Basketball my one true weakness. Ben Affleck gives a compelling performance as a high school basketball coach trying to lead a failing program back to prominence. There’s not an aspect of this film that is particularly noteworthy, it’s as by the books as a movie nowadays can get. Despite being dry, it’s not bad either. In fact, you do find yourself rooting for characters and engaging in the character study even if it’s a paint by numbers affair. Sometimes it’s fine to enjoy a movie even if it doesn’t have any groundbreaking qualities and that’s the case with this one.
