Coach Roy once was college basketball's top mastermind. But lately his attentions have been on his next endorsements, not on his next game. What¹s more, Roy's temper has run amuck, leading to his being banned from college ball until he can demonstrate compliance--in other words, not explode every time he walks onto the court. Roy waits and waits; for a suitable coaching offer, but he receives only one: the Mount Vernon Junior High School Smelters basketball squad. Roy reluctantly accepts the offer, hoping that a few weeks at the school will prove his good intentions and restore him to his high-living ways as a celebrated college coach. But when old school meets middle school, Coach Roy doesn't know what hit him. It's not until Roy decides to teach his young charges some new concepts--like passing, rebounding, dribbling, and scoring--that the Smelters begin to find success and Roy finds something long thought lost: his love of the game.

In an issue of the school newspaper the headline reads "Smelters Win Again! Move into 6th Place" but if you actually read the article it talks about them having another loss. See more »

Martin Lawrence definitely brought the laughs in this movie. There were other people that were funny but mainly Martin Lawrence was. This movie is all about basketball and barely anything else. Roy McCormick (Martin Lawrence) gets fired from coaching college basketball because of his maniacal temper tantrums. Now he has to coach 13 year old kids in a middle school. At first, it was bad for Roy but then he became more patient and better to the kids. It's difficult to explain why I liked this movie but it was just funny and I really was into it for some reason. Movie directed by Steve Carr.
