Little Giants (1994)
Steven Spielberg famously decided to make "Little Giants" after seeing a McDonald's Super Bowl ad and exclaiming, "I want my 'Home Alone!'"
He didn't quite get a blockbuster children's movie, but Spielberg might have been on to something. When you combine Rick Moranis, Ed O'Neill, and a bunch of misfit kids with football and fart jokes, parents can't help but feel squishy.
But Gene Lyons isn't a parent. He also isn't a moviegoer who will tolerate easy stereotypes, inorganic relationships, dumb training montages, or sports movies with trick plays.
Who will win the day in this review? Will it be Ash with her cutthroat views on child performance? Will it be Big D with his football history? Or will it be Gene hatred of storied sports franchises? It's a gridiron clash here at Shat The Movies!
