Highly enjoyed ~ nice family movie!
10 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie the Quarterback Princess is surly a classic, much inspiration for our younger youth and parents alike. You will leave this film with the "I can do anything attitude:)" Having 3 girls of my own, this was one we'll enjoy watching over & over! Who knows, I just may have the next "Quarterback Princess" *smiles* Helen Hunt did an awesome job portraying a high school teen surviving the trials and errors of being the odd "woman out", and overcoming with a winning finish by playing ball and holding her own when it came to the nay sayers of the town. This is a win-win movie that I feel anyone would truly enjoy with family or friends.
