Storyline

Back in high school, Jack Cunningham had everything going for him. A basketball phenom, he could have punched his ticket to college or even the pros, but, instead, he chose to walk away from the game, forfeiting his future. Jack's glory days are long gone...but, as it turns out, not forgotten. Years later, he gets the chance to take back his life when he is asked to coach the struggling basketball team at his alma mater. Jack reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself, and as the boys start to come together as a team and win, he may get his last shot at redemption. Written by Warner Bros

What is this movie about?
15 April 2020 | by peter-laganisSee all my reviews

There is no doubt Ben Affleck did a GREAT job... but this is probably the only thing I will remember about the movie. The story completely lacks of originality, neglects the side characters and tends to stereotype and simplify the main character.
