Family friendly, Her Best Move rises above the other teen/kid soccer movies in the authenticity of the players and the story. The film accurately portrays the trade-offs and stresses on soccer prodigies as well as their families and coaches.
The actors and extras have soccer skills that are well captured by the cinematography. Sadly, the movie is not as entertaining as the stories behind the movie:
- Norm Hunter, the writer-director-producer, was a dad soccer coach in CYSA-North. After making his fortune in manufacturing, at age 45, he started a film studio, and this was his first feature film (it may have gone straight to DVD).
