Trivia

Goofs

During the first few plays of the State Championship, one of the Patriots passes is stolen and taken down the court. The player with the ball then lobs the ball to a player wearing a #22 jersey, who then dunks it. When the camera zooms in on the player the jersey number has changed to #21. See more »

Seemed like a lifetime movie
9 February 2016 | by sfp20See all my reviews

I didn't care for the movie. It seemed like a lifetime movie or something.

What kept going through my mind is if the coach actually cared about his team, he wouldn't have had issues with him players going elsewhere. If you had students that had potential, you're holding them back by having them play in a broken city where they won't get visibility.

As for the team building exercises and stuff like that, that was good. I could see focusing on basketball helping build a team and doing so could be a distraction that relieves some of the pressures of being in a destroyed city.
