Kaylene Larsen's dream finally came true: beautiful twins from an in vitro procedure. But when Kaylene needs home care, the nurse she hires is none other than the egg donor herself -- and the crazy woman has come to claim "her" babies.
Attractive high school swimming star Javicia Leslie (as Samantha Morgan) lands in hot water after making waves with her handsome, well-built assistant coach Tom Maden (as Bryce Hinge). Talking a dip with Mr. Maden could jeopardize Ms. Leslie's college and Olympic opportunities. Her blond boyfriend Cameron Jebo (as Lucas) senses something is up. Leslie's single mom Keesha Sharp (as Gina), a former swimming champion, could have some ugly secrets from her past revealed. They all become entwined in a "Lifetime" TV movie filled with fleeting sex, firm skin, and a seemingly psycho killer...
While the cast of "Killer Coach" is imaginatively diverse, the characterizations and story do not make the grade. A college setting might have helped. Leslie is especially unlike a high school teenager. However, she and her leading men are good looking. The most convincing acting is accomplished by Ms. Sharp, who benefits from seeming to fit her role. Lee Friedlander's direction and Ian S. Takahashi's underwater photography are strengths. While this is certainly and unabashedly a formula movie, you couldn't be blamed for thinking the pieces might add up to something more entertaining and engaging.
*** Killer Coach (6/3/2016) Lee Friedlander ~ Javicia Leslie, Tom Maden, Keesha Sharp, Cameron Jebo
