Storyline

Jenny, a small girl with glasses, raised by her grandparents, narrates the championship soccer game between her team, the Cleats of Imminent Doom, and the reigning champions, the Black Widow Princesses. We meet Jenny's team and Coach Bob, who's coached all five of his daughters' teams and wants to win one trophy. We meet the Black Widows, coached by an Italian soccer legend. The Widows take an early lead, mostly because the Cleats' goalie, Summer, is hapless and in love. Then, things start looking up, and it may come down to Abby, the Cleats' best player whose father is her loudest fan. Kids, parents, and sports: imminent doom indeed.

I loved it
30 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

I'm a 52-year-old soccer dad who has chased my daughter all over the west for the past 15 years watching soccer games. I was watching IFC at about 2am and came across "cleats". I laughed myself silly. The caricatures are more real than not. I've never coached the game, and still don't understand offsides, but I am an ardent observer of both parents and players. The mentality exhibited by some of the characters shows that the writer has had similar experiences along the sidelines. I also liked the jab at the elitism that accompanies the game. The weak and less-talented are weeded out. Anyway, what a great little film. Any soccer parent will relate.
