We've suffered through spoofs of just about every genre of movie in the past decade, each inspired by the success of Scary Movie and generally involving titles just as bland - Not Another Teen Movie, Epic Movie, and so on. At least The Comebacks, an attempt to spoof inspirational sports movies like Hoosiers and Remember the Titans, tried to come up with a real title, even if the rest of the movie is a brain-draining mess that doesn't even seem to fully comprehend sports movies in the first place. It's seriously baffling how any filmmaker couldn't mine some real jokes out of so many cliches, but somehow director Tom Brady has pulled off a feat as unbelievable as Rocky Balboa making his own comeback.
