  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The only thing wrong with Roy McCormick's (Lawrence) coaching skills is his attitude. When the college coach is officially banned from coaching in the NCBA, he goes on the "Rebound" looking for a place where he can put his talent to use. When he's offered a position at his old middle school, Roy reluctantly agrees to take the job. And as he tries to make the group of misfits into better team players, he discovers that they have actually made him into a better man. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced DVD picture exhibits a very nicely balanced color scheme, with rich hues, accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Images are generally sharp and nicely detailed overall, although there is some slight smearing noticed at times. Images can appear edgy, but blatant edge halos are rarely a problem. Minor pixel breakup is also occasional. (Suzanne Hodges)

Music is mixed well in the Dolby
