It's 1971. Cathy Rush is a woman ahead of her time ... and she's about to embark on an adventure for the ages. Recently hired as the coach of tiny Immaculata College, Cathy's challenges are as imposing as the big-school teams her Macs will face. There is no gymnasium, no fan support, and no money. To top it off, Cathy may not even have enough players for a team! While it appears the Macs don't have a prayer, all hope is not lost. With the help of Sister Sundaya spunky assistant coach and the support of a booster club of elderly nuns, Cathy creates a new game plan that just might bring the team and the school together. Will the unrelenting drive of this first-year coach spur her rag-tag team to unexpected heights? Or will it create a wedge between the coach and everyone around her? One thing's for certain: there's never been anyone like Cathy Rush at Immaculata!
Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Its heart is obviously in the right place, but The Mighty Macs is too blandly formulaic to transcend the genre's many cliches.
Tame girls' basketball tale is sentimental but inspiring.
