Film reviews are subjective. I tend to rate films not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.
The Longshots (2008)
Rated PG. Comedy/Drama, Black Actors, Biography, Family Film
Description (from Netflix): When an 11-year-old girl becomes Pop Warner football’s first female quarterback, she raises eyebrows—till she takes her team to the brink of glory.
My thoughts: That 11-year-old girl is Jasmine Plummer, and this movie is based on her true story.
Yes, this comedy sports drama has all the predictability and appropriately corny moments full of cheering and big bursts of music to punctuate the big bursts of triumph.
It’s also chuckle-worthy, sometimes a little irreverent, and altogether a piece of inspiring, feel-good entertainment. It’s funny I’d never heard of this flick until I watched it…
