Davie Stewie was America's hope for gold in the 1988 Seoul Games - until he ran face-first into the vault. After suffering humiliation on a global scale, Dave eventually faded into obscurity and became a gym teacher. When the President announces a national gym class fitness competition, Dave believes the moment has finally come to redeem himself. There's only one thing standing in the way; a helmet-wearing, injury fearing, athletically-adverse new student named Roland. And to top it all off, Dave has a growing crush on the school's new teacher who turns out to be Roland's mom. What's a coach to do? In order to win the competition and avenge his defeats, Dave must turn Roland into an athletic competitor. Will they win the gold or get laughed off the mats?

Common Sense Says
Underdog sports comedy has a bit of edge to it.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this made-for-TV movie touches on themes like teamwork, perseverance, and self-perception and examines what it means to be a winner. There's some poor sportsmanship and bullying (tweens tease a classmate, putting him down and throwing things at him), but it could prompt family discussions about respecting others and being tolerant of differences. Expect some sexual inferences (a woman's flirtatious remarks about a man's chiseled physique, a tween couple's one brief kiss, one teacher's mild fantasies about another) and name-calling. One of the co-stars, Amy Sedaris, has a reputation as an edgy comedienne.
