Funny spin on bigotry
27 March 2005 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Funny movie based on the life of a coach who adopts children of different backgrounds. At first, they adopt Freddie - a black kid, but Freddie gets so much perks for being a minority that they decide to adopt one more minority to teach him the world is not all about him. Enter Kwan - a Vietnamese girl with trauma caused by war and her pal - a native American boy. With 6 kids, a bigoted neighbor, a basketball coach with a less than stellar team - the mom's challenge is keeping the peace and making the children happy.

People have to think about when this movie was made and how they used humor to take a jab at bigotry.

Great job - Excellent cast!
