Warner Brothers – Alex & Me – DVD Review
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in the Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Teenager Reagan Wills has one dream, to play soccer like her hero Alex Morgan. In fact, her room is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Wills house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her superstar brother Logan, the MVP of his high school football team. When Reagan fails to make the cut of her middle school soccer club and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she’s certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan’s poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life and everything changes!
Very entertaining movie! Both my 17-year-old and 8-year-old enjoyed watching it. As a parent, I enjoyed the movie as it is hard to actually find movies that are family oriented and rated “G”, which I thought was great to have no vulgar language or sexual situations.
The story touches base on sibling rivalry, classmate competition and somewhat bullying, which most kids see somewhere in their school years. This movie also strived in pushing the audience towards reaching their dreams and the importance of working hard towards their goals.
This movie would also be a great youth group movie that could really create some great discussion in regards to how to treat others and competing, etc.
