ON DISC
A comedy that spoofs the inspirational sports movies, The Comebacks tells the story of an out-of-luck coach, Lambeau Fields, who takes a rag-tag bunch of college misfits and drives them towards the football championships.

Storyline

Lambeau Fields lives a middle-class lifestyle in America along with his wife, Barb, and a gorgeous daughter, Michelle, who he has brought up as a son. Lambeau is a failure and has virtually given up on his career as a football coach. Then his friend, Freddie Wiseman, encourages him to re-enter this field, and he does so by re-locating to Plainfolk in Texas and joins the Heartland State University. It is here he will meet some of the most pathetic players, and quite disillusioned he goes about to find new-comers. He finds a kicker in Jasminder Featherfoot, provided of course, he keeps her involvement secret from the rest of her family. Then he finds Lance Truman, whose drag queen dad has brought him up more like a tom-girl. With these additions and others Lambeau sets forth to include his team in the next Super...Er...Toilet Bowl 2 series, and it is here that he will find that Lance fumbles a lot; Barb is not quite faithful as she seems; he will soon be in jail for Indecent Exposure; ...

Funny can't triumph over stupid
27 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Like my headline says, Comebacks was a funny movie. Everything was perfect from a funny persons perspective.It was usually crude humor, using a sex reference for almost everything and anything. If you have seen Epic Movie, you know what I am talking about. Still, you can easily be entertained by this movie. There are no big screen actors, but i also wouldn't think anyone making box office classics to do a parody movie. Its basically just a mash of all your favorite sports movies put together, but stupid and funny. This movie is basically aimed at teens and younger adults, because quite frankly I think they are the only ones who would find the humor even funny. If you are looking for a good laugh, The Comebacks is the movie for you.
