Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that characters face adversity, like poverty, infertility, and generally not getting what they want. But the characters also succeed and face their challenges head-on. The film is heavy on scripture and religious revivals, which may or may not complement your family's religious leanings. For instance, students cry in religious fervor and Coach Taylor makes an example of one team member by forcing him to carry another team member on his back across the football field even though he's in pain.
Brooke takes pregnancy tests. Grant finds out he's infertile and the couple talks about infertility.
Lots of tackling and football-related violence, but nothing graphic or bloody. Coach Taylor forces his player to push past pain even though he keeps saying he hurts.
Characters are shown facing their fears and not giving up -- presented with a strong Christian focus, which will be appealing to some and not to others. Another lesson: don't seek someplace new to follow your dreams, but "bloom where you're planted."
Ford trucks are heavily represented.
