Robert Townsend plays an overly confident high school basketball coach who’s used to calling all the shots. He recruits a basketball player from another school district to help his team win. When this kid’s mother, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, comes in, she turns his world upside down. She’s not only beautiful, but totally onto the coach’s ways and won’t be messed with. She’s also smart and knows a thing or two about coaching basketball. When Coach won’t take her seriously, she threatens to pull her son off the team. Reluctantly, Coach starts using her plays and the team starts to win. Sparks start to fly on and off the court. A romantic comedy that's also about family, coming of age and making the right plays, on the court and in life.
