I think that Hooisers is a great movie for every sports lover and team. The story tells of a banned college coach since served in the Navy for the past 10 years. When his old friend offers him a job as basketball coach of the Hickory Huskers, many of the townspeople critize his new ways of coaching. I loved the effect of Jimmy Chitwood's decision to play basketball after the father-like figure of his former coach dies, in order save Coach Dale's job. The only issues I have for it are the Alcohol refrences, profanity, and violence. The assistant basketball coach, Shooter, has an alcohol addiction which becomes a issue for the team, and one of its key players. Like most sports movies, motivated and angry coaches can throw out profanity when upset about a decision. There are several fights withen the movie and the coach was fired from is old position because of his striking a athlete on his college team. Overall, I thought it was a great movie for older children and adults.
