Trivia

Although this was a unique interpretation of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" at the time, it served as later inspiration for _She's The Man (2006)_, which heavily borrows elements from the movie: setting it in high school with teenagers, using a sport as the catalyst for the plot, having the Viola character disguise herself as her twin brother rather than a completely separate identity, having the Duke Orsino character provide lessons in exchange for help with courting the Olivia character, and flipping the perceived weakness of femininity in the original play into strong support of women competing equally alongside men.

To compete with the boys
25 September 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I'm all for modern day films that take plots from the classics and you don't get more classic than the Bard. If a film like Motocrossed will encourage young folks to check out 12th Night and the rest of the works of Master Will Shakespeare so much the better.

Motocrossed is the story the Carson Family who all enjoy the sport of Motorcycle racing including daughter Alana Austin. Her twin brother Trevor O'Brien is an up and coming young racer, but when he's injured and can't compete his twin sister takes so she can compete with the boys and show she has the right stuff for the support.

Austin does have her problems though, she has to win her parents and siblings over which also includes a most indiscreet little brother Scott Terra. Mother Mary-Margaret Humes gets on board as Austin appeals to the feminist side of her. It's father Timothy Carhart that's kept in the dark for most of the film.

It doesn't help that there's a champion Motocross rider in Riley Hill that she has an interest in that extends to more than sports. But being in male drag won't help her cause.

Motocrossed has some nice cinematography of the young folk doing their racing and it's fine family entertainment.
