Before this movie was released, The Sandlot and The Mighty Ducks had already been released. Two good Disney movies dealing with kids and sports. The way I saw it, The Big Green was just another attempt to cash in on that trend. Sadly it failed.

But if you must watch a kids soccer movie, instead watch Rodney Dangerfield's "Ladybugs." Alot more enjoyable plus the kids should like that one. I did when I was kid.
