The Rebound

Martin Lawrence stars as a college basketball coach whose bad behavior courtside earns him a lifetime ban from the game—unless he can redeem himself by coaching a team of middle school misfits. Lawrence reportedly earns $20 million a picture, but the only enjoyment I got out of this listless PG comedy was watching the funny-looking kids steal every scene from him, simply by virtue of being funny-looking kids. Steve Carr (Daddy Day Care) directed; with Wendy Raquel Robinson and Horatio Sanz. 89 min.
