Little Giants

MPAA Rating: PG
EW's GRADE
C

Details Movie Rated: PG; Genres: Comedy, Kids and Family; With: Rick Moranis and Ed O'Neill; Distributor: Warner Bros.

They're a motley team of misfits, their best player is a tomboy, and their coach is a lifelong shlub who's proving something to himself. Meet the Little Giants: football's answer to the Bad News Bears. Or is it the Mighty Ducks? During practice, these adolescent underdogs fumble all over the field, but come the Big Game well, you know the rest. The best the formulaic Giants can offer are some gleefully juvenile gross-out gags, plus the antics of grown-ups Moranis and O'Neill as opposing brothers/coaches with a childish brand of sibling rivalry.
