From the writer of HOOSIERS and RUDY, MY ALL AMERICAN tells the true story of Freddie Steinmark. Although deemed too small as an athlete, Freddie (Finn Wittrock) dreams of playing football and brings a fight to the game that is noticed by legendary coach Darrell Royal (Aaron Eckhart), leading to a scholarship to play college football. With dedication and grueling practices, a victorious season is within reach, but Freddie then receives a shocking diagnosis and discovers what it truly means to have the heart of a champion.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: My All American has a genuinely moving real-life story to tell, but writer-director Angelo Pizzo fumbles it into manipulative, melodramatic tearjerker territory.

Heartfelt (if bland) football biopic is great for game fans.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that My All American is a sentimental biographical drama about the late, beloved University of Texas football player Freddie Steinmark (Finn Wittrock), whom most considered too small for the sport -- except for Longhorns legend Coach Darrell Royal (Aaron Eckhart). The movie follows Freddie as he goes from determined Pee-Wee player to standout high school star and finally as a Longhorn who played even when he was in unimaginable pain. A story of confidence, faith, and an enduring love of football, the movie does contain a few uses of strong language ("bulls--t," "damn," "ass"), as well as several scenes of kissing and one in which a player moons the field (but nothing more graphic than that). In addition to gridiron action, a fight breaks out at a war protest.
