  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Gracie Bowen (Schroeder) is a typical 15-year-old girl with one exception: she would like to play soccer on the boy

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.38:1 DVD shows overblown contrast and a washed-out color balance during the daytime scenes. The DVD generally shows good resolution, with fine details, like faint mist in the air and individual blades of grass delivered well. Night shots can show spurious noise. Color banding can be noticed at times, and compression artifacts can make a mess of some shots. Edge enhancement is relatively minor, and generally only noticeable over high-contrast transitions.
