Shouldn’t have been rated PG

I was shocked this was rated PG. While is was a nice story, there was a surprising amount of cursing, including use of the n-word. My 7-year-old is sports movie obsessed, but this one wasn’t a good choice for him.

Is It Any Good?

Terrence Howard is an actor of such gravitas that he lends a powerful authenticity to every role he plays. Which is lucky for Pride. As Coach Ellis, Howard saves an otherwise formulaic story (based on real events, no less) from turning into another trite sports drama. Anyone who's seen an inspiring sports movie can guess what happens when the Philly kids train hard, swim fast, and land at a national competition. But even knowing the outcome, viewers can't help but cheer for the underdogs' Pride.
