      Bridget Geerlings The Ringer Disney knows how to churn out emotional sports films, and this is an excellent addition to the roster, especially for young girls... Apr 25, 2023 Full Review Kat Halstead Common Sense Media Positive true story of twin girls' rise to pro basketball. Rated: 3/5 Jul 14, 2020 Full Review Mark Sachs South Florida Sun-Sentinel The paint-by-the-numbers movie piles on the sports cliches as ably as any male-oriented sports flick, and like such paintings, examining the finished product too closely spoils some of the fun.

      Rosana B Baseado nas histórias de vida das jogadoras de basquete gêmeas idênticas profissionais Heather e Heidi Burge, uma linda biografia, ainda que banhada na ficção, lembra muitas irmãs Serena e Williams, aqui com o pai implacável, mas menos agressivo, provavelmente pela ficção... E esses pais que acham que só dar comida e presentes que já é o suficiente para ser pai, não das gêmeas, claro a da amiguinha delas... E aquele final foi muito forçado, absurdo, 15 anos lesionada... Irreal... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A standard issue entry to the DCOM cannon, filled with likable characters and a family dynamic that's interesting when its explored. but nothing else about the movie moves the needle in terms of creativity and depth. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I watched it but, I not a basketball guy. I used to play basketball but, not anymore. It's a good movie and I like it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member If you want a good Basketball movie, this isnt it, there's almost no realism to the basketball play and the acting is actually atrocious. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review steve d Worthy story told terribly with some of the worst basketball you have ever seen. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm not the biggest sports fan but I actually really do enjoy this one Based on the true story of twins Heidi and Heather Burge who played basketball Heather and Hedi are identical blondes but they're also over 6 ft in height One wants to pursue her dream of dramatic arts the other wants to excel in sports Their father wants them to have the best possible future with scouts in tournaments but they both don't really want to put their heads in the game; not only do they have to contend with future endeavors but also fit in with a new school and be at odds with one another worrying who'll step up more Heck they even discover just how successful they can be just playing the game without even trying Sports cliches aside the two actresses really shine as these twins with their unknown zest for the game and the movies high energy These two sisters made their way into the WNBA even though it was never planned but the push from their father truly made them winning champions We never know our potential until we are already there, siblings can be best friends, and we keep doing what we do because we love it no matter the setbacks Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
