The Longshots

The New Coach Has A Secret Weapon.


The Longshots
Based on the true story of an 11-year-old girl who became the first female quarter-back in minor league history, this is a sports-underdog tale with a difference. Pushed by her uncle, who was a star on the same team many years before, she joins the team and soon impresses everyone with her skill. As the team progresses through the ranks, she draws the crowds to help build her small-town community and give them pride.

David Jenkin quote iconLongshots is only for those who are primarily concerned with clean and wholesome viewing.

Ulpha Edries quote iconBut lameness and predictability aside, it is Jasmine's incredible journey (rather than that of her uncle) that elevates The Longshots above the usual underdogs-done-good drivel.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconHer story is remarkable, especially if you factor in her national wrestling title and honor student status.

Tomatometer quote iconThe Longshots means well, but it's a largely formulaic affair, rarely deviating from the inspirational sports movie playbook.
