From the director of Angels in the Outfield comes the incredible true story of the underdog foreign Little League team who inspired two nations. Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek) heads an all-star line-up of some of Hollywood's brightest young stars as Cesar, who returns to his native Monterey, Mexico after his major league career is cut short. Moises Arias (Hannah Montana), Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place) and Ryan Ochoa (iCarly) costar as impoverished baseball-loving kids who recruit him to coach their rag-tag team. Together, they beat the odds and overcome hardships and bigotry to compete in the 1957 Little League World Series. Screen favorites Cheech Marin (Spy Kids), Lou Gossett Jr. (Iron Eagle), Bruce McGill (Animal House), Emilie de Ravin (Lost) and David Koechner (Anchorman) are featured in this uplifting story in the winning tradition of Hoosiers that Boxoffice magazine cheered as "inspiring, richly entertaining, heartfelt...a perfect family movie."

A decent sports movie for kids. The boys in the movie really had to work hard for what they achieved - walking 10 miles to their first little league game, so you can't help be happy when they win, even if you are not surprised. The movie doesn't shy way from the racist attitudes that existed in America at the time. My son liked that it was based on a true story, and liked that there where clips from the original event worked into the movie.

Not a great movie by any standards but it's a great story with a few good moments. I think Clifton Collins Jr. and Cheech Marin make the film even though the kids should be the focus. Some better child actors and a better script and this would be a classic of child sports movies. There is a book by W. William Winokur.

It's one of the best movies that I've watched. It's appropriate for the whole family, inspiring and there are so many angles to the movie. It makes a great gift for anyone who values a heart warming story. It serves to motivate one to overcome obstacles both external and internal.It's a welcome and refreshing contrast to movies of a violent depraved theme.
