Wendy Hanler (Missi Pyle) is a hard working soccer mom of three kids. Her daughter Becca (Emily Osment) is on the losing Galaxy. She's frustrated and angry after the death of the father/couch. She wants to quit. Couch Kenny is an inept idiot who is moving to Milan. He tells them that famous Italian soccer player Lorenzo Vincenzo (Dan Cortese) is retiring from injury and wants to help couch them. It turns out that Lorenzo was just saying Si to get rid of Kenny. So Wendy decides to do a Mrs Doubtfire and pretends to be Lorenzo.
The writing is a little clunky and wants to be funnier than it actually is. Missi Pyle as Lorenzo isn't that funny and very freaky looking. The basic story of the complicated mother daughter relationship is touching. The TV movie production looks to be on the cheaper side. It's a marginal TV movie. It's a family story dependent mostly on the performances of Missi Pyle and Emily Osment, and they do a commendable job.
