Storyline

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 ...

An old favorite
7 October 2007 | by (Flower Mound, Texas) – See all my reviews

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.
