Do you know what your children dream of being when they grow up? My daughter’s dream was to be a singer and then it turned to being a mom. We supported her all the way to tryouts for American Idol in 2004 and again for X-Factor in 2013. My granddaughter has a very active life at the age of 3 3/4 yrs old (she will be 4 in July) and we are always there supporting her, she got her 1st ball at T-Ball with me on the field with her. We’re all very proud of her giving her all to everything she does. The movie Alex and Me is a soccer movie with a hidden message for kids. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Alex and me is a Blu-Ray Combo Disk set being released today. The film follows the uplifting story of a young female athlete who learns how you need passion, determination and self-worth to make all your dreams come true. The movie stars Alex Morgan, who is an Olympic Gold Medalist and FIFA Women’s World Cup champion. She’s an awesome role model for young athletes. With Alex making her first movie debut role in a sports comedy/drama, you might find your daughter or a girl like my granddaughter relating to the movie in many ways.
Reagan, a young girl wants to be a star soccer player like her idol, Alex, but she has a couple of setbacks. She like all other kids has posters on her wall. One of the posters of Alex comes to life and helps her with her training. This is a cute movie about a girl giving her all to realize her dream.
This is a refreshing movie with positive role models which is what kids need in their life. There are not many movies that show failure is OK and if you try a bit harder you will achieve your goal. I see no reason why little boys wouldn’t like this movie, but I do know that little girls and little athletes will enjoy watching this G rated film. We love the fact that the movie has a positive message for sports fan of all ages.
About Alex and Me
Teenager Reagan Willis (Agudong) has one dream – to play soccer like her hero, Alex Morgan. Her bedroom is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Willis house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her prep football superstar brother, Logan. When Reagan fails to make the cut of the premiere local soccer club team and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she’s certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan’s poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life and everything changes!
Also featuring Nickelodeon star Siena Agudong (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn and the upcoming Star Falls). Jerry Trainor (iCarly) also stars as Nigel, a less-than-reliable youth soccer coach, alongside Matt Cornett (Bella and the Bulldogs) as Reagan’s brother, Logan; Colin Critchley (Legends of the Hidden Temple) as Reagan’s soccer-playing pal, Ben; Chuiti Tiu (Nashville) as Reagan’s mother, Ann Wills; and Jim Klock (True Detective, Scream Queens) as Reagan’s father (and biggest fan), Joe Wills.
