Only connect. In a Hoosier town, boys' basketball is king. Bill is a former athlete and high-school coach who drinks too much, rarely sees his daughter from an old marriage, and busses tables at a local cafe. A friend who's now a principal offers him a job coaching girls; Bill takes it without much spirit. Six come to practice; one has a broken foot. They're awful in their first game, and Bill has to figure out, with help from Donna, the school's burly bus driver, if he actually can coach girls. They respond, and Bill suddenly has a family of sorts, just as his own relationship with his daughter worsens. With a winning season in reach, will Bill blow this chance? Written by

Sorry to burst your bubble, honey, but you're not my type.

I'm moving! I'm moving! Go ahead! Go ahead!
What's your type?
I like big teets and onion butt.
What's an onion butt?
It's an ass that brings tears to your eyes.

You'd think a movie with that much acting clout would have some redeeming value, but this does not. First off, everything having to do with high school basketball is wrong on so many levels. In what era does this high school exist? Most schools across the country have well established girls basketball programs and have so for decades. This place seems like it's 30 years in the past for some reason and it's embarrassing and insulting to watch.
The writing is gawdawful throughout and there is some really terrible acting on display from some of the supporting cast (the coach's ex-wife and kid come to mind). Rooney Mara is stunningly terrible and this performance raises huge doubts as to whether she'll be able to pull off the much hyped Lisbeth Salander role.
