Storyline

Jerry Stanton's pride and joy is successfully coaching the Hurricanes, one of the six competing school soccer teams, sponsored by his employer's sports equipment shop. When the competition goes co-ed, he panics, but relies on Samantha 'Sam', the tomcat among his twin daughters, as not-disastrous girl in his team. Alas, partially due to wife Denise, a psychologist, the team-picking goes pear-shaped, the Hurricanes get stuck with fashionista twin Emma. So he eagerly accepts when the sisters spontaneously suggests secretively trading places, but Denise and attractive boys compromise keeping the charade up. Written by KGF Vissers

It is too bad this was not at theaters
14 April 2000 | by bl29x5See all my reviews

This movie exceeds any limit or bounds of imaginative writing. I should say that whatever method of putting this on the silver screen where it belongs is well worth it. This film is truly breathtaking, and an Oscar caliber performance by both sisters as they struggle in a world of peewee sports and puberty. The cinematography was captivating to say the least!
