(5-Okay Film)

Fun. Clumsy. Mediocre.

Into the miserable, poverty-ridden town of Elma, Texas, where the children are separated into two classes-younger and older-steps Ms. Anna Montgomery to teach the older group. Though young and beautiful, Ms. Montgomery doesn’t have much luck in connecting with the students until she decides to put together a soccer team with the help of local Sheriff Tom Palmer (Guttenberg). It’s a sports film for kids, likely inspired by the insanely popular Mighty Ducks series. The formula is the same and there’s plenty of charm in this film and a few creative touches, but it’s not a transcendent kids’ movie. It’s perfectly fine and likely entertaining for children but just mediocre seen objectively.
