Movie Reviews

Solidly grounded
Craig Yager | Boulder, Colorado | 09/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is solidly grounded in the story of a real coach and a real team. At the end of the movie, the actual person who inspired the film is shown being showered with the devotion of his players decades after they were on the basketball court together. Donovan, Mathis, and the young women who play ball are entertaining as well as in touch with the heart of this true story. Well-worth the purchase price."
Based on a true story
Karen Potts | Lake Jackson, Texas | 01/04/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A young man shows up at a small-town Oklahoma high school, expecting to coach the boys' basketball team. Instead, he is informed that he will be coaching the girls' team. The girls' team has never done well in this town, but the new coach decides that he is going to treat them as if they are boys. That plan comes under some fire from his wife, but eventually the coach gets it right and the girls begin to win some games. This is an inspiring story of a man who thinks that girls deserve the same opportunities to play sports and to be successful at it as boys do. Unfortunately, not everyone in the small Oklahoma town agrees with him, but that just makes the story more interesting. This is an enjoyable and inspiring movie."

"My husband and I both enjoyed the wholesomeness of the movie. There was no swearing, no sex scenes, no violence, just good family teaching; do not give up; give your best always. My son, Scott, played the reporter wearing the yellow tie and grey sport jacket in the last game scene."
