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.

I recently bought this movie for my 3 year old broother on d.v.d. I got it for him because he says he wants to play soccer when he gets older. But something is wrong with the d.v.d. Alll it had was the 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio {the Disney pan & scan t.v. version is simply missing way too much!} But that was all the first d.v.d. had to offer that was worth anything. So if any of you own this movie on v.h.s. , stick with the v.h.s. untill Disney comes out with a better version of the d.v.d.

This movie was very good actually. I bought it on DVD for my 3 1/2 year old brother. The DVD has no features to offer. For any of you who always wanted this movie as your 1st DVD , Go ahead and buy it but beaware that there's no extras , no trailers nothing but pan and scan widescreen, only. But if your looking for it just to watch , you may consider buying the VHS version. It's Better
