General Gist: True Story of De Le Salle High School football team and their journey from a 151 winning streak with coach Bob Ladouceur.
I love a good movie about high school football. Of course it's even better if it's true. This movie was amazing. The movie didn't just follow the season of a high school team, but rather a coach and his endeavour to make high school football about something other than winning. I was impressed with all of the actors, Jim Caviezel did good, all the actors that played the high school kids did wonderful. I felt like I was watching the lives of real folks, (which is essence I was). There was a good message, great connection of characters, and I liked that at the end we got to see some real footage of the team and coach. All in all this was a winner for me. This one doesn't come out in theatres until Aug. 22 so mark your calendar!

Same goes for this sister. Even though I'm not a really huge sports fanatic, I do love a good sports movie. I love the inspiration and talent and competitiveness. This one had a few more relationship elements rather than just a straight up sports angle which I liked. I also loved that it was a true story. Makes it that much more exciting. The acting was great so not much to complain about there. This would be a great one to take your hubby to.
