Editorial Reviews

From the inspiring true story comes the tale of one woman who just wanted to make a difference and wound up making history! When Coach Cathy Rush (Carla Gugino, Mr. Popper's Penguins) arrives at tiny Immaculata College, the women’s basketball team has no budget, no uniforms and no gym. Refusing to give up, Cathy finds help from a young nun named Sister Sunday (Marley Shelton, Never Been Kissed). Together, their relentless drive reignites the team's spirit and the Mighty Macs start conquering bigger and better-funded schools. As financial troubles rock Immaculata, the Macs charge into the championships against all odds. Can the Mighty Macs save their school with one last long shot at victory? You'll stand up and cheer for the heartwarming, incredible season that made the real Cathy Rush a Basketball Hall of Fame legend!

This review is based on seeing the movie in the theater when it was out (only for 1 week and only very limited distribution, unfortunately). It is a very entertaining, uplifting film. Set in a Catholic College, the film has some religious content and values, but is not preachy. I did not have the sense of an underlying religious message. Rather, it is a sports film following the somewhat predictable formula of underdog triumphing but with enough quirky turns to hold my interest. The overall result is similar in many ways to "Rudy". If you liked "Rudy", you will probably enjoy this movie as well. I am on the list for notification when the DVD is available and plan to purchase it.

Great movie for everyone especially for those girls who love the game. The movie chronicles the emergence of women's basketball in America. Its an uplifting story of the vaunted Mighty Macs of Immaculata College from little Catholic college to national basketball power. Its about believing in yourself, your coach and your teammates and illustrates the power of a team to do the impossible. The All American center went on to coach Rutgers to a national championship herself and her players went on to other championships at other schools - all from the Mighty Macs.

If you have a liitle girl who wants to play ball show her this film.

This movie was one of the best movies I have ever seen. Well at least in a long time. Saw in a movie theater. And it was only showing in one theater for one showing every other day for the week. What a shame. A family movie like that should have been more exposed. I love this movie that much that when it is available to purchase, I will buy it and it will be a part of my movie collection.

EXCELLENT MOVIE!!!! I remember when girls still had to play w/6 players - 3 on offense, 3 on defense and each could not cross the center line. This was well before Title IX; before girls had as many opportunities in sports as they do now. This movie takes place the year after the 6/6 rule was changed to the current system of full court play w/5 players. Ladies, remember those who came before you to get what you have now. For those who come from (past or present) the Philadelphia area, this movie takes place in the (then) small girls Catholic school of Immaculta College - just outside of Philly. Look for cameos by real Cathy Rush and Ed Rush. Also one of the nuns is actually an original player from the Championship Years of 1972-1974. Remember to stay after the movie is over, because it tells you how the players are doing now. GET IT ON DVD.

Format: DVD
Take a trip back to 1971 when women's college basketball was just beginning. Not many women tried out for the sport, and it was far from being taken seriously. The Immaculata, a small Catholic college, has just hired a new basketball coach - Cathy Rush - to coach the Macs. Cathy's goal is to turn the inexperienced women's team with a losing streak into a #1 team. However, there isn't much hope. The college gymnasium recently burned to the ground. Most of the players lack experience. Cathy's unorthodox ideas aren't exactly embraced by the Nuns at the college, and financial problems abound threatening to close Immaculata. Old uniforms and a lack of funds to purchase shoes and travel to games add to the troubles. Can Cathy, along with her assistant coach, a Nun named Sister Sunday, turn things around for the flailing team?

There are many great moments in this movie. One of the girls comes from a poverty-stricken home. When pictures are taken, she wears her only outfit - a pair of ratty overalls and old boots. The result is an act of compassion that, for me, was a tearjerker moment. Another great moment is when Cathy has the chance to confront her former basketball coach and does so with grace toward someone who had caused her much pain.

There are some humorous moments throughout this movie as well. Viewers will want to be sure to watch The Mighty Macs ESPN segment at the end of the movie, which shows coverage from the real games and highlights some of the real-life players, as well as, the real Cathy Rush.

I enjoyed this movie. It's a heartwarming and touching story for the entire family about an underdog team and the value of teamwork. I have added it to my mom-approved listing of family movies on my wordpress blog.

"It will take an act of God to save this school." Cathy Rush (Gugino)is a modern woman in the '70's. Her husband is not working and rather then staying home she decided to go out and get a job coaching at a local all girls catholic school. With no gym, uniforms, a school about to close and a lack of talent she does her best to make the team better then it ever thought it could. I should tell you right off that I am a sucker for sports movies. I will watch pretty much any movie about sports. Most of the sports movies that come out lately are true stories and to me that makes them better. This one is about a small catholic girls school that went from no gym to trying to win the national championship. Not only is this inspiring but it really makes you feel for what the girls had to go through to get there. This is one of the better sports movies I have seen and I highly recommend this to everyone...not just girls. Overall, a great family movie that any parent with a high school girl who is unsure of herself should watch. I give it an A.
