But you see kids out places, and if you hear a kid saying 'come here you little (expletive), nobody thinks anything about it, but when you hear it in a movie, it's a big deal."
