Good. Finally something I didn’t hate. I’m a sucker for movies like this, Disney does a great job at tapping that potent appeal of the underdog in sports like it has in Invincible, Miracle, and The Rookie.
They take a true story and put in some real life angst to keep it from being unbelievable but also sprinkle a little fairy dust on it so it has that Disney happy ending. I did think the movie was going to be a little better than it actually was, but I still really liked it. This is a movie the whole family can watch and not a single foul word throughout. Good writing, acting, and cinematography. This is a good feel good movie that is definitely worth watching with the whole family. Hopefully we can string a few good ones together because that run I was on was painful.
