    It is not a masterful work of art. It is: funny, well acted, heart warming, enjoyable, for gals even more than guys with some brilliantly funny and sweet moments. My go to "make me feel good" movie.
  • Don’t believe Rotten Tomatoes

    By Hos Family
    This is the kind of movie that gets hammered on Rotten Tomatoes because it is formulaic. However, it is well executed and very funny. If you understand that this movie is going to be a light hearted “rag-tag team beats the odds” sports movie, and aren’t hoping for something with deep meaning, you will love it. A great flick that will make you laugh and happy at the end. Isn’t that what a 5-star movie is? 2 hours of great entertainment. Rent this movie, you will be happy with the purchase.
