Good movie, Common Sense Media didn't quite cover this movie completely

I just watched this movie and it was great! It was very patriotic, and the US team focused on being a team rather than individual players. Overall it was very good movie. However, common sense media didn't clarify what language was used in the movie. Yes, there are derogatory racial slurs, but there are also common curse words too. H**l was used very often as well as d**n. One of the players at one point says the h word and the others joke about how he'll soon be using d**n. also, at one point, a** was used as well. Besides the language, this was a very appropriate movie for teenagers.

This title has:

Too much swearing
not rated for age

A Great Sports Movie

It tells many life lessons and connects to people through the world's favorite sport-soccer! It was a great family movie. I loved it.
