Synopsis:
In small town America, high-school football is everything. For the players, it provides
notoriety and a possible ticket to a bigger world. For the community, it's a source of
pride. Filmed in Canton, Ohio, UNDERDOGS focuses on the Knights, a lousy team
who've become an easy target for jokes. Just when they begin to give up hope, a new
coach arrives, helping the lovable losers see their true potential. At the same time,
quarterback Bobby Burkett falls in love with a cheerleader from a rival powerhouse, the
Vikings. This enrages Vikings' star, John Handon, a bratty rich kid who has his eye on
the same girl. Meanwhile, Bobby's father is waging his own war with Handonʼs dad,
whose crooked corporation is suing him over an invention he patented. UNDERDOGS
ventures deeper than most films in the sports genre. Using football as a backdrop,
director Doug Dearth has crafted a heartwarming and rabble-rousing crowd pleaser,
that's sure to have both young and old on their feet by its exhilarating ending.

Dove Worldview:
"Underdogs" is a must-see movie! It is a story of hope. You will believe in this rag-team team of underdogs, the St. Thomas Aquinas Knights football team, led by new coach Vince Deantonio. The film is based on true events and features an appearance by the inimitable Joe Namath.

Coach Vince tells his new team that he has heard they stink but he doesn't believe it. He believes their habits stink and they need to forge new ones along with the belief they can win. Along the way we are introduced to interesting characters such as Bobby Burkett, who falls for a cheerleader of a rival team, a Division One team. Bobby's father works for a powerful employer named Handon, wonderfully played by Richard Portnow, who won't give Bobby's father, Bill, the chance to advance despite his inventive ideas. These underdog stories will have you cheering by film's end as you see the possibility that maybe, just maybe, the little man can win one time.

We are pleased to award this inspiring and remarkable movie our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus. This one will make your spirit soar!
