Editorial Reviews

Kathy (Janeane Garofalo), a suburban mom, signs her seven-year-old daughter up for club soccer thinking it will be a great change of pace from her own days of carpools, laundry, and household drudgery. With one stroke of the pen, Kathy finds herself thrust into the dog-eat-dog world of over-zealous hyper-competitive youth sports obsessed parents.

Coach Nick (Christopher Titus) in his relentless pursuit of team glory, divides the young players by ability, is worshipped by all the parents. The stakes get higher and higher as the team makes its way to the State Championship Cup Semi-Finals. Tensions are high. Adult tempers flare. What happens during the explosive final game shocks everyone.

I was lucky enough to see a preview of this very funny relevant movie sponsored by a local soccer club. It is a must see for all parents involved in organized sports or any gathering or parents these days. Its funny, the acting is very real - you may think you know these people and see them in your local coffee store!!

Hopefully those who display this bad behavior will think next time they yell from the sidelines

A MUST SEE!!!!

Very irrelevant and totally ridiculous exaggerated comparisons to real soccer extremism by youth soccer parents and coaches made this movie painful and laughable (not in a comedic way but laughable by the screenwriter and actors. Seemed as though this was Jeaninne Garafalo's acting debut she was so bad. Not in the least bit funny or relevant for the subject. Made Will Farrell's 'Kicking and Screaming' seem like movie of the decade. Btw. My kid's have had really bad coaches in soccer, so I know the subject.

Kathy (Janeane Garofalo) moves into a new town where soccer and soccer politics is the norm. She goes from a normal mom to an obsessed soccer mom where all that matters is her eight year old's game, one that she is bored with and doesn't want to play. The team is coached by Nick (Christopher Titus), an overly repulsive man who makes sure his own daughter gets plenty of playing time.

The film is humorous with its mock MTM opening and had me laughing at certain scenes. The writing failed to capitalize on the situations, many times going stray of the plot and resorting to formula, with scenes being hit and miss. There were some scenes that were best left on the cutting room floor, such as the cyber sex scene that never tied back into the film.

On a side note, in real life Janeane is a devout atheist. In the film she is moved to pray to God for her girl's soccer.

The film had good characters and is worth a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

This movie along with Beer League are two great movies filmed in NJ. Buy it for yourself and for a friend.

Sadly, this movie was marketed wrong, especially its title. While there are some clever lines, it is not a comedy, but a study of suburban angst and unfulfillment. It is no more a "family" film than Ang Lee's superb "The Ice Storm", which it brought to mind while I was watching it. If it is looked at from a different vantage point, it is a scathing indictment of suburbia. The title of the play the movie was based on, "It's All About the Kids", was much more appropriate since it was an ironic commentary and really all about the parents.

The concept was intriguing but the execution was a failure. Terrible acting, weak plot, Kindergarten script. Skip it! One of the 10 wors movies I've seen!

The movie hits the mark in terms of the nuttiness of youth soccer and soccer parents; it's just not very well made or acted.

It's a pretty funny movie worth watching if your have girls that play club soccer. I think parents can be a lot worse than these parents but a lot of stuff was true and hit home lol.
