Storyline

Jerry Stanton's pride and joy is successfully coaching the Hurricanes, one of the six competing school soccer teams, sponsored by his employer's sports equipment shop. When the competition goes co-ed, he panics, but relies on Samantha 'Sam', the tomcat among his twin daughters, as not-disastrous girl in his team. Alas, partially due to wife Denise, a psychologist, the team-picking goes pear-shaped, the Hurricanes get stuck with fashionista twin Emma. So he eagerly accepts when the sisters spontaneously suggests secretively trading places, but Denise and attractive boys compromise keeping the charade up. Written by KGF Vissers

Predictable. Kids only.
12 November 2000 | by (Seattle, USA) – See all my reviews

Switching Goals is pure mindless entertainment. It is a movie made purely for Olsen fans only, since most football shots feature mostly them. Funny enough, even though the movie says that the football teams go co-ed, Mary-Kate and Ashley seem to be the only girls in their teams. It's weird how the entire film seems to be banking merely on the girls' presence. The storyline is rather predictable, and using the switching identity tactic in twins is seriously very boring. The only upside to Switching Goals however is that it makes very good family entertainment. Ok, make that families with very young kids.
