Description

Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full ride to college, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is stuck in a meaningless job and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boy starts to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?

    I like Ben Affleck. It was an ok movie but disagree with the 83%. 53% maybe. If you going to make an addiction movie this seemed kind of flat.
  • All I can say Is Wow!!

    This was amazing! It’s all heart! I prefer this Ben Affleck over Big Budget Affleck the man can act. This is hands down his best performance.
  • Good movie

    It aims to inspire, but lost its way in cliches and corny sentiments.
  • Motivational

    I don’t care what these crybabies who complain about this movie think. Go watch Spongebob or an MCU movie if you wanna hear jokes and hapoy endings. Amazing movie, Ben. A great fil’ representing Ben’s hard and bitter past.
  • Had high hopes...😔

    This movie suffers from a main actor who struggles to find the ability to truly deliver a good performance. I like the storyline (rinse and repeat) but the actor does an awful job of portraying the true intent. There is a main plot but the sub-plots don’t do justice to their focus, e.g. on one of the boy’s story. I feel the writers did a reasonable job but the director failed to capture the true essence of the story. You will find yourself fast forwarding through the scenes of dreadful acting.
