Coach Carter

Starring: Ashanti, Rob Brown, Samuel L. Jackson; Director: Thomas Carter; Release Date Wide: 01/14/2005; Runtime (in minutes): 140; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Paramount Studios

Samuel L. Jackson stars as an inner-city high school basketball coach and tough-love academic drill sergeant rolled into one. The actor uses his nimble inflections to turn threats into play, but this formula flick is facile and overly long.
