James C. Strouse writes and directs this sporty comedy about a slacker dad who is offered a second chance. Divorced and estranged from his teenage daughter Molly (Shana Dowdeswell), Bill (Sam Rockwell)'s luck changes when his friend Terry (Rob Corddry), the high school principal, offers him the chance to coach the girls' basketball team. Bill's initial enthusiasm, however, rapidly wanes after meeting his rebellious charges, Abbie (Emma Roberts), Tamra (Meaghan Witri), Mindy (Melanie Hinkle), Wendy (Rooney Mara), Lisa (Shareeka Epps), and Kathy (Emily Rios). But as they get to know each other over the coming weeks and the team's results begin to improve, Bill and the girls soon come to realise that they can learn a lot about life from each other.
