If you like your inspirational stories formulaic and predictable, Coach Carter is the ticket.

Extras on the disc include a documentary on the real Ken Carter, a 'making of' featurette, plus six deleted scenes.

It's Jackson's dominating yet enlightened performance that infuses the film with much of its vigor. (Blu-ray Edition)

There's a kick butt performance from Samuel Jackson, the master of the take-no-prisoners motormouth school of acting, even if it is only a high school gym.
