Editorial Reviews

Inspired by the true story of WNBA players Heidi and Heather Burge -- also known as the world's tallest twins -- DOUBLE TEAMED is slam dunk fun for everyone! High school freshman Heidi (Annie McElwain, SAVED BY THE BELL: THE NEW CLASS) and her sister Heather (Poppi Monroe, THE LAST DON) may be twins, but they have little in common, except for basketball. Heather dreams of stardom in the WNBA while Heidi dreams of stardom as an actress. With their dad Larry (Nick Searcy, CAST AWAY) and mom Mary (Mackenzie Phillips, SO WEIRD) at odds over their future, it seems no one is playing as a team. Worst of all their jealous teammate Nicky has just revealed a secret that could get them kicked off the team. Clearly, these twins need to get a game plan -- and fast -- because the championship, a scholarship, and their relationship are at stake ... and time is quickly running out!

5.0 out of 5 stars this is a good one January 31, 2002
By Grace
Format:VHS Tape
"Double Teamed" is a great movie--and it's a true story, too. =) Based on the real-life stories of Heather and Heidi Burge, this film follows the lives of twin girls with a mother who just wants them to be happy and a father who is willing to do anything to make sure they prepare for their futures, even if it means transferring them to a different school so they can play sports. The girls adjust quickly to their new school. Heidi finds a niche in the drama/acting department, and Heather finds herself a spot on the basketball team (the twins are very tall, so the coach is practically begging them to play, haha). The girls' father literally forces Heidi to quit the school play in which she got one of the lead roles and join the basketball team with Heather. This does not go down well with Heidi, especially since she is not as athletic as her sister and therefore feels overshadowed by Heather. But the girls work at it, and they grow to love playing on the team. There is one setback, though: a rich snob on the team named Nikki who resents Heather and Heidi because they are threatening her position as the "star" of the team. But things do get better throughout the movie....it's just a really good movie and I would definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Disney movie!! June 28, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Disney does it again, with this wonderful film about sisters and success. I watched this with my young daughters, and not only did it bring up lots and lots of wholesome subjects for us to discuss. We had a lot of fun talking and watching this film. Wonderful family movie, with numerous valuable messages for your children to learn and talk about with you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Double! January 23, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Two enjoyable, funny, well-cast teenage girls play the parts of Heather and Heidi Burge. Many emotions are felt when watching this movie: Happiness, sadness, and even a little bit of anticipation! I never say this is one of my favorite Disney Channel Original Movies when asked, but then every time it's on I watch it. My only problems with the movie are these:

Even though it can be entertaining, the "Dad Who Doesn't Have A Clue" plot is becoming over-used. There are only a few parts where it makes the story interesting.

So, basically, I only have one minor problem with the movie. Otherwise, it's great! But I would wait for it to come on the Disney Channel before I would buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for all girls March 10, 2002
By Allison
Format:VHS Tape
When I saw a preview of this movie I thought i was really dumb. I turned it on because i got curious and the actress really made them act like sister. They show how important it is for them to work together as a team and how women like us can achieve anything as long as we know what we want and how hard we have to work to get it. Little girls should know that they can become the biggest stars as long as they remember who they are!

What an oustanding film. I just did not care for the pressures from the father towards his daughter, Heidi, but it was one of a kind! I definetly suggest you buy it after renting it first to see if you like it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars True Story, True Fun March 1, 2003
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Not only a great girl-power movie, but fun for twins. As a twin, I appreciated the competitiveness and other twin issues that the movie brought out.

The twins also deal with other "normal" issues, like pressure from their parents, competetiveness with other team players, crushes on boys. . . This movie retains an innocence that many other movies lack. The whole family can watch this movie.
