Ignore the low rating!.
27 November 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie doesn't do anything new. And yes,it is full of clichés. Who cares! People who love the genre will watch it anyways. This movie does what it aims for. And that is make you feel good. Nothing more nothing less. My only complaint is that it could have used more jokes. Keke Palmer as Jasmine is the first woman to take part in The Pop Warner Football Tournament. Surely they could have come up with more scenes to exploit this. Or at least show her struggle before being accepted as a team member of all boys. I also would have loved to learn more about Jasmin Plummer (Does she still play football?). Overall this movie is adequate and certainly not as bad as the low rating suggests.
