The Winning Season Reviews

Stephen Holden
New York Times
Top Critic IconTop Critic

In its final lap The Winning Season collapses into a sentimental farce that even Mr. Rockwell, now playing the clown, cannot redeem from cringe-inducing hokum.

Rockwell does a typically fine job -- he's funny, touching and appalling -- as an alcoholic mess of a former high school basketball coach who's been reduced to washing dishes in a restaurant.

The story deepens through the clownish, heartbreaking exertions of Rockwell's gruff misfit, still working things out at the final buzzer.

A predictable and cliched dramady.

Forget AA; according to the movies, there's no better cure for alcoholism or depression than good ol' precollegiate athletic coaching.

The Winning Season respects its misfits (and its audience) by not stripping away their foibles in the service of sports-movie clichés.
