In Urbania, Ohio, snobby ex-football star Kevin O'Shea conducts try-outs for the town's Peewee football team, the Urbania Cowboys, which will compete for a chance at the state Peewee football playoffs. Kevin slights his younger brother Danny O'Shea by rejecting Danny's daughter Becky "Icebox" O'Shea, who is a good player. Kevin rejected her simply because she's a girl. Becky and some of her friends, boys who were also rejected, get the idea to start up their own team, to be coached by Danny.

I've seen a lot of sports movies since I've lived on this planet, and this just happens to be one of my favorites.
Like I've said in one of my other reviews, I don't really like football, but this is an instant classic. I can say this because I saw this when I was at least 8 or 9 years old and loved it! There are many memorable moments in the movie, and everyone from kids to adults can enjoy this.
The only complaint I have is that they show it on ABC Family sometimes, and for some reason, they edit a lot of it out... and some of the edits actually make the movie work... if you can, stay away from that version.
Aside from that, this is a 10 out of 10.
