This is a great movie. The movie is based on a true story and very inspirational. The producer knew the original events personally, growing up around them, creating authenticity. Many of the original athletes and coaches were interviewed, increasing credibility. Original footage of the team's games is seen in the credits and DVD extras, which is a fun flashback.
This is a sports movie and for once the actors actually know how to play the sport. The games are believable, because they are real.
The movie has many inspirational elements, as mentioned by other reviewers. I highly recommend this movie.
Acting was great and you actually get to know the participants as you watch the film--real theater, not just hollow entertainment. There is real drama, both in the lives of the participants and in the struggles of the small college.
