The offbeat, fact-based saga is enlivened by the perfect balance of humor, emotion and insight and should be one of the true sleepers among fall box office releases.

While the film is cute and charming, it isn't without its copious cliches. All in all, it's pretty much as expected.

A cute, buoyant sports fantasy, jolted along by a reggae soundtrack and playfully acted by an appealing cast.
