COACH CARTER

Supposedly based on a true story. Another Cinderella-team tale a la “Hoosiers”, but grittier. Samuel Jackson and a great cast of kids kept my finger off the FF button.

HITCH

A script that follows the Hollywood formula, but well-done formula with an engaging cast.

SILVER CITY

Great cast. Chris Cooper is super (yeah it rhymes) as a clueless candidate and Richard Dreyfuss gets to play a shark instead of chase one.
