Movie Info

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

Exactly what you'd expect from a kid's soccer flick: lots of balls being kicked.

Audience Reviews for The Big Green

Even as a kid I knew this film was cliched and derivative. I happened to see it again the other day, and wow, it's worse than I remember. Sure, I did chuckle a few times, but man, the actng really is bad, and not just from the kids. It's a feel good story,but damn, it just offers nothing new and seems kind pointless.

Honestly, this film had more going for it than it led on, but sadly it had to settle for the cliched Mighty Ducks/Sandlot story that we've all seen before. I have to give this more credit than most of these 90s quick buck kids sports films though, it wanted to tackle so many issues. It had divorce, immigration, broken children, a lot of things that back then werent in many films. The downside is it's only glossed over and it just fits the story they want to tell. But viewed with the right lens, this is an okay flick you'll like fine.
