This film has its heart in the right place but is just another mediocre teen-misfits-make-good movie. A real-life story of determination and courage turned into formulaic mush.

Feel good comedy-drama with a nice story and actors like Halle Berry and James Belushi in it! Story is is loosely based on the true story of the Konawaena High School Solar Car Team, which finished 18th in the 1990 World Solar Challenge and was written by Barry Morrow, who had shared the 1988 Academy Award for Writing Original Screenplay for Rain Man.

Of course, do not expect originality in this one like in The Rain Man... most of it is corny, using clichés and most of the time is very predictable! Still, you can enjoy the exciting spectacle of the race but the big positive for this movie is the attitude and the heart it has! If you want to teach your teenagers how to set aside their differences and insecurities to bond as a team - this is a right tool. This movie won't open your horizons or bring novelties but it's still uplifting experience.

Light entertainment with right message.

I just watched it lastnight and it was excellent. Great cast! Shows how minorities can come together and show that there is no real minorities in the world. Racing solar cars they built, nothing gets better....lol

The first movie ever saw with Halle Berry and she was fucking HOT back then.The movie isn't great, but the idea and the story are awesome.

Based on a true story, a group of high school kids build a solar powered car and enter a 2,000 mile championship race with it. Dull and completely lacking charisma, this film feels like an overstretched TV production destined to be forgotten.

A good movie about teamwork and good sportsmanship.
