Throwback Thursday-Little Giants (1994)

There is nothing like having a sibling. It’s the most complicated of human relationships.

In the 1994 movie, Little Giants, brothers Kevin and Danny O’Shea (Rick Moranis and Ed O’Neill) are as different as night and day. Danny is the nerd and Kevin is the jock. Kevin is the coach of the local kids team and has dreams of taking his team to the championship. When Danny’s daughter is rejected from the team because she is a girl, she and the others who were rejected start a team of their own. The problem is that what they lack the skills and the enthusiasm to succeed.

Only one team can represent their town. Which team will win and represent the town in the championship?

This movie is about the underdog. It is also about a small, but important step on the road to feminism, a girl not only playing a traditionally male sport, but also leading the team.

Do I recommend it? If your 12, yes. If your older, maybe not.
