For kid and teen sports fans, this film fittingly scores with its theme about the task of team building. The Redeem Team's coach, Mike Krzyzewski, tells star NBA players who are now U.S. Olympic team members that they "have to give me the egos that you have in your current basketball teams, bring them to this team, and put it under one ego umbrella." They listen and learn to create camaraderie on and off the court. "There's no better feeling than winning the gold medal," reminds the coach of the team's goal. "It's your country. It's the world. It's the Olympics. There's no greater moment."

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.
