Indie sports comedy starring Seann William Scott as Gary, an over-enthusiastic high school janitor with a failed career as a tennis pro behind him. Undeterred, Gary starts coaching his beloved sport to a group of misfits. But can he achieve his goal of leading this unlikely band of sporting heroes to the Nebraska state championship?

Over the last decade or so, American comedies have dealt with just about every sport from Dodgeball ('Dodgeball') to figure skating ('Blades of Glory'), and in 'Gary the Tennis Coach', Seann William Scott strings up his racket to give "lady tennis" a go. The film focuses on Gary Houseman, a former young tennis star who has blown his chances of sporting glory, and has taken up the position of Janitor at an ordinary Nebraska high school. Gary's tennis skills are spotted, however, and he is asked to become assistant coach of the school tennis team, and soon takes over the job of head coach when (Gary's new-found idol) the likeable but, supremely unfit Coach Tuttle (an excellent turn from Randy Quaid) dies. It then becomes Gary's job to try to coach a team of mediocre kids (and one confused Phillipine ping-pong champion) to success. Scott puts in an excellent turn as Gary, (though the script never allows the character to develop as fully as he could); perfecting the balance between genuinely charming and faintly ridiculous, and the cast as a whole is good, especially Emilee Wallace, as Coach Tuttle's beautiful, earnest daughter Jenny.

The film's comedy, like it's quality of tennis, is a little bit hit and miss. The film's sub-plot, involving a confused athlete from the Philippines is almost painfully unfunny, but moments like Gary's attempt to communicate in painfully bad spanish to Miss Sanchez, the sexy Spanish teacher, make up for it. The film's comedy sometimes undercuts its more tender moments, which are actually handled surprisingly well, and suggest that Scott, lo-and-behold, might actually be decent in a serious role. At times things are a rather too predictable, and as mentioned above, one or two of the jokes and sub-plots fall flat, but 'Gary the Tennis Coach' is an engaging watch, with some good laughs, a few well-handled serious moments, and a set of underdogs you'll have no trouble cheering on.

Completely disagree with the other review. This clearly was not meant to be a big budget film, so has not got a well known cast or flashy production, but that doesnt matter as its all about The Scott. This was one of the funniest films ive seen in ages, just pure genius, dont quite know how the other chap didnt get it. Perfect timing. Little girls bit at the end in my top 3 most well delivered lines of all time. Absolute classic, its different , granted but so wrong and yet so right in so many ways. If you like, Anchorman, Old School, Happy Gilmore, Waterboy etc, you will love this. Nuff said!

Beneath the toilet humour, beneath the raunchy sex-for-laughs stuff there is a really excellent film played out in a comic format of one of the dispossessed alienated from family and culture who finds his way back inspired by a dead tennis coach.

Seann W Scott does such a good job making this central character credible ~ he is not reviving Stiffler here ~ I would now put him up with Jim Carrey and Steve Carell as a comic actor who can bring real heart to a film.

This one is well worth the watch and any viewer expecting a slice of American Pie may well be surprised at what this young guy can really do and you will even learn to forgive him the gayest moustache seen on the screen since Burt Reynolds

This is a film obviously built as a vehicle for it's main actor, Seann William Scott. He was good as one of the stars in American Pie, but he struggles to carry a whole film on his own and his at first amusing style becomes boring after the first 15 minutes. As a film to amuse a group of 12 year old boys it might just pass, but if you want more out of your film, then best just to give it a pass.

I wasn't expecting much from this but it is a fun little comedy. Full of the obvious jokes for the situations the characters get in, there are some fun characters like the principal's little daughter Amy (Ryan Simpkins) who gets some great dialogue not that disimilar to that of Bobbe'J Thompson's character in Role Models. This is far from Seann William Scott's or Randy Quaid's best movie but the story flows well, it's funny enough and it passes the time as a formulaic comedy. Rent it. 3/5

I am always up for new movie - something unusual or different that might turn out to be an undiscovered Gem - but sadly this failed to deliver.

Potentially it could be funny - but the plot development is uninteresting and predictable.

Dont be expecting 'steve stiffler' in this role - he's a different character this time.

The Jokes are tired and have been used before. The little narrations when he writes his diary provided an opportunity for some witty asides but again it didnt deliver.

It is set in a plainly shot, pretty dull looking Nebraska and has that 'middle of nowehere' feel of America you get with "Napoleon Dynamite" and "Whats eating Gilbert Grape". It has a few bizzare moments (e.g. an owl with the former tennis coaches face turning up...) that are niether funny or adding anything to the plot - its just bizzare??

I didn't enjoy much of this film - I may have chuckled twice, it wasnt the worst thing I have seen but i wont be wathcing it again or recommending it to anyone.
