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 ...

Trivia

Duwayne Dunham was removed as director after shooting more than two thirds of the film. He fell behind during the football game sequences. Brian Levant was brought in for the last few weeks to finish the football sequences, using Rexford L. Metz as his cinematographer. Duwayne Dunham was retained to supervise the editing at the same time, however, which he saw through to completion. See more »

slightly more interesting than most of these sorts of movies
19 April 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Mostly, "Little Giants" is the average movie in which against all odds a ragtag team takes on the big guys (others in this vein include "The Mighty Ducks" and "The Big Green"). But I thought that in the end, it did come out slightly more interesting than the average such flick (maybe because of what happens at the very end). Maybe Rick Moranis ("Ghostbusters") and Ed O'Neill ("Married...with Children") in the roles improve the quality.

You can probably guess which scenes were my favorites when I was ten years old. Nowadays, I wouldn't go out of my way to watch this movie. One of the reasons that the Irish movie "The War of the Buttons" was so good is that the two sides were equally matched. Anyway, OK in a pinch.
