The Big Green
In this Disney comedy that bears a suspicious resemblance to The Mighty Ducks, the down-trodden cynical young misfits of a run-down Texas town, devastated by the closing of its one major industry, find renewed hope and spirit at the hands of a plucky British foreign-exchange teacher who introduces them to soccer. When British elementary school teacher Anna Montgomery arrives in the dusty town and first meets the depressed and frequently angry youths, she immediately knows she must do something to somehow make them feel better about themselves and so decides to enroll them into a soccer league. Naturally the kids are at first awful and are soundly pummeled during their first game. Fortunately, former high school football champ, Deputy Sheriff Tom Palmer decides to give the pretty and single Anna a helping hand, and between the two of them manage to whip the kids into shape so they can beat the arrogant state champion team, helmed by Palmer's old rival Jay Huffer. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    The Big Green is a nice family film about a bunch of kid's growing up in Texas in a very poor town. The new teacher and the local sherriff coach the kids in a newly formed soccer team. It is a fun film and my 7 year old soccer playing grand-daughter loved it!

    It's so cute, it was a childhood favorite of mine and now I get to share it with my own children! It's fun, action packed and teaches a good lesson; doesn't get much better than that!
