true story?
11 December 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

yup, i'd say this is a decent family movie. good for teaching' kids this and that. but personally, i just think this movie is really hard to believe. upon finished watching', the only thought in my head was "this cannot be real". it's so full of it it was annoying. "there could exist a team so bad it could never win a match then only with this girl it won its way to the national final match?" "if this team result was that terrible why the previous coach lasted for years?" "ok, a girl who never touched football before can play better than all the boys her age just after 2 weeks of training". oh, come on. other parts of the movie are good, but since the main athletic side of the story is not at all persuasive i felt like i wasted my time watching' it. acting was not especially good, but not bad.
