Set in rural Ohio, the birthplace of football, UNDERDOGS is the story of a small-town high school football team destined to play their cross-town rival, a perennial powerhouse, while standing up for an entire community.
In shock and denial over his Marine father's death in battle, star lacrosse player Conor Sullivan, always a maverick and a hothead, starts acting out in self-destructive ways that have his mom, Claire, at her wit's end, but arduous training in a wilderness lacrosse camp under the tutelage of his dad's old combat buddy, Sgt. Major Duke Wayne, opens Conor's eyes to the true meaning of maturity, sportsmanship and manhood. Written by

This is a story about the guy I fell for, but to really understand why, you have to know a little bit about the game he loves. The game's been played by Native Americans for centuries.

Hmmmm. Well I love Lacrosse so that was my only reason for not turning it off after 10mins. And this is the only lax film out at the moment unfortunately.
Just very cliché and unfortunate plot. hard to tell how bad the acting is due to the terrible screenplay. This film has almost no worth. The depiction of lacrosse was way off. I don't even think that adaptive purposes for film could pass as an excuse. They're all scrubs. there is hitting/checking in lacrosse but its far more skilled and brutal than the bs in this.
I don't really know what else to say. This is basically a film designed for twilight fans with a bit of lacrosse riding on the side, and I struggle to even call it lacrosse. This movie feels like it was made by a bunch of high school kids with some fancy equipment. Its not even
really funny bad... just bad
I'll be waiting for crooked arrows, can't be worse than this.
