Goofs

In the first soccer game Matthew/Martha plays there are several full body shots of him running and kicking the ball and especially the shot of him kicking the ball into the net for a goal where you can see the face and it is obviously the stand in and not Jonathan Brandis. See more »

Quotes

Chester: [to the people that saw Matthew dressed like a girl punching a speed bag] She's in training. Friday night, she's an underdog.
Chester: [to Matthew] You gotta work on your jab, your hook, and your slip is showing. Come on, will ya? You keep this up, your next fight will be with me.

Dangerfield's foray into the teen comedy market
6 December 2012 | by (Naperville, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Rodney Dangerfield had at this point become known for playing sympathetic losers who go to outrageous lengths to climb the ladder of success. Here he is Chester Lee, a salesman with an understanding fiancée and a typical apathetic stepson. While trying to get a promotion, he somehow gets himself into coaching his bosses' championship soccer team, The Ladybugs. He accepts, merely on hearing the team's legacy. He soon finds out that all but one of the players is new to the team and know even less than he does. He then enlists the help of his stepson, a gifted soccer player, having him pose as a girl. The film is funny enough, as Dangerfield's wit carries it through. The b plot of the stepson's crush, who is also the bosses daughter,r is thrown in for teen appeal. This movie does not pretend to be anything more than a harmless farce, and is all the better for it.
