Luke Wilson, Vinessa Shaw, Wayne Knight, Jake Austin Walker, Robert Duvall and Martin Sheen star in director Ty Roberts’ adaptation of Jim Dent’s 2008 nonfiction book of the same name. This sports drama fictionalizes the inspiring story of the Mighty Mites: a formidable football team that consisted of scrawny orphans from Fort Worth, Texas. National glory was attained through their coach Rusty Russell (an orphan himself), who taught them the innovative techniques that made up for their relative lack of brawn.~Augustine Chay

If you haven't read the book (same title) you will like the film. If you have read the book you will be disappointed. READ THE BOOK which highlights the players throughout. The film highlights the coach. Which was the producers choice to do so - BUT - the Book was Sooo much better.
