sweet movie

Very inspiring movie. Had some funny parts as well. Great movie to watch sith your kids so they may learn a very important lesson about gamemanship.

Fantastic Family Film

I grew up watching this movie, and it remains one of my favorites to this day. I've played sports my whole life, and I credit this movie with teaching me what's really important in sports. (Spoilers: It's not about winning.) This movie is inspiring, heartwarming, funny, and great for the whole family. Anyone who enjoys sports or the Olympics should definitely watch this movie.


This is a great movie! It has a lot of comedic moments and is truly inspiring. It's very touching!

Family friendly, good message

Although this movie is for adults and is based on a true story, it's very family-friendly. There is not a single swear word in it and the message is positive and upbeat. Unlike most sports movies, this is not a "come from behind to be a big winner" story. The message is deeper (and more real) than that. And yet, it's also hilarious in parts and has great acting by all the cast. It's a favorite of my family and I think your family would like it too.


Loved this movie all growing up and I still love it.


This is a great movie. It's one you can watch again and again, even with your kids!


This movie is inspiring.


When this movie came out in 1993, I loved it.

Every time I have watched the movie since then... I have loved it. Heartwarming, funny, GREAT soundtrack, inspiring... It's got it all.
