In Bobby Farrelly’s “Champions,” a remake of the 2018 Spanish film “Campeones,” the story centers on a typical plot found in many inspirational sports movies, where a coach seeking redemption leads a team of Disabled basketball players. However, the film falls short by using the players as mere tools for the coach’s redemption, neglecting their humanity. At the film’s outset, Harrelson’s Marcus is portrayed as an arrogant and combative character, lacking depth. In 2023, it becomes challenging to invest two hours in watching such a figure, despite Harrelson’s charm. Even the love interest, Alex (Kaitlin Olson), lacks well-rounded characterization, with poorly written lines that fail to showcase her true depth.
