The Mighty Macs

It's a shame that The Mighty Macs didn't get a better distribution deal than it did, because it's a lot better than its dumping into direct-to-dvd purgatory would suggest. Its every narrative beat is telegraphed within the opening minutes, but acted out with conviction and elevated by a strong turn by Carla Gugino. What's most likely is that it was pigeonholed by distributors as a religious film, which is true and it isn't: while Macs doesn't make any excuses or apologies for its embracing of the institution of Catholic schools, it never lapses into mere proselytizing or reverence, but is rather energetic in its love of basketball.
