Product Description

This spoof comedy follows an out-of-luck coach, Lambeau Fields, who takes a rag-tag bunch of college misfits and drives them towards the football championships. In the process, this life-long loser discovers that he is a winner after all by redeeming himself, saving his relationship with his family and friends, and finding that there is indeed, no "I" in "team"!

Amazon.com

David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Bergundy) gives an outsized Farley-esque performance as Lambeau Fields, the worst coach in history, who accepts a position at Heartland State University, home of the hapless football team, the Comebacks, in rural Texas. Will he ignore his wife (Melora Hardin from The Office) in pursuit of victory? Will his rebellious gymnast teenage daughter (Brooke Nevin) choose the team's hotshot me-first player (Jackie Long) or the tutu-wearing quarterback (Matthew Lawrence) whose fumbles are an embarrassment to his father, a Cher impersonator? Will the star player Aceel Tare (Robert Ri'chard) live up to his name (mispronounced by Coach as "ACL Tear")? Will the team make it to the--oy--Toilet Bowl? The Comebacks tackles the inspirational "one last shot" sports movie, but is mostly content to simply quote other sports films and TV shows, including Field of Dreams, Bend It Like Beckham, Stick It, Remember the Titans, Invincible, Miracle, Dodge Ball (itself a sports film spoof), the Friday Night Lights TV series, and Radio (with a mentally challenged character named--wait for it--iPod). Some of The Comebacks is inspired. The Coach, demanding total commitment from his players, insists they flunk their courses and rack up felonies and probations. The fractious team bonds over Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" in a lip-synced, pyrotechnic performance worthy of MTV's Music Video Awards. And Bill Buckner wins the good sports award for a cameo that re-creates his momentous error in the '86 World Series. Despite several fumbles (a 15-yard penalty for the Andy Dick cameo), The Comebacks manages to score enough laughs to cheer Date Movie/Epic Movie fans, although it's not in the same league as Not Another Teen Movie or the Scary Movie films. --Donald Liebenson
