Sam Rockwell’s acting saves this formulaic tale of redemption. Bill (Rockwell) gets a job coaching a girls’ high school basketball team. Predictably, Bill whips the team into shape with a no-nonsense approach. Rockwell’s comic timing and world-weary fatigue keep the film dramatic. The ensemble of actresses—Emma Roberts, Margo Martindale and Jessica Hecht—don’t fare so well.
