Former gymnastics Bronze Medalist Hope Ann Greggory (Melissa Rauch) has been living off her celebrity status in her hometown of Amherst, Ohio, though she is reduced to going through the mail her mailman father delivers for spending money. When her former coach Pavleck (Christine Abrahamsen) suddenly commits suicide, a letter arrives addressed to Hope stating that if she can guide Pavleck's best student, a young gymnastics star named Maggie Townsend (Haley Lu Richardson) to the Olympics in Toronto, she will receive a $500,000 inheritance..
All of the eatery locations in the film are real places (Hastee Tastee, Quarry Cafe, Midway Mall food court). And while Hope's house is still standing (and remaining in its unique red, white and blue paint) on the small street of Brandt Ave., the building used for Pavleck's gym (once a pizza parlor) was demolished in 2016.

When Hope and Maggie are in the car for the first time, eating at a food stand, Hope Says "Always listen to Avril Lavigne..." but the CD shown is incorrect. It is actually Robyn's debut album "Robyn Is Here" which was released in 1997 while Avril Lavigne's debut CD "Let Go" was released in 2002. To further the time line, the songs "My Happy Ending" and "Freak Out" that are played in the movie, are from Avril Lavigne's second album "Under My Skin" which was released in 2004. See more »

Look, I never said that dirty dicks were the solution here. Why do you need all this money if I'm paying for the roof over your head?
