The Martin Lawrence movie Rebound is now available on DVD. Martin stars as Coach Roy McCormick, a college basketball coach who is obviously feeling himself a little too much. Photoshoots and hanging on Cadillac Escalades are more important than coaching it appears. When Coach Roy is banned from the NCBA he is left without a college coaching position. His attorney, portrayed by Breckin Meyer, explains to the NCBA that they have to give Coach Roy another chance before they enact a lifetime ban.

Wendy Raquel Robinson (The Steve Harvey Show), stars in the film as the mother of young boy who doesn't have his father in his life. Coach Roy soon finds himself back at his alma mater, Mt. Vernon Jr. High coaching a group of misfit basketball players. The kids are quirky and memorable. Rebound is a funny, family friendly film even if it is a little predictable at time. It's a rather tame film for Martin. Tom Arnold makes a cameo in the film, and Megan Mullally stars as the films principal. The film was directed by Steve Carr who directed the family friendly films Daddy Day Care and Dr. Doolittle 2. It's almost like a basketball version of The Bad News Bears. Although, the movie wasn't a huge commercial success I wouldn't be suprised if there was a sequel.

I give this movie five stars because like "Herbie Fully Loaded," and several other pre-teen movies released this past year, this movie is an excellent movie for "that audience." If you are over 30 and don't have kids, you may not enjoy this movie as much as if you had kids because this isn't like a lot of the other Martin Lawrence movies.

When hot shot college basketball coach Roy McCormick has a meltdown on the court, he's bannished to coach a group of underachievers at his former junior high school. This was a surprizing funny film that isn't full of foul language or tasteless humor. Martin Lawrence shows he can give laughs without being vulgar. Good entertainment for the whole family!

I like how they didn't try to overwrite this. The movie flowed organically ... the situations were real-life and the performances were dead-on of how people really talk in movies. Another glimpse into the incredible range of Martin Lawrence. I think we should all be as impressed as possible. The writers did the audience a favor by not defying our expectations and keeping this digestible to all by keeping it as even-keeled and reaction-proof as possible. Not every movie can do that!

I was worried that Martin Lawrence might be a little to unfunny for me considering this was his first PG rated movie. But he actually was quite amusing and had some laughable one-liners. I definitely prefer the R-rated Lawrence, but it's always nice to see an actor pull off something different.

He seems to do better at "transforming" to PG movies better than Eddie Murphy. I'm really starting to lose interest in Murphy. He just can't do PG movies with the humor I like compared to Lawrence.

But anyway...this movie is cute and amusing for the whole family. The kids show off some great physical humor. Don't buy into the critics telling you this is a dopey, basketball comedy. This is a nice, enjoyable movie for Lawrence fans and children alike. It may not be very original, but how many movies are!

Rebound isn't a horrible movie. There are some laughs but you've seen it all before...a down on his luck coach takes over a group of misfit players who no one else wants to coach and turns them into winners....Let's see, Bad News Bears, Mighty Ducks, Little Giants...yes it's the same plot with different faces and this time the sport is basketball. Roy McCormick (martin Lawrence) is a big time college basketball coach whose tempter tantrums get him banned. The only job he can find in coaching is returning to his old middle school to coach a team of losers who haven't won a game in years. McCormick's agent Tim Fink (Breckin Meyer) believes it will be a good PR move for him to help get his old job back. At first McCormick is all ego and merely shows up. His team consists only of five players playing stereotypical roles...there's the one good player Keith, the fat kid Fuzzy, etc... Keith's mother Jeanie tears into McCormick and right away we know that the two will become romantically involved later. McCormick recruits two more players, the super tall but uncoordinated Wes, and the tough as nails girl nicknamed Big Mac. Tragically, the actress who played Big Mac, Tara Correa was shot and killed in a gang related shooting in 2005.

Well you know the story...McCormick finally gets the kids to play as a team and eventually leads them into the playoffs. Now middle schools in my area don't have playoffs in basketball or state championships but who am I to tread on poetic license. They beat their rivals who are coached by another stereotype role, the coach who yells a lot and wants to win at all costs. Fortunately the coach is played by Patrick Warburton who brings a dash of humor to every role he plays and makes the part watchable.
