Movie Info

A 15-year-old soccer sensation who's well on her way to joining the U.S. National Team discovers that there is more to life than scoring the next big goal in this sports-themed comedy for the whole family. Ever since Sara Davis (Leah Pipes) was a young girl, her soccer fanatic father has pushed her to do her very best on the field. When word gets out that the National Development Team has found out about Sara and is sending a scout to witness her incredible talent firsthand, it appears that if all of her rigorous training has finally paid off. But Sara's best friend, Tutti, thinks her athletic pal needs to get off of the field and into the real world for a change. It's a whole new ballgame when you're not leading your team to victory in the big game, though, and now, as Sara begins to branch out and experience everything from the wonders of chemistry to the stress of prom night, each new day brings a whole new surprise for the girl whose previous short-sightedness had prevented her from seeing beyond the bleachers.more

Teen girl soccer tale has more heart than plot.

I can't imagine the film without Pipes, and her work does wonders elevating this material beyond familiar and potentially repellent territory.

Audience Reviews for Her Best Move


I really enjoyed this movie about a girl trying to decide what she wants to do with her life insted of just doing what he dad wants her to do. I thought the acting was pretty good. Not a movie for everybody, but I really enjoyed it.

Sara (Leah Pipes, Pixel Perfect) is a 15 year-old soccer phenomenon staring down an opportunity to try out for the U.S. National Team. Caught between what her domineering coach father (Scott Patterson, Gilmore Girls) wants for her future, and her newfound desire to actually enjoy being a love-struck, relaxed teenager, Sara has to find her priorities in life quickly before important decisions are made for her. Pipes reads the role with such a true feeling of swirling self-conscious butterflies that "Moves" comes off as a teenager documentary at certain pivotal moments. Pipes is terrific at demonstrating the dangerous push and pull of parental expectation vs. the desires of the newly engorged teen heart. Lalaine, best known as Duff's best friend on "Lizzie McGuire" should attract tween fans, while Patterson, who seems to be perfecting his wildly unlikable, but totally lovable "Gilmore Girls" persona here, will bring in the older teens. The humor here is a kind, gentle, type, with no juvenile gross-outs or self-aware pop culture references. Fortunately, the movie really shines when it makes with the soccer action. Sara and all the other girls have a seemingly endless supply of cool moves to make during the game. See them sneak the ball around opponents, fake out goalies, and do this thing where they do a 360 degree spin around the ball while running with it. Her Best Move deserves credit for chasing the elusive teen girl market, and for largely succeeding in its efforts.
