Against All Odds

This is a must see show - especially for every woman that thinks she is hitting against all odds and will amount to very little. I hope and wish that, anyone feeling discouraged, they choose to watch this heartfelt movie and be empowered by it. Cathy Rush is to basketball what Clara Barton is to nursing and was truly amazing. Get your young children before this show and let them become inspired by the story of this woman who encouraged her team to grow through believing in their dreams. Every dream may be slightly different on a team, but the end result comes together when a team acts like a true team. Cathy Rush did for women's basketball in a time that it wasn't popular for women basketball teams to exist what the Jody Conradt's, etc. do for the women basketball teams of today -- definitely a woman ahead of her time. Don't worry, if you aren't necessarily a basketball fan, you'll still be amazed because the lessons learned can be applied to just about any area of life.

A very good story.

As I wrote in the review of "McFarland USA" I enjoy always the films based on a true story and specially when the film tells how people give the best of themselves in a sport (Cross-country,basketball, soccer,baseball,etc). That's is the case in "The Mighty Macs" when Cathy Rush will encourage the girls of the Immaculata College to build a team and to fight for a national basketball championship. Basketball is above all a team sport and the film shows the long way of this tiny team towards the glory. Also this film is about friendship, friendship between the nuns and Cathy and friendship between the players and Cthy.

A Tale Of A Female Basketball Coach

The Mighty Macs is a sports film that stars Carla Gugino as Cathy Rush, a Hall of Fame women's basketball coach who leads Immaculata College to a national championship in women's basketball during the 70's.Ellen Burstyn,Marley Shelton and David Boreanaz co-stars.It was written and directed by Tim Chambers.

The screenplay is based on the incredible true story of the 1971-72 Immaculata College women's basketball team that started from obscurity and win the national championship when Cathy Rush takes a job as the head women's basketball college coach.It tells the story of their training,their struggles and their victory during their first year.Later,the school became a dynasty by winning three straight national championships from 1972 to 1974.

It could be classified as generic considering that one won't find anything really refreshing in the movie.Added to that,we get to see some familiar themes and clichés like overcoming the odds,the familiar underdog story and many more.But Gugino gives an good performance that definitely would provide interest in the Mighty Macs' journey to the national victory and her journey as well as a first year coach.As for the action on the court,there is nothing really spectacular except that one would really enjoy the hard work,dedication and determination to overcome the odds they Mighty Macs are facing.Overall,it does not really fall short in entertainment especially for sports fans who love underdog stories.Definitely,a family film.
