M. 2005. Sports film about the take-no-prisoners coach who whips the highschool basketball team into shape. He demands every one of the trash-talking knuckleheads gets good academic grades or they don’t play, which becomes a source of conflict. Samuel L. Jackson is the whole show and the sole reason for watching. 9.30pm, Go!
M. 2009. Uneven comedy with Jack Black and Michael Cera as cavemen back at the dawn of time but with today’s sensibilities and jokes. Cast out of their tribe, they move anachronistically through Biblical times, meeting Cain and Abel and Abraham among others. Some of the gags work well, but too many die like the dinosaurs. Prehistoric movies aren’t what they used to be.
