Diverting, if formulaic, comedy about a hotheaded, big-time college basketball coach (Martin Lawrence) who, after being banned from coaching on the collegiate level, finds redemption by turning a hapless junior high school hoop squad into winners and leading them to the state championship. Directed by Steve Carr, the warmed-over "Bad News Bears"-flavored premise has been done before (and much better), but Lawrence scores some points in his first family-friendly role, as does the film's feel-good message about teamwork, sportsmanship and believing in yourself. Some mildly crude language and humor and minor comic violence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
