  • 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
