I love this story. It's the same story as other movies where the teens resist their parents wishes in order to fullfell their own person dreams. Everything turns our well in the end. The story is the same, the story telling is different and first rate. I highly recommend the movie. Unfortunately, the disk can not be played in the United States which is where I live. I ordered it from a US company who shipped the disk from a US location, but the manufacturers make disks that can played only in certain parts of the globe and this disk could not be played in the US. I suspect its a greed issue. The seller refunded my money without hesitation. I had no problem with the return process. I am please with the return process. I am not please with the artificial segragation the manufacturers have imposed and I will not buy ANY Blu-Ray in the future untill there is but one format.
I originally saw this movie when my daughter was born nearly 16 years ago (crazy how time flies!!), and it is such an AWESOME empowerment movie for women - it's great to be sexy AND strong, have morals and beliefs, and fight for our ability to be ourselves. My youngest son just saw this a couple weeks ago, due to wanting to watch a "sport" movie - we've watched it several times since :) Btw, the soundtrack is AWESOME (sorry, know I use this a great deal!), but it's the perfect mix of cultures.
I saw this film in the cinema way back when and I loved it then and I love it now. I know a lot of it is cliché but still worth watching. Very girl positive, very funny, very good characters, just all out fun film.
My only negative issue in this film was the cheesy, "locker room" scenes. Seemed very out of place in this girl positive film. Felt kind of creepy, peeping Tom-ish and absolutely not necessary in this film but other than that great flick.
Plot wise, story of two young women (teens) who play football and would like to one day go to play professionally. Both of them of have separate family, personal and cultural obstacles to get over to see their dream through.
For those who like Parminder Nagra (ER) and/or Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) they are both in this film and are wonderful.
Great film to watch with your teenage daughter.
