I really enjoyed this film a lot more than I thought I would. It's very emotional, heartfelt, well acted and quite comical. I liked Kevin Costner as Jim White. I liked the way the team was portrayed.
For a biographical film that has a bit of comedy, I think the humor aspect here actually worked. For instance, there is this one scene where Jim and his family eat at this Mexican restaurant and he asks the register if they have any burgers.
I'm not going to spoil anything but the final scene was excellent.
Overall, I thought it was a very good feel good sports drama and I highly recommend it to those interested in sports. Personally, I think it's quite better than Million Dollar Arm.
In the end, McFarland, USA is by far the most impressive Disney sports biopic to date.
McFarland, USA is now available on Blu-ray and DVD and Digital HD.
