The Comebacks

Overall D

Lambeau Fields (David Koechner) is as dysfunctional as the college football team he has been asked to coach. Nevertheless, as he and his players strive for the championships with unaccustomed determination, they learn a thing or two about themselves--and spoof some of the best inspirational sports movies ever made.

Why is The Comebacks rated PG-13? The Comebacks is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for crude and sexual content throughout and some drug material

Nonstop sexual innuendo, crass anatomical jokes and bathroom humor make up the majority of the script in this sports spoof. The coach and other adult characters promote alcohol consumption and the use of illegal drugs. Along with some rough game play, one character is shot with a handgun and others are threatened with knives or other weapons. A speeding bus hits at least two other characters. Vulgarities, terms of Deity and sexual comments are also included.
