One of the better "based on a true story" sport movie
This is a great family movie and a great movie for teachers to see. It
especially hits home for teachers, who are of course, coaches, but also
those classroom teachers who have the same relational interactions as
coaches like choir teachers (me), band directors, and the like.
The casting was excellent. I did not feel that I was watching actors,
but actual people. Bruce Dern did his role so well, you really despised
him. (I didn't realize he was THAT old already. I guess I'M that old
already!) The girls were believable, the coach was well acted, the wife
was a natural pairing for him--all very good acting. I, like you, can't
stand cheesy "docudramas." You will want to watch the "making of"
special features. You will have a pleasant surprise about the winning
shot in the movie.
I highly, highly, recommend this movie. I have been encouraging my
colleagues and all my students to rent it..

As far as the acting, they were pretty good but young actress Anne stood out- perhaps because of the deep personal meaning this movie had for her (she is a former player- coached by her dad- sis also former player coached by dad- AND mom and grammama both played!!).
winb22 watch Mrs. Doubtfire movie
Oklahoma Great dancing and music. Shirley Jones and Gordon MacRea have great chemistry as actors and singers. And Rod Steiger what a villain he portrays. Rogers and Hammerstein at their best. Five stars. I also recommend Carousel with Shirley and Gordon. A different story but great songs..

Oklahoma Great dancing and music. Shirley Jones and Gordon MacRea have great chemistry as actors and singers. And Rod Steiger what a villain he portrays. Rogers and Hammerstein at their best. Five stars. I also recommend Carousel with Shirley and Gordon. A different story but great songs. Hoosiers Great inspirational movie about basketball in Indiana in the 50's. Gene Hackman is the frustrated coach on his last chance to coach boys basketball. He is not accecpted as the coach until the towns star player who at first did not want to play agrees to play for him. With the help of Dennis Hopper as his fragile alchoholic assistant, the coaches and boys grow to count on each other and blossom as a very good team. Their journey to the state championship of Indiana against a much bigger and polished team is a tremendously inspirational story. Five stars. ......winston.

Believe In Me .
The heart of a game .
I think this movie is original This movie has a important message: If you work hard, you get all your goals.
I heard this movie was a reallly good one! .
I was in this movie and highly disappointed
I was an un-credited extra in this movie, and although I was not in the
movie for professional reasons more to cure boredom I was extremely
disappointed. This movie not only did not take into account the half
court 3 on 3 rules of the sixties but also the hair and costuming was
more of the 50's than the 60's. I myself refuse to watch the movie
after being involved in a good portion of the filming and have advised
others not to watch it do to the behavior of a certain actress that I
now refuse to watch anything that she is in, and the inaccuracy of the
story. In real life the girls did not win state but the town did pull
together to support the girls team. Which is what the director
portrayed to us was the point of the movie; obviously he changed his
angle during post production. This was not worth my time to be in it
let alone watching it, those are moments of my life I'm not planning on
