The TV show that Wang is interviewed on throughout the movies is called "Eye on East Hills with Jon Howard." The actor playing Jon Howard bears a strong resemblance to Ron Howard, star of 'Happy Days'. See more »
I don't like sports movies, but this film was the compromise choice for our family, our 18-year-old son who doesn't want serious drama, my wife who doesn't want even a whiff of violence, and me who would normally watch Lars von Trier or a Russian documentary.
But the whole family found something to laugh out loud at. Parts followed the nauseatingly sweet pattern of a Disney sports movie, but other parts would NEVER have appeared in a Disney movie. Not that they were violent or inappropriate, but just off message. That made the film rewarding.
If you want to pass a few hours being mindlessly entertained, this movie is for you.
