Saddest movie of the year
20 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Terrible the way this movie demonized Frank. This guy funds a little league soccer team and time after time lets the dead-beat coach off the hook on his re-payment. He even takes his neighbors son Christian to soccer practice when his mom isn't available. Then when Christians mother gets into a car crash, because she was recklessly driving while on the cell phone, Frank takes in her son and lets him live with his family. Frank gets Christian a pair of soccer shoes that turn out to be magic. Christian realizes this but tries to keep it a secret so he can cheat his way to the top of the league. When Frank realizes this he tries to take his shoes away to make him play a fair game but always gets caught. When the big championship game comes around, Frank has had enough and decides to lock Christian in his room in an attempt to preserve the integrity of the game. Obviously the team isn't doing so well without Christian and his cheater cleats. Christian manages to break out of his room and get a ride to the game but he realizes his shoes are missing and he's going to have to play with a legit pair for once. He actually manages to make the game winning goal without cheating! Frank being the good guy that he is didn't want to rat out Christian, so he personally congratulates him (on finally playing fair) and gets punched in the face by the mother! So now the dead-beat coach finally has enough money to pay back Frank because they won the championship. No helping Frank off the ground after being assaulted, no 'thank you' he just cuts a check and throws it on his chest like a dirty whore. This movie should have been called Little Shitty Cheater Shoes.
