When Goldie Hawn tangles with high school varsity coach Bruce McGill, anyone can foresee the final confrontation.

Sure enough, when McGill has her appointed football coach at the unspeakable ghetto school, Central High, it’s an inevitable collision course. Along the way crises pop up at carefully placed intervals, the first being winning the confidence of the rag-tag collection of players.

Michael Ritchie’s direction lacks his usual bite and eye for detail. There is nothing spontaneous about the action and football footage is also surprisingly dull.

Hawn, seemingly on screen for the entire film, is fun to watch as she runs her team through aerobics and mugs for the camera, but even better is Nipsey Russell as the rough-hewn high school principal with a word for all occasions.
