From Ice Cube, the star of such hits as "Barbershop," "Are We There Yet?" and "First Sunday," comes a family-fun film, "The Longshots." When Curtis Plummer (Ice Cube), a down on his luck former high school football star, takes the only job he can find – babysitting his misfit niece Jasmine (Keke Palmer), he discovers that she has the skills that once made him a great quarterback. The only place these two opposites get along is on the field, so Curtis is determined to turn Jasmine into the star of the local team, The Minden Browns, and get his own stride back by becoming the coach. The boys on the team don't want her but when this girl quarterback shows them she's got the skills, she'll turn their whole world upside down.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: What makes this one different? Absolutely nothing. (Sure, it's based on a true story, but I mean come on, whatever.)
Fresh: The most surprising thing about the inspirational sports movie The Longshots is not that there isn't already an inspirational sports movie with that exact name. The big shock is that the director Fred Durst -- and he doesn't do half bad.
Rotten: Former Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst directs in a surprisingly dull fashion, and most of the characters, including Jasmine's mother and father, are numbingly one-dimensional.
Fresh: The Longshots is a likable enough Cinderella story, one whose heart is clearly in the right place, even if it winds up on its sleeve once too often.
