Rated 6/10. An above average feel-good movie. It's gets bogged down in personal stories sometimes, but overall, not bad.

It's a familiar plot which I have seen before, but the ending and the reveal of the real people that are portrayed in this film make it worthwhile.

Simple, light and straight forward. No bad guys other than an amateur bully, a bit too rosy and predictable for my taste but nice family movie.

This was an inspiring story of the underdog, for the team simply making the competition was a major achievement for the school and the students it was an inspiration of hope through courage, teamwork, perseverance and coaching. It was hilarious when the judges asked how much had the materials cost and the answer was 8, they though 8,000 but it was a rounded up to 800 dollars - more evidence that money does not buy you everything.

Beautiful family story and based on a true story, my son loved it.
