Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Awesome movie for all! Must see!

So glad we didn’t listen to the review on this and watched it! Was very real to life, didn’t shield kids from hard things in life, but gave hope. Great sibling love and relationship. Showed sacrificial love, perseverance, hard work, forgiveness. Check this movie out!

A great inspirational sports-based AND faith-based movie!!

My husband and I and 5 of our 6 older kids (age 6-18) absolutely LOVED this movie! The bonus features and making of the movie were great as well. It was VERY inspirational, and is one of the few films I would actually want to own. It is especially appealing to kids and teens who have done sports in school. We are Catholic, and the Christian themes that appear in the movie were so appreciated. This was one of the few movies we have seen that did not have any inappropriate content, which is great for any age. Well done!
