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. After Kevin tries to put a stop to that plan, Danny gets Kevin to agree to a game to decide which team will represent Urbania, because each town is allowed only one team. Danny and Becky scour the town in search of willing players, and they gather a crew of kids who have limited skills and no team spirit. They luck out when Becky discovers Junior Floyd expertly passing rolls of toilet paper right into a shopping cart at the supermarket, as though he's passing a football. With Becky and Junior on ...

A Must See
24 August 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This movie is adorable for adults and kids alike. The plot is cute and funny. The lines are new and fresh. All the actors did a great job and a credit to their profession.

The idea of a girl being better than a boy is not far fetched, but new to most. They may take a little poetic licence with some of the scenes, but only to enhance the storyline.

For those who are looking for realism in a bunch of misfit kids, i would also point out the movie Goonies and the classic it became, speaking to those who were less than perfect as children.

The movie will delight and is worth the time to see.
