Coach Carter

Samuel L. Jackson stars as the controversial real-life coach who benched his entire high school basketball team for poor academics. The film gets points for balancing academics with sporting prowess, but it's still your typical overexhausted, inspirational tale of determined coaches and underdog teams. Jackson makes for a compassionate lead; but, at a lengthy 130 minutes, this melodrama has time to include just about every sports movie cliché. 130 minutes PG-13.
