Bad Parents is a comedic movie from 2012 that follows a group of parents as they navigate the competitive world of youth sports. The film stars Janeane Garofalo, Christopher Titus, and Michael Boatman. The story revolves around a group of parents whose children all play on the same Little League baseball team. The parents are all extremely competitive and take their children's success very seriously. They constantly push their kids to be the best, often to the point of exhaustion and burnout.

The film portrays the parents as being completely obsessed with victory, regardless of the toll it may take on their children's mental and physical health. They hire expensive coaches, fight with the umpires, and yell at their kids from the sidelines.

As the season progresses, the parents become increasingly paranoid and desperate to win. They start spying on other teams, stealing their signals, and trying to recruit players from opposing teams. The tension between the parents and their children becomes palpable, as the kids struggle to keep up with the demands of their parents.

The film also highlights the relationships between the parents themselves. There is a great deal of backstabbing, gossip, and infighting, as different parents try to outdo each other in the quest for victory. The social dynamics of the group are explored in depth, as the parents each try to establish their own dominance within the group.

The humor in the film centers around satire and absurdity. The parents are portrayed as caricatures of the worst kind of Little League parents, and their behavior is exaggerated for comedic effect. The dialogue is snappy and fast-paced, with plenty of witty one-liners and clever jokes.

Overall, Bad Parents is an entertaining and thought-provoking film that explores the challenges of modern parenting in a competitive world.
