Critic Reviews( 3 )
  • Coach is painlessly affable. Mr. Nelson, departing from his customary serious roles, reveals a nice sense of comic timing. The only thing missing is a smidgin of originality. Show More

  • The cast performs intelligently, but deserves better material. For Coach, not a championship season Show More

  • Just so he doesn't bumble and fumble in the ''What does it take to be a dad?'' area - because that's been done before and done to death. [28 Feb 1989, p.3D] Show More
