A very fun family movie for everyone
27 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

The Longshots was a great family movie. In my opinion it was one of the greatest sports movies. This was a movie the whole family can enjoy. It was not very long at all. So that was a good thing about the movie along with the acting. The movies story was explained very well. It had a very good story to it as well. It was very heartwarming and a harmless movie. It even had many fun laughs. The jokes were original and the movie had a lot of heart. I would go see this movie again. I think it was very fun and entertaining. Not to many family movies can top this one. Definitely a movie I recommend going to see. It was entertaining and not boring at all. It might even make you cry. Go see it and have a fun time watching a girl play football.
