Gracie - Beck It Like Gracie

Gracie (Carly Schroeder) is devastated when her oldest brother, the star soccer player in a family of soccer nuts, is killed in a car accident. In fact, the whole family is thrown into an absolute tailspin. Gracie struggles to overcome her grief by attempting to take her bro's place on the boy's soccer team. But the team - and her former-soccer star dad - don't think a girl could ever be good enough to play with them.

Gracie - Girl Power

Gracie's ambitions start causing trouble on the home front. Her mom (Elisabeth Shue) worries her daughter will get hurt, and her dad tells her she's not good enough to play with the boys. Without her family's support, Gracie begins acting out, and her father finally changes his mind about her joining the boy's team in the hopes that the sport will give her a positive focus. Gracie starts becoming a stronger soccer player, and her dad begins to find the strength to heal from their tragic past.

Gracie - Bottom Line

Gracie is a feel-good story that reminds us how far you can get with a little determination and the support of a loving family. It can be pretty heavy on the clichés at times and often feels too much like a TV movie of the week, but its girl-power message and heart-warming conclusion make it a good sappy flick for a night out with the girls.

Gracie Rating: 3
