It just doesn’t matter if we win or we lose
This film will always hold a warm place in my heart. I remember it as being before Bill Murray hit the big time (with Ghostbusters et al), before he even left SNL if I recall correctly. It blends two familiar storylines -- a teenage boy learning to believe in himself, along with the underdog team beating the overhyped favorite. It shares some features with Revenge of the Nerds (less-advantaged weirdo kids from the low-rent camp get revenge on the rich kids at a rival camp). It kind of points toward the John Hughes type vehicles of the 80s, but it's a little less self-conscious. Bill Murray is wonderful, completely taking over the show in his now-familiar style. This movie offers us the great chant/cheer "It just doesn't matter! It just doesn't matter!"Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
