Product Description

Wendy Handler is a frazzled single mother of four trying to raise her kids the best she can. Wendys daughter, Becca, loves to play soccer but is stuck on a team that cant seem to win. When a famous retired soccer star Lorenzo agrees to coach Beccas floundering team no one is more excited than Becca. When Wendy causes an accident that leaves the soccer star in the hospital she impulsively decides to masquerade as Lorenzo and coach Beccas team herself! Hilarity ensues as Wendy must keep up her charade and not let her daughter find out who their real coach is!

Amazon.com

Teenage girls often struggle with self-confidence and the members of the losing Galaxy girl's soccer team are finding their own sense of inadequacy difficult to overcome. When their lackluster coach gets transferred to Italy, the team's hopes soar at the promise of soccer legend Lorenzo Vincenzo (What I Like About You's Dan Cortese) filling in as temporary coach. The team's excitement threatens to turn to bitter disappointment when the soccer great refuses to coach the team upon landing in California. Soccer mom Wendy (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Missi Pyle), concerned that her daughter Becca (Hannah Montana's Emily Osment)is at a crossroads in dealing with the death of her father, decides to take things into her own hands in order to avoid disappointing her daughter and the rest of the team. With the help of a couple of friends, Wendy disguises herself as Lorenzo Vincenzo and, before she knows it, she's coaching her daughter's soccer team incognito. Wendy's double life becomes increasingly complicated and comedy reigns as she tries to keep her dual identity a secret while inspiring the team to greatness. In the end, everyone involved learns an important lesson about the power of self-confidence and the special bond between mothers and daughters. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

I rented this movie from RedBox and I couldn't stop lauging as the mom tries to play a popular italian soccer star just to convince the girls soccer team that he is actually coming to coach. She and the soccer star actually got into an altercation at the airport and he blatantly refused to coach the soccer team, but there are some real surprising twists as the movie progreses. I was laughing for more than a full minute on the part where the real "Lorenzo" pours a pitcher of water on himself because two other people poured water on him because they thought he couldn't "make up his mind" on what to order. The truth of the matter was the mom (Missi Pyle) was impersonating him and they were in the same room!

You just need to watch the movie to find out if the mom's (Missi Pyle's) act of playing Lorenzo the Italian soccer star is exposed. Emily Osmont did an excellent job as playing Missi Pyle's daughter and she is very good at playing soccer. I wish I could give this movie 6 stars because of how closely it resembled Mrs. Doubtfire and She's the Man (both excellent movies where people try to impersonate others).

I wasn't sure why some people gave it negative reviews based on the sexual dialagoue, but this is a teen movie. What did you expect? But anyway this movie is actually worth buying and keeping as a collector's edition.

What a special movie, for the entire family. Soccer Mom has it all: strong family values, humor and suspense, and general warmth that touches the entire family. Not just girl power, but family power too. And some great acting. We can't stop talking about it!

I bought this movie based on a recommendation from a friend. My wife and I thought it was well done and funny. My young daughters especially enjoyed watching Emily Osment and the soccer scenes. The story is not the most original, but it has a warm message driving it. Missi Pyle does a great job as Wendy and as Lorenzo. We really felt she cared about her daughter's happiness. It was fun to watch, and we laughed a lot.

This was purchased for my 9 year old granddaughter. She is a soccer player and really enjoyed this movie. The story line was a little far fetched but it brought many laughs. Our family watched this together and it was liked by all ages.

I'm not sure what to think about Soccer Mom to be totally honest. I laughed enough times that I found myself enjoying it, but that doesn't change the fact the storyline definitely has a low budget feel to it.

The film definitely contains humor, though I must admit I didn't really catch any of the sexual references that many others apparently have. If that's the case, yeah, you probably shouldn't let your teens watch this movie.

The goofy Italian guy was hilarious most of the time, as was the majority of the little things such as the soccer moms kids letting the family dog eat peanut butter and slobber all over the place, haha.

There *is* a positive message about not giving up when it comes to playing the game of soccer poorly. Gotta give the film a little bit of credit there. Not the greatest film in the world, but decent enough for a rental.

Sometimes corny, generally predictable, Soccer Mom is nonetheless a surprisingly entertaining. In a plot twist reminiscent of Tootsie, a suburban soccer mom dresses up as an Italian soccer star to impress her daughter's team. This film isn't flashy and the acting won't leave you floored, but it does the job.

I suspect this will be a good movie for older kids/younger teens. I found the complaints about sexual innuendos to be nonsense. The whole point of the plot twist is that the female does not realize she's kissing the mom, but thinks she's kissing a soccer star. It's not a lesbian kiss.

Predictable, low production values, acting is pretty good. A great movie for my soccer loving 11 year old girl.Annoying sequences of soccer games: the ball changes instaneously as does the weather and the editing is VERY choppy. A lot of close in shots of girls' cleats running around.
