The Comebacks

Comedy . Sport

A comedy that spoofs the inspirational sports movies, The Comebacks tells the story of an out-of-luck coach, Lambeau Fields, who takes a rag-tag bunch of college misfits and drives them towards the football championships. In the process, this life-long loser discovers that he is a winner after all by redeeming himself, saving his relationship with his family and friends, and finding that there is indeed, no "I" in "team"!

More Info:
  • Wesley Morris

    As dumb spoofs go, The Comebacks isn't bad. It takes almost every sports movie of the last five years ("Field of Dreams," too) and blends them into a single slapdash comedy.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Stina Chyn

    It’s mostly eighty-four minutes of puns, double entendres, and Freudian slips.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Adhering to few solid comedic principles, The Comebacks swings wildly between lame movie references and slapstick, slightly less lame funny names (such as Aseel Tare, the running back who couldn't possibly be injured) and Airplane!-style spoof, and a few mildly amusing stabs at irony.

  • Frank Scheck

    Koechner tries hard, but ultimately scores few laughs except for when, like Ferrell, he bares his comically less than toned, fleshy body.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Gene Seymour

    You'll be goaded throughout The Comebacks to think of "Bend It Like Beckham," "Remember the Titans," "Rudy," "Hoosiers," "Field of Dreams" and their ilk. What you also think about is how much this stuff worked better in "Airplane!" or "Blazing Saddles."

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    Isn’t as obnoxiously awful as, say, "Epic Movie"; it’s simply not funny in the least.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    The movie’s low aspirations are depressing because its best gags are agreeably demented.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Someone should tell these guys you can't score a touchdown throwing lateral passes.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    We're treated to endless scenes of women getting slammed, thrown and clothes lined, while men's genitals are grabbed, groped, stroked and tasered. It's all just as painful as it sounds.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Josh Rosenblatt

    It’s too bad the filmmakers didn’t have a longer view of film history, though; maybe their jokes would have been more interesting if they’d been aimed at, say, "Somebody Up There Likes Me" or "The Pride of the Yankees."

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jennie Punter

    At the end of The Comebacks, Coach is offered job with a college basketball team called The Sequels - a joke perhaps, but all too horrifying a prospect after watching this dull fumble.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Gregory Kirschling

    Probably the worst movie that's sludged across my professional eyeballs -- worse than "Daddy Day Camp," "Baby Geniuses 2," and "BloodRayne."

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    An exceptionally lame genre parody that plumbs depths of ineptitude heretofore charted only by the marginally less abysmal "Date Movie."
