Rated PG, 107 min. Directed by Duwayne Dunham. Starring Rick Moranis, Ed O'Neill, Shawna Waldron and John Madden.
Little Giants offers nothing new in the way of children's entertainment. If you have ever seen a sports movie for kids, you already know exactly what is going to happen and when it will occur. Other than that, Little Giants is a pretty good film. Moranis, recently typecast as an off-beat but kind-hearted father figure, goes all the way with his role as the off-beat but kind-hearted father and coach. O'Neill, best known for his role as the annoying father on Married With Children, excels as the annoying father and coach. Boy, allow these two actors to stretch their wings a little and they just carry the whole film. Little Giants also benefits from appearances from some football greats, including John Madden. (Be warned, though, this interesting scene gets all of five minutes of screen time.) The film also relies heavily on bathroom humor for laughs. Although, on the whole, it is pretty tame stuff. Little Giants is a funny and entertaining little film that suffers from a blatant lack of originality. Read a full review of Little Giants.No current showings of this film.
