Sober Film Critic James Brown70 - In the lead role of Jim "Blanco" White, Kevin Costner once again gives us the same Kevin Costner we've seen a million times. This time, it's scrappy old coach Kevin Costner. That being said, his shtick works in this particular movie to decent comedic effect.

Lisa Marie Bowman70 - It's well-acted and likable but there's not a surprising moment in the entire film.
