Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this feel-good sports movie has a sideline reference to alcoholism (Kate's father, a heavy drinker, is seen passed out at a bar), and some rebellious behavior by bored kids, but everyone overcomes their obstacles by the end of the movie.

Sexual Content

The Knight's coach wagers Miss Montgomery a kiss if he wins the game. She responds that he must kiss the mascot goat if her team wins.


Some pushing and shoving among classmates. Kate has a pocket knife at school that she uses to carve graffiti on her desk.


"Damned," "hell," spoken by parents. "Kick butt" by kids.

Social Behavior

Team camaraderie, friendship, and support of one another's skills are all themes running through this feel-good movie.


Embedded product placement: "I wish we had a Pizza Hut in our town." and "We stopped at Pizza Hut." A bag of Cheetos makes a memorable appearance in the first scene.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Kate's dad is a very heavy drinker, who is seen passed out drunk at a bar. Parents drink beer and smoke cigarettes in the local bar.
