Breaking The Press DVD Review

Basketball is huge in my house.  So we always watch flicks that have to do with the exciting sport.  Over the weekend, I watched  The movie retells the age old biblical story of the prodigal son.  Adopted by a Basketball coach and his wife, two brothers grow up to be stars on their father's team. 
Josh, the talented but a bit selfish son decides to leave his team in hopes of becoming and even bigger star at a rival high school.  All while his older brother is left with the daunting task of rallying the rest of the team for the rest of the season.
Josh finds that the fast pace of the new school prove to be detrimental to his walk with Christ.  He begins to hang out with the wrong crowd and ends up in major trouble.  It takes much prayer and forgiveness for this young man to find redemption and get back home to his father's loving arms.

Our thoughts:

For some reason, my boys weren't interested in watching the movie.  They started out watching it, then started playing with each other interested.  I continued to watch it by myself.
I have to say that some of the acting wasn't that great and the story line seemed to jump around quite a bit.  Some of the characters portrayals were a bit unrealistic.  When they referred to scripture, it seemed unnatural and scripted at times. 

However, I was impressed by the fact that the movie comes with a Study guide.  It's broken up into 4 Marquee Match-Ups that are selected clips.
The sessions are set up like this:

Pre-Game Warm Up

This would be a good movie to show to preteens or a youth bible study group.  It's a decent movie with a message that anyone can relate to.

Disclosure: I received this DVD in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are 100% mine.
