Overview

A man hoping to make his way back to the big time starts by heading back to middle school in this comedy. Roy McCormick Martin Lawrence is one of the most successful coaches in college basketball, but he's just as famous for his hair-trigger temper as he is for molding winning teams. When an outburst of anger during a game escalates into an embarrassing public indecent, McCormick loses his job and is banned from college sports. Looking for a way to rehabilitate his image, McCormick takes a job coaching the basketball team at the middle school he used to attend, only to discover his players are a handful of misfits and losers with no skill on the court. Can McCormick mold the kids into a winning team -- and make himself into a better man along the way? Rebound also stars Wendy R. Robinson, Breckin Meyer, Horatio Sanz, Megan Mullally, and Patrick Warburton.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Rebound is a comedy of exaggerations. Coach Roy McCormick (Martin Lawrence) is so far gone down the road toward celebrity bimbo-hood, decked out in suits and bling-bling, he doesn't seem capable of ever having coached a championship team. Then, the middle school team he agrees to coach as penance for his bad behavior is so inept, we see them get shut out -- an unheard of result in a basketball game -- not once, but twice. (56-0 and 109-0 if you're keeping score). That kind of abject failure makes their improbable revival as a contender for the state championship the film's greatest exaggeration of all. Exaggeration can be a key ingredient in good comedy, but unfortunately, Rebound isn't good comedy. In fact, it's no kind of rebound in the career department for Lawrence, earning only a paltry $17 million domestically, on the heels of a string of cinematic failures by the comic. Nor is it his worst movie. Lawrence earns points for playing his character mostly straight -- even if he's not believable as a successful coach, he's at least believable as a guy with good intentions that went bad. Rebound never had the ingredients to be a very good movie, but it would have been a lot worse if Lawrence played his character in a constant state of mugging. Instead, he only resorts to playing the fool in a couple scenes, notably when he takes on the unnecessary second role of a charlatan preacher dressed in purple, looking like a dead ringer for Katt Williams (who actually appears in a mysteriously small role as the preacher's sidekick). More often, Rebound tries to play the traditional role of an underdog sports movie where all the characters have minor emotional journeys to complete, and it's not a terrible version of that movie.

    Basketball Rules: Spoilers Alert!

    Hey all you sports fans out there! Well then this is the movie for you! Rebound is a hilarious and interesting. Every time I watch it, I laugh. I also pay very close attention so I don¿t miss one little part. I always eat popcorn while watching it with my family and friends. It¿s hilarious because there is a fat boy that loves to eat. He was eating a cupcake when a guy in the base room opens up the door and smacks the cupcake into the boys face. Also, the basketball coach kicks a basketball and it hits a hawk right in the face and kills it. It¿s interesting because I like to see the coach and kids get through a season with not that much skill. I also like to see what my family does when they watch specific parts such as when the basketball coach has to find a new coaching job because of his temper earlier in the season. Also, when the basketball team gets beat really bad they think that they will lose every game of the season. I like to see how the team will make it through with a confident attitude. Rebound has got to be one of my favorite movies ever. It¿s a wonderful movie and I would give kids advice to watch it, if they liked sports. Almost all of my friends like sports so I¿m pretty sure all of them would watch it with me. Rebound is a movie that you would want to watch over and over again! Basketball movies are always great movies. I have watched plenty of them, and I always watch everyone of them more than once. This basketball team in Rebound goes from last to 1st! Their coach, Roy McCormic is helping them get better with some basic drills. The team that beats them in the beginning of the season, 109 to 0, gets a great rematch! The main team in the story meets the team that beat them 109 to 0 during the season. The two teams meet in the championship! The team that ended up winning it all was the team that got beat every game until now! I would highly suggest this movie to people that like sports.
