(2006) Inspiring truth-based sports drama about a juvenile detention camp probation officer (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) who organizes a football team from among the teen inmates (including Jade Yorker and David Thomas) to teach them discipline and teamwork, and through his tough-love determination succeeds in instilling self-esteem and turning their lives in a positive direction, while competing for the regional high school championship. Despite formulaic plot elements, director Phil Joanou’s uplifting movie shows the heart of a winner, with emotional performances and a surprisingly strong redemptive theme of second chances. Pervasive crude language, scattered profanity, an instance of the F-word, intense street violence, brief sexual humor, football roughness and a few racial slurs. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) A&E (cable)
