Storyline

To his friends and to his girlfriend Zoe, Nick is stuck in perpetual adolescence: he's approaching 30, lives off a trust fund, has no job and no responsibilities. When Zoe abruptly leaves him and New York for a job in Los Angeles, Nick comes up with a strategy to get her back: taking a job as a soccer coach of a junior-high team. At first it's a diversion - just a strategy. Then, primarily through Hector, the team's best player, Nick engages. In the process, he meets an ER doc who interests him, goes behind Hector's father's back to keep the lad on the team, and realizes he's conflicted when he gets the chance to reconnect with Zoe. Can arrested development give way to maturity? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not quite a romantic comedy, not a sports drama, not anything actually
6 December 2010 | by adiaceSee all my reviews

Coach as all the elements of a romantic comedy. It even builds up to a be a kids sports drama (like mighty ducks). Unfortunately none of the human relationships are developed (or make sense), and as a result the whole damn thing falls apart. At times it feels like they had a decent movie together but then they edited any semblance of character development out of it.

I can not believe I made it to the end of the movie, towards the end it feels like it will all come together, but it doesn't... making the movie even more disappointing than I thought it would be.

All in all, the only reason to watch this movie is if you are on a quest to watch every par movie made in 2010 (like me).

Oh, also, the kids in the movie are the best (and only) actors.
