Lawrence coasts on star power, genially sending up his bad-boy persona.

It's a ready cinematic babysitter for harried moms and dads who need some weekend downtime detox from the brood.

Lawrence and the kids find a common groove, and validate their casting.

This movie is funny with just the right mix of underdog sports, comedy, and charm. Yes, it's predictable, but it's also fun entertainment.

For all its predictability, though, Rebound turns out to be a fun movie for the kids.

Despite the lack of originality, the movie is affable enough, thanks to some canny casting.

Rebound doesn't break new ground in the kids-reform- the-big- bad-guy formula. But it does offer a fun if familiar ride, thanks to Mr. Lawrence's deadpan comedic talents and some cute misfit kids.

Even the teenaged misfit audiences to whom "Rebound" is targeted will lose patience with the film's uninspired gags and lazy writing.

An adequate video babysitter, but kids and parents alike would have a better time simply rewatching The Bad News Bears.

Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if Rebound was written, shot, edited, and released over the course of ... let's be generous and say three weeks.

Will probably go down someplace in the cinema history books, as it is the first film in which star Martin Lawrence never goes "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN!"

Why would such a talent as Martin Lawrence make a totally useless, inane movie? I'm guessing that, as usual, money talks.

It took no fewer than five writers to come up with this dull, harmless re-tread of The Bad News Bears.

Every cliche-filled line and plot element comes from other, better movies, so why not wait for the upcoming remake of "Bad News Bears"?
