Coach Carter

Despite its punishing length (135 minutes), this afternoon-TV special trying to pass as a real movie earns an extra half solely for Samuel L. Jackson, who brings his usual fire to the role of Ken Carter — a real-life high-school basketball coach who benched his team for getting lousy grades. Director Thomas Carter gives every sports-drama cliche a chance to play. No bad idea is benched.
