The Longshots DVD

I’m not a sports fan by an stretch of the term but I’ve always loved sports-type movies - The Replacements, Invincible, Remember the TItans, Hoosiers. So when I had the opportunity to review The Longshots, I knew I had to check it out.

From the product: “A rag-tag group of misfit kids were all the tine town of Minden had for a Pop Warner football team. That is, until Curtis Plummer (Ice Cube) came along. With a secret weapon in tow - his pigtail wearing niece Jasmine who is a natural quarterback - he will take the team from a group of clumsy goodfalls to a football powerhouse. Inspired by a true story.”

At first I thought this sounded like another “Bad News Bears” movie but with football instead of baseball. However, I was wrong. This movie was so much better. The acting, the storyline, the message was all first-rate and made for a great family movie.

I was concerned that there would be a lot of put-downs of a girl playing football but the movie focused on how this team’s newfound success had a positive impact on the small town. This is a great message to young girls who believe they can do anything they put their minds to.

    I’m not a great fan of sports movies in general, but I loved (and cried a lot) when I watched Remember The Titans with Denzel Washington!

    I’ve watched it a few times and every time I love it a bit more!
