Editorial Reviews

From their meager beginning in the 1980s as "the red headed stepchild" of sports through four World Cups and three Olympic games, Dare to Dream examines how Mia Hamm broke through as a media phenomenon, why Brandi Chastain's celebratory moment stirred so much controversy, and how Julie Foudy, Michelle Akers, and Joy Fawcett overcame daunting obstacles to help the team step into history, and in the process lift the aspirations of all young women.

5.0 out of 5 stars I watched because of my daughter, but I loved it too. August 22, 2007
By JKav
Last year, I began coaching my daughter's U-8 team. The girls knew nothing about the glories of the USWNT. I told them about Mia Hamm and got them to read a brief bio on her, but this HBO documentary was the best teaching tool ever.

It is a great story that uses the retirement game for Hamm, Fawcett and Foudy to lok back at the history of the WNT from the first WC in 1991 through the 2004 Olympics.

This movie can't help but increase the self esteem of any young girl just starting the sport to see how good the Americans can be at soccer. Because the Men's World Cup gets more publicity, my girls all thought that Americans just weren't very good at soccer and that it was dominated by a half dozen European and So. American countries. This video points out that historically the US WNT is the best. It really got my daughter interested in the current WNT and we even went to see a game in San Jose last month.

The release is being timed to come just after the beginning of this year's Women's World Cup in China. (The first game for the US team, who are #1 ranked again, is Sept. 11th.

HBO is also selling it directly through their website, but for $5 more.

5.0 out of 5 stars This One's a Score January 13, 2008
By JOE F.
I originally saw this documentary on HBO over a year ago. After watching it, I knew I had to get it on DVD for my daughter for Christmas this year. A truly inspirational story for anyone, but especially for young women, this story of the USA Women's Soccer Team shows their rise from obscurity to glory. My daughter was so captivated by the emotional and educational aspects of the Team's struggle to achieve validation, notoriety and greatness in the historically male centric American sports scene, that she has already planned to have her entire soccer team over to our house for a group viewing to inspire them for the upcoming season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare to Dream June 22, 2008
I coach a U14 Girls Travel soccer team and as a motivating practice, I watched this movie with my team and they loved it! I was a bit surprised at the editing, as there were a few moments of bad language that I wouldn't necessarily let younger kids hear, but other than that, and if you don't really care, the video was raw and honest and perfect for inspriring girl athletes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming and Inspiring July 16, 2008
I have been a fan of soccer for over 30 years. For me there are certain American highlights that I will always remember - Pele coming to America, the mens world cup being held here, and the women's world cup championship. I first saw this documentary when traveling to New York City. I can remember sitting there and thinking how well Dare to Dream captured the feelings of the time around this team. I could not wait to get it so I can watch it again.

I have a daughter who plays soccer and other sports and it's hard to find mainstream media stories about succesful women athletes. This video does it all - it's a great soccer story, it's a great story about women, and it's a great story about atheletes who truly came from no where and vaulted into the psyche of this country and plenty of others.

While it is a great story I think that the production of this documentary is also extremely well done. Great action scenes, great interviews, and some great private video footage. Excellent - an absolute must for any fan of women's soccer. A great buy for any fan of sports.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a movie for young soccer players December 31, 2008
By kimmy t
Verified Purchase
This is a great movie no doubt, but young soccer players should probably not watch it. The profanity is really bad, and you hear it from the players. To me, that is what ruins soccer. I hate hearing that on the field. If a young player watches this they are going to think, 'wow if Julie Foudy can talk like that on the field then so can I'. It is a HBO movie so what do you expect.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive
Great video. I should have read the details. I thought it was a multi disk set. It was way too expensive for one video. Great story, but too expensive.
