the Mighty Macs,
This review is from: The Mighty Macs (DVD)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.

Catholic and LOVING it! says:
I too thought that this was an amazing film. It is based on the real life story of former University of Illinois Women's Basketball coach Teresa Grentz and her teammates. You will absolutely LOVE this movie. Great for families too. I plan to buy a few copies of this movie to give as gifts - that is just how good this is. This is not a chick flick - guys and ladies alike. Especially good for teens and those who have been to Catholic schools will really appreciate the humor.

This movie is not about the U of Illinois and Teresa Gentz. What ever gave this person this idea is wrong. This is the true story of Immaculata College's rise in Women's basketball and it is plainly stayed at the end. This person must not have seen the movie or left before it was over.
