This movie opens in Theatre's in October 21, 2011
I was asked to review this movie and give it an honest review.
A little about the movie:
In the lead up to this historical season, major universities are preparing their game plans to win that first title. Meanwhile a tiny all-women's Catholic college in Philadelphia has a more modest goal: find a coach before the season begins. Providentially, Cathy Rush is about to find Immaculata College.
Recently married, Cathy is dealing with the aftermath of a truncated playing career. While cultural norms would have her staying at home, she's willing to do the hard work necessary to help her new team reach their goals—or perhaps she's just trying to achieve her unfulfilled dreams through them.
From the beginning, her challenges are as imposing as the big-school teams Immaculata will face on the court. Cathy learns there is no gymnasium on campus, she receives little support from the school's Mother Superior, and the school is in dire financial straits. To top it off, she may not even have enough players to field a team!
While it appears the Macs don't have a prayer, all hope is not lost. With the help of Sister Sunday—a spunky assistant coach—and the support of a booster club of elderly nuns, Coach Rush creates a new game plan that just might bring the team—and the school—together.
Will this pioneer buck cultural norms and spur her rag-tag team to unexpected heights? Or will her hard-driving ways create a wedge between the coach and everyone around her? One thing's for certain: there's never been anyone like Cathy Rush at Immaculata!
Things I appreciate about this Movie:
No foul language
Did not make Nuns look Bad.
The one player who's family was not a well to do family was very appreciative and respectful to others as well as her mother.
My Personal Opinion about this movie:
There was several things in this movie that I did not appreciate.
There were several times where drinking took place. One time was with the coach and her assistant (a nun) in a bar drinking beers. There was also another time where the coach celebrated with her husband with a drink.
As well as there were references of the Holy Mother playing poker.
There was one time where the asst coach a Nun lied to help the coach keep her job.
There were several comments of Religions References in this movie that were not appreciated and were offencive to me.
My husband said this movie should have been rated PG not G.
I think there is a lot of things in this movie that are not good examples to small children and we try to be very careful what things we allow my children to be influenced by.
