Movie Info

A trust fund party boy becomes the coach of his neighborhood youth soccer team after his model girlfriend kicks him to the curb and his former drinking buddies all decide to move on with their lives. When it comes to motivation, Nick (Hugh Dancy) is sorely lacking. Content just to watch life pass by while he lives it up with friends, Nick struggles to find direction after everyone he knows disappears. Nick may not know the first thing about coaching sports, but when an opportunity with a local youth league opens up, he jumps. After striking up a fast friendship with one of his young charges, the aging slacker falls for pretty young doctor Gabrielle, who displays little patience for his irresponsible lifestyle. Before long things start looking up for Nick, but when his ex comes back begging forgiveness, everything starts to fall apart. If Nick can just find a way to show Gabrielle that he's really changed, perhaps she will discover that he's a catch worth hanging on to.

Audience Reviews for Coach

Decent, not great. It had its moments, but not a whole lot of them. Definitely my least favorite Hugh Dancy movie so far.

Hugh Dancy plays Coach, a rich trust-fund slacker, but when his girlfriend Zoe dumps him he reluctantly agrees to become a youth soccer coach as he attempts to prove that he can be responsible. So he coaches kids' soccer, where we find the usual misfit kids who he is able to bring together and they in turn show him a thing or two about growing up. Along the way he meets Gabrielle a nurse who questions his party-boy lifestyle and thinks him immature.
