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.

Super Fun Film

Great film. Team down on their luck strive to regain their competitive edge. Great film for parents to show their child what can be achieved by hard work and a strong team ethic. Very nice film but be prepared to have some tissues with you for the tear jerky moments.

Loved it, tears and all!

This is an intense movie and all 3 moms in our group cried almost the entire time. Although the five 12-year-olds only got sad a bit, no tears. Our kids are volleyball players so that made the movie probably even better for us, but it still is a good movie for everyone. Actually anyone with kids in sports would benefit from and enjoy this movie.
