The Game of Their Lives

This inspirational sports drama, based on the true life account by Geoffrey Douglas, details the 1950 U.S. Soccer Team's stunning World Cup victory against England in the tiny town of Belo Horizante, Brazil. So unlikely was the upset that oddsmakers put it at 500-to-1, and many newspapers refused to print the final results, assuming it to be a hoax. Director David Anspaugh, responsible for the likes of Rudy and Hoosiers, is equally sincere with this film; but the sports movie clichés seem a bit shopworn this time around. The cast sounds impressive, rounding up Wes Bentley, Gerard Butler, Patrick Stewart, John Rhys-Davies and even rocker Gavin Rossdale, but our teammates are an ill-defined lot. Despite some script and budgetary flaws, the film does deliver enough manly bonding moments to put a tear in the eye of hardcore soccer hooligans. 101 minutes PG.
