The biggest game in the world comes to the smallest town in America in this action-packed comedy about a group of bored misfits who become local soccer heroes. THE BIG GREEN will elicit big grins from the whole family! Nothing ever happens in Elma, Texas ... at least not until British schoolteacher Anna Montgomery (Olivia d'Abo) arrives. Determined to motivate her students, Anna decides to form a soccer team. She enlists the aid of out-of-shape sheriff Tom Palmer (Steve Guttenberg), who agrees to coach the team so he can beat his old nemesis, the ruthless coach of the big city bullies, the Knights. THE BIG GREEN scores with parents as well as with kids, who learn the importance of being a team player ... and a good sport!

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this feel-good sports movie has a sideline reference to alcoholism (Kate's father, a heavy drinker, is seen passed out at a bar), and some rebellious behavior by bored kids, but everyone overcomes their obstacles by the end of the movie.
