Storyline

Jenny, a small girl with glasses, raised by her grandparents, narrates the championship soccer game between her team, the Cleats of Imminent Doom, and the reigning champions, the Black Widow Princesses. We meet Jenny's team and Coach Bob, who's coached all five of his daughters' teams and wants to win one trophy. We meet the Black Widows, coached by an Italian soccer legend. The Widows take an early lead, mostly because the Cleats' goalie, Summer, is hapless and in love. Then, things start looking up, and it may come down to Abby, the Cleats' best player whose father is her loudest fan. Kids, parents, and sports: imminent doom indeed.

Funny, Irreverent, Sweet
26 June 2005 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

I saw this on IFC's short film showcase and loved it from the moment it started. It reminds me of the TV show, "The Adventures of Pete & Pete," both in its tone and in its ability to be sweet without compromising itself. I'm a firm believer in not predisposing people who might see something by telling too much about the plot so I'll not spill any beans about that. I will only say that if you can suspend your sense of reality and take this on its own terms (something important for enjoying "Pete & Pete, by the way), you'll be richly rewarded.

By this point, I'm just stretching because I have to write one more line for this to be posted. Thank you for reading.
