The Comebacks is a U.S. comedy satire that was written by Ed Yeager and Joey Gutierrez, based upon a story by John Aboud, Michael Colton, Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson. Directed by Tom Brady, the movie features David Koechner, Carl Weathers, Melora Hardin, Brooke Nevin and Andy Dick, among others. The story centers around the plots and cliches of sports films. Lambeau Fields, a coach (played by David Koechner) is considered the worst coach that anyone can remember in the long history of sports. He is hopeless, incompetent and therefore, disrespected by all. Freddie Wiseman, a fellow coach (played by Carl Weathers) convinces him to try one more time. He assures his wife, the long suffering Barb (played by Melora Hardin) that things will be okay. The coach moves the family to Plainfolk, Texas. He hopes to restore his reputation and redeem himself, beginning his attempt to improve an abysmal record. Coaching the Heartland State University football team, he finds he has a team full of misfits who do not know the basics of football. To make matters worse, the townspeople are not enamored of him and quite skeptical. He uses unorthodox tactics to try to whip the ragged team into some semblance of order - both on and off the game. He and the team embark upon a rollicking road to the playoffs. The team makes some progress so that they actually find themselves at the South Southwest Conference Championship at what is known as the 2nd Annual Toilet Bowl. When it is time to face their fierce competitors, the team gets as prepared as they can. The Comebacks are to face off against the Unbeatables of the Lone Star State. The Comebacks use their talents and ingenuity along with unorthodox methods during the final showdown. The Comebacks were victorious. However, Coach Lambeau gets knocked out by a bus that his friend Freddie was driving. As Lambeau writhes in pain, Freddie laughs hysterically.
