Takes the typical 'rags to riches' sports premise and leaves out the fame aspect. The characters are endearing for being identifiable types, but presented more off center. The genre parts are enjoyable despite the familiarity. The third act almost turns this into a different movie all-together. Things become emotionally heavy when the main characters are faced with drastic changes that are cause for the hardest life decision.
