Cuba Gooding Jr.,
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 »

Lite and pleasant Upbeat, nice family entertainment . Predictable
The story has been done many times before, it is very predictable. Martin Lawrence adds a lot of funny moments, actually the whole movie is a great comedy. It is also a mood lifter, great for kids, many lessons about winning and loosing. Any one can be a winner, is one lesson. It is also a great lesson in leadership for adults, it is the leader who make superstars out of average individuals. How many famous people today are only successful because of their manager or their coach? may be people should leave a bad leader and move on. Of course, the main character self destructs because of arrogance, he hits rock bottom, but then he was able to go back to what made him successful the first place and he was able to enjoy the challenge again and enjoy life: no luck here, just a formula. Yes I liked this movie despite the mediocre acting and the predictable story, I thought a lot of people will too because they will be able to relate to one or more of its characters
