  • More in the tone of the big screen "Friday Night Lights" than "Rudy" or "The Blind Side," it succeeds as mainstream entertainment without relying on a conventional storybook framework. show more

  • The script depends entirely too much on a succession of reporters, announcers, and spectators to provide context and detail in clunky, implausible dialogue. show more

  • “Hoosiers” this ain’t. The redemptive final game has some nice plays and bone-crunching sound effects, but no grit. Ultimately, it’s a ho-hum, bromide-filled production undeserving of a victory dance. show more

    Fabulous take on a true story. Every coach should insist that his team see this movie. Great for gals (a bit of a tear-jerker). Great for guys (lots of football action). A must-see for families with kids from 12 up.

    I loved this movie. It was full of real life inspiration!!! Life's ups and down's. I felt right there in the game, right there in his marriage and the scene with the boy and his father- epic. This movie is not only inspiring it is based on boys and men who gave their time and talent to help each other, stand by each other, play a game and share each others life's. This movie was worth seeing and buying the DVD to watch over and over again. The actors did a great job!! To all the people this movie is based on- Thank you for showing your community that indeed we are stronger as a team. God Bless each and every one of you!!5 stars!!
