Storyline

In Urbania, Ohio, snobby ex-football star Kevin O'Shea conducts try-outs for the town's Peewee football team, the Urbania Cowboys, which will compete for a chance at the state Peewee football playoffs. Kevin slights his younger brother Danny O'Shea by rejecting Danny's daughter Becky "Icebox" O'Shea, who is a good player. Kevin rejected her simply because she's a girl. Becky and some of her friends, boys who were also rejected, get the idea to start up their own team, to be coached by Danny. After Kevin tries to put a stop to that plan, Danny gets Kevin to agree to a game to decide which team will represent Urbania, because each town is allowed only one team. Danny and Becky scour the town in search of willing players, and they gather a crew of kids who have limited skills and no team spirit. They luck out when Becky discovers Junior Floyd expertly passing rolls of toilet paper right into a shopping cart at the supermarket, as though he's passing a football. With Becky and Junior on ...

Great for the kids..
31 October 2002 | by johnmeechumSee all my reviews

I adore this movie and I have it on VHS. I do wish they could put it on DVD. It's about football more like a pint size Dallas Cowboys. They do have guest appearance from Mr. Madden and Emmitt Smith. It's so funny and great for a family movie. No voilence except the roughness of the players. I give it a thumbs up. The cast are wonderful. It's a family movie.
