Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The tropes of both football and evangelical movies are gracelessly on parade in this banal, insipid drama.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that characters face adversity, like poverty, infertility, and generally not getting what they want. But the characters also succeed and face their challenges head-on. The film is heavy on scripture and religious revivals, which may or may not complement your family's religious leanings. For instance, students cry in religious fervor and Coach Taylor makes an example of one team member by forcing him to carry another team member on his back across the football field even though he's in pain.
