Movie Info

Richard Roundtree stars as tennis-coach Chip Williams in this uneven adolescent comedy. Coach Williams must whip his players into shape for the big tournament in Las Vegas. The Kid (Scott Strader) and his cohorts run wild in Vegas on and off the court as the coach tries to keep the star players out of trouble before the match. Christopher Lee and R. G. Armstrong appear in character roles and Jane Mansfield's daughter Mariska Hargitay is the heroine Nicole.

You can see Christopher Lee comically ogle a transvestite in another movie, I'm sure.

Audience Reviews for Jocks


I dunno how I was able to sit through a movie starring a character called The Kid without trying to track the actor down and kill him, but it happened. The porno-looking cover is very leading, but this was a watchable flick in which a bunch of misfits have to get their act together for a tennis tournament and put the cocky kids in their place.

Worth a rental.

I remember seeing this movie on HBO back in 1987, I liked this movie and still do.

Mariska Hargitay, before her days on "Law & Order: SVU" was in this film. Donald Gibb, best know for his role as Ogre in the "Revenge of the Nerds" film series is awesome in this classic. Perry Lang, wo I liked in the 1983 comedy film "Spring Break" is cool, too.
