I'm wondering if the the common sense review person actually watched the movie. The story is really a love story. A love story about 2 dogs and 2 teenagers. It is fine, but there is not as much soccer or action as we would have hoped. Much more love, love, love. It think the target of this movie is a girl for sure probably around 7-8, who is interested in romance. There is the "girl power" theme heavily at the end with professional world cup players. My 2 boys enjoyed it (ages 3 and 6) but it was different than we thought it would be.
It is fine for younger kids like 3-5, but not really interesting for them.
There is also a kidnapping scene of the puppies of the dogs. It isn't horribly scary, but it did raise alarm in the kids. It came from no where and for no reason. While there isn't a true "bad guy" that they are fighting through the movie, there are dog catchers at the end come and take the puppies for no apparent reason or build up (which makes it less scary). The situation is resolved, however, in a funny manner without violence
