Blends comedy, romance, and soccer footage.Written by
Sara (Leah Pipes) is 15 year old, obsessed with soccer, and is a top prospect. She is rejected for the National Team development squad at first but after an injury, they're looking for a replacement. Her dad (Scott Gordon-Patterson) is almost as obsessed although her mom (Lisa Darr) isn't as sure. The family life suffers. Her best friend Tutti (Lalaine) tries to get her back to normal life. And high school photographer Josh (Drew Tyler Bell) keeps hanging around the soccer field.
The production is pretty weak and so are the jokes. This starts off badly with the boys claiming that Leah Pipes is undateable. That's pushing it too far. The high school stuff is so high school. The fights and complications are all very lame. The puppy love has its charms. Leah Pipes is a perfectly nice actress. That plus the fact that the movie's heart is in the right place. It's not a complete waste of time.
