Girl Power, Football Style
24 January 2001 | by F. Mt. PleasantSee all my reviews

I first saw this film when I was 12 years old and I remember it as if it were yesterday. Every frame, every line of dialogue sticks in my mind as if with glue. Is it Helen Hunt's mesmerizing voice or John Stockwell's magnetic high school sexuality? Who could ever say, but that log rolling scene does tip the scale in his favor. That's my opinion and I get to have whatever opinion I want because this is my square of writing, alloted to me by the IMBD. Thank you, IMDB, for letting a guy blow off some steam on a Wednesday night. Steam that's been building up for 25 some odd years. Steam a quarterback needs to win the big game against St. Stephen's. And Helen Hunt has got what it takes to bring home the cup or chalice. I can't remember anymore. So, good then. See it, but don't buy it. It's no good if you have to pay for it. Try to catch it on PAX some afternoon when you're in bed with the flu or chronic depression. Go team. love sincerely, F Mt. P
