'Coach' trailer: Hugh Dancy is Hugh Grant, with believable athletic ability

Posted on

Watching the trailer for Coach, it’s easy to think it’s just another film about a guy who finds his worth (and a woman) coaching a kids’ team (in this case, soccer). But it’s not. It has Hugh Dancy! Also, Community‘s Gillian Jacobs, as the soon-to-be ex girlfriend who insists he do something with his life, and Last Chance Harvey‘s Liane Balaban, as the doctor who actually makes him want to be a better man.

Are you a sucker for these films, too? Or does the man-child-coming-of-age romantic sports dramedy genre need to be retired?
