Seeking to offer his son the satisfying summer camp experience that eluded him as a child, the operator of a neighborhood daycare center opens his own camp, only to face financial hardship and stiff competition from a rival camp.
Cuba Gooding Jr.,
When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero, basketball star Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team, while Kevin Durant suddenly can't make a shot to save his life.
Family man Phil Weston, a lifelong victim of his father's competitive nature, takes on the coaching duties of a kids' soccer team, and soon finds that he's also taking on his father's dysfunctional way of relating.
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.Written by

You Know, I've been reading these books that say that you should give yourself pats on the back. Daddy never gave me pats on the back. Daddy never gave me any...

I went with one of my best friends to see this with her family. Martin Lawrence kept you laughing. We literally giggled the entire time. And the her family behind us (her two brothers, 11 and 5, and cousins 7 and 10, and mom 42)...DON'T GET ME STARTED! If you enjoy a clean, funny movie for the family, this is a great one to choose. Actually, the basketball team reminded me of my own at school! (haha...we're pitiful! :S) But we really enjoyed it, and I encourage any of you that haven't seen it, it's a good one for the family. Sure, it would probably been more of a hit on Disney Channel as an Original Movie, but it kept you interested and laughing.
