Storyline

United States, 1964. Bobbie Dean is a boyish girl who has an extraordinary talent for basketball. Because she's a girl, Bobbie is limited in her playing. She can only compete in girl's basketball, that has restricted rules and is hardly taken serious by anyone. When Bobbie is helping her father making a delivery, some boys are playing ball. They assume she is a boy and when they see her play they want her on their college team. But when Bobbie's secret eventually gets out, there are people who are willing to use any means necessary to ensure she never touches a ball in man's basketball again. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Awesome Movie
7 October 2005 | by (Kansas) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. It helps people look at the oppression put on others because of gender. I thought the movie was of HIGH "Hollywood" type quality and would pay money to see this type of movie in theaters. It also shows perseverance and how to handle people who tell you NO! This is a GREAT family movie and most of my family has seen it and loves it. The story starts out as a young middle school aged girl who tries to get into the school basketball program, but finds resistance because it is said to be a "Man's" sport. It shows the struggles of the parents, the young girl "Bobbie Dean", the school officials, and the boys at the school and on other teams. I especially like how the parents play a supportive role. They are willing to totally support their daughter through this hard and sometimes embarrassing time.
