Cathy Lee Crosby plays the title role in Coach and she's a former Olympic gold
medal track star who takes a job as a high school basketball coach over the

Wynn channeled his performance in that Disney classic The Absent Minded Professor into this much inferior picture. As for Crosby she finds some romance with one of her star players Michael Biehn. He's quite the hunk in

Costello in Here Com The Coeds also a much better picture.
This a good film for the drive-in trade. And you'll have to see Coach to understand the significance of jabberwocky.
