This is a cliched, faith-based "comeback kid" sports movie with few surprises. Nothing is Impossible is best enjoyed by faith-based viewers looking for confirmation of their beliefs. The lead character, Scott, was a former high school basketball star who is now a janitor at said high school and also lives in a double-wide trailer. When the owner of the local pro basketball team (and Scott's high school sweetheart) decides to hold open tryouts for the team, well, it's safe to assume that Scott is going to try out and prove along the way the title of the movie.

There are too many cliched characters to list, including even the "drunken father" a la Dennis Hopper in Hoosiers. The story gets derailed from time to time to discuss Scripture, either in church or in Fellowship of Christian Athletes meetings, and it's quite heavy-handed. There are many better sports movies out there, no matter what you believe.
