A hoops coach with an anger management problem coaches a team of middle school misfits in the basketball comedy, Rebound. Find out if this flick is a slam dunk or an airball.

Rebound - Old School Meets Middle School

Roy McCormick (played by Martin Lawrence) is a high-strung college basketball coach with a huge ego and an even bigger anger management problem. When he accidently kills an opposing team's mascot after a serious mental meltdown, he is fired from his job as a top college coach and is forced to redeem himself by coaching the basketball team at his old junior high school. Coach Roy's new team, the Mount Vernon Smelters, is seriously bad. They haven't won a game in years and they haven't even scored a basket all season! After the Smelters lose 109-0, Coach Roy is sick of being embarrassed and becomes determined to lead his squad to a state title. Along the way, Roy bonds with his players and rediscovers his love of basketball.

Rebound - Hopeless Hoopsters

The best parts of Rebound - and unfortunately there aren't that many - involve the pathetic players on the Smelters basketball team. This team of hopeless hoopsters include Ralph (played by Steven Anthony Lawrence) , who pukes his guts out everytime he steps on the court, Big Mac (Tara Correa McMullen), the toughest girl in the school, and Wes (Steven C. Parker), a tall but uncoordinated nerd, who somehow learns to use his size to his advantage. The occasionally funny antics of this team of underdogs, as they predictably play their way to the state championship game, are the only part of this flick that's worth watching.

Rebound - DVD Features

There aren't a ton of extras on the Rebound DVD but you are able to check out some cool photo galleries and movie trailers from other flicks like Like Mike 2, Dr. Dolittle 3 and the Sandlot 2!

Rebound - The Bottom Line

Rebound is one ugly airball of a movie. While the storyline isn't bad, the jokes aren't really funny and you keep thinking and hoping that the movie will start to get funny - but it never does. This flick is more predictable than a LA Clippers losing streak and you'll find more laughs watching reruns of Full House or blender demonstrations on the Home Shopping Channel. Unless you love Martin Lawrence or your parents offer to take you to this movie for free, don't waste your time. There are lots of better summer movies out there right now for you to spend your money on, so don't bother pulling out your wallet to see Rebound.
