"ALL-STARS" follows a girls' 10-year-old fastpitch softball team and their families through a recreation league season that culminates in the selection of the coveted 10-and-under All-Star team. Lance Grayden, a veteran coach who left the league years ago when his daughter moved to an elite softball club team, and then college, has returned to "give something back" to the community. He assumed he'd be coaching a 16-and-under team of seasoned and accomplished competitors, but instead is saddled with a 10-and-under team of inexperienced players. Not only is he forced to go back to the basics and teach the fundamentals of the game to the little girls, half of whom would rather be in the dugout eating snacks, but he also faces the greater challenge of riding herd over their over-eager, overly ambitious, and entirely delusional parents whose ridiculous behavior is more suited to five-year-olds than adults. Lance also faces a personal decision about whether it's more important to win at all...Written by
Outstanding representation of the lunacy that is girl's fast pitch softball. If you are involved in the sport of have ever been ( player or parent) you will see people you "know" in every character. As usual this group makes for a hysterical movie regardless of the topic, some newer faces in this one, and some we've seen for years. I watched the first time alone and had some serious laugh out loud, startle the dog moments. Second time with my 14u fast pitch kid. She loved it! "OMG, Mom, that is so my coach from last year!" " OMG mom, that is YOU!" ( didn't love that one...) Short but sweet summary, great movie for everyone...FABULOUS movie for fast pitch people. Enjoy!
