Paul Michael Glaser and Dee (ET.) Wallace manage to make the familiar fresh in this comedy about a laid-off high school football coach whose wife takes on a summer job, forcing him to adopt her motherly and wifely chores. The role-reversal humor, if predictable, is warm and engaging, as are the performances.
