Critics Consensus: Full of groin-centric humor and tired sports clichés, The Comebacks is poor even by parody movie standards.

for those who would rather step on a tack than sit through another Miracle, this film is a long overdue revival to the spoof genre.

Crude sports spoof too dumbed-down to be funny.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that because this sports-movie spoof has been marketed as being from the creators of Wedding Crashers, it's definitely going to appeal to teens. Originally rated R (it got its PG-13 on appeal), it has a lot of sexual references -- mostly through double entendres and sight gags (a wife is caught in bed with another man, a girl gymnast makes several lesbian jokes, etc.) -- though no actual nudity. There's also drinking and drug use, particularly on the part of the crazy coach who wants his players to learn how to party. Some language ("s--t") and cartoonish, slapstick-type violence.
