Apparently Ben Affleck Didn't Think Anyone Would Notice If He Lifted The Script From Mighty Ducks To Make A Basketball Movie

WOW! Compelling trailer for the latest Ben Affleck project, “The Way Back”. A former standout athlete, turned alcoholic gets thrust into a coaching job he didn’t want. He leads a group of kids who haven’t had any success and turns them into a winner. And even though the coach led a group of rag tag kids to prominence, it’s safe to say that the coach learned more from the kids than they learned from him!

Gee, where have I seen that before?

If Affleck fucks the mother of one of his players then this is straight up plagiarism. I mean there’s even a Charlie Conway-esque character that Affleck has a heart-to-heart with. How is this allowed? It’s one thing if you try to remake and modernize a movie. Studios do that all the time. Affleck and Netflix are acting like he didn’t get high one night, fall asleep with FreeForm on his tv and wake up with a great “idea” for a movie. The only thing that is left up to debate is if the Affleck character can be a bigger scumbag than Gordon Bombay. That is a tall task. Probably impossible.

PS: Reminder…Bombay is the worst coach whoever lived
