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.
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

Coach Roy's bus is a 1985 Chevy Van G-30 Blue Bird Micro Bird. See more »
The design of Coach Roy's bus is incorrect. First of all, the bus is a 1980s Blue Bird Micro Bird first-generation bus, but it has over-windshield lights that appear identical to those used exclusively on the newer early 1990s Blue Bird MB-II/MB-IV buses, whereas Blue Bird MB first-generation buses have the common Blue Bird over-windshield lights. Second, there is no logo above the doors. Every model of Blue Bird MB bus has the Blue Bird logo above the doors. Third, instead of a fan placed on top of the door handle like in other Blue Bird MB buses, there are two air vents mounted on the dashboard, a feature uniquely absent from the Blue Bird MB chassis of the van's model, and only available in the regular van.

So bad it's scary flick that I suppose is pleasant enough for the youngest age groups, but the rest of us will suffer unspeakable pains sitting through this deflated dud. Martin Lawrence is a highly successful college basketball coach who has lost touch with the game and his players. A freak accident at one of his games is the last straw as he is banned from coaching the collegiate ranks and then decides to take a job at his old junior high school (being sent a fax by players without consent from administration, go figure!?). Soon the usual sports underdog story takes place with predictable and tiring results. Lawrence has been hit and miss (usually miss) in more adult-oriented flicks, but he looks like he is just trying to make a quick buck here. The kids are totally forgettable and the rest of the cast is unaccomplished and basically have no business in cinematic features. Plays like one of those Disney Network television movies. Hopelessly terrible air ball. 2 stars out of 5.
