Movie Review: The Mighty Macs - G

In Theaters October 21.  Based on a true story.

Cathy Rush becomes the head women's basketball coach at Immaculata College, a small all-girls college run by nuns.  Actually,  the team has no place to practice, hardly any equipment to speak of, and minimal support from the administration.  She gets plenty of support from the nuns....Sister Sunday becomes her assistant coach, and the rest of the nuns become a sort of booster club for the team.  

Cathy eventually pulls it all together and leads the girls' team to three straight national championships.  Since this time, Immaculata has gone coed and become Immaculata University.  (check out the real team's site below  :)

A real family movie that is both entertaining and inspirational!
