Rebound is almost the same movie as Coach Carter, played for Bad News Bears/ Mighty Ducks/Big Green/ Kicking and Screaming laughs.

I can't recommend the movie, except to younger viewers, but I don't dislike it. It's Coach Carter Lite, and it does what it does.

Another in the endless series of movies about losers and klutzes who overcome lack of talent in one quick montage to learn the meaning of teamwork and beat the meanies.

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.

... a dumb, cookie-cutter sports movie that knows nothing about sports and even less about comedy.

Lawrence hogs the spotlight more greedily than Dennis Rodman in his wedding dress-wearing heyday.

The movie's bad, but at least it isn't aggressively annoying. It has puke jokes, but hey -- no farts! Put those quotes in your ads, 20th Century Fox.

It's getting more than a little tiresome sitting through sport movies revolving around a team of under-aged underdogs and their curmudgeonly coach.

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

With the bounceless Rebound, Martin Lawrence has managed the feat of transforming from razor-tongue Bad Boys comic into a cuddly Bill Cosby clone.

Bad News Bears is due out next month, and one wonders what's more derivative: a remake of an old movie or a brand-new movie that merely rehashes the same old story with different faces?

Carr helms this fluffy formulaic sports fable with all the urgency of an awkward bounce pass...Rebound commits its share of flagrant personal fouls

The funniest joke comes in the credits when it is revealed that it took five writers to come up with a story and screenplay that you and I could have coughed up one morning before lunch, depending on our typing skills.

Rebound has the casting formula down pat. Fat kid, check. Tom boy, check. Gangly dude, check...

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

Director Steve Carr doesn't even bother with scenes of the basketball team misfits discovering their skills and a love of the game. He just assumes you know the formula.
