THE BIG GREEN (1995)

The new teacher from England is determined to raise the self-esteem of a group of misfit students as well as their low test scores by teaching them soccer. Eventually, the students begin to believe in themselves and they end up becoming a pretty good team. But will the beat the best team in town? The movie is fun enough. It’s good to see once and we’re OK if we had to watch it again. But it doesn’t have as much substance as Sandlot even if two actors from that movie are in this tooThe kid characters aren’t as memorable or unique. I don’t think I could tell you any of their names. This is one that kids will enjoy enough and adults could last through at least one watch.
