Tediously unfunny sports comedy. Samuel L. Jackson puts in full effort as the Don King pastiche but the punchlines just aren’t there. Scenes run aimlessly past their poorly elaborated point. The butchered script tries to aim for an Elmore Leoonard ensemble caper mode but isn’t even in the same weight division. Can’t believe I’ve watched this twice.
