Wendy Handler is a frazzled single mother of four trying to raise her kids the best she can. Wendys daughter, Becca, loves to play soccer but is stuck on a team that cant seem to win. When a famous retired soccer star Lorenzo agrees to coach Beccas floundering team no one is more excited than Becca. When Wendy causes an accident that leaves the soccer star in the hospital she impulsively decides to masquerade as Lorenzo and coach Beccas team herself! Hilarity ensues as Wendy must keep up her charade and not let her daughter find out who their real coach is!
Teenage girls often struggle with self-confidence and the members of the losing Galaxy girl's soccer team are finding their own sense of inadequacy difficult to overcome. When their lackluster coach gets transferred to Italy, the team's hopes soar at the promise of soccer legend Lorenzo Vincenzo (What I Like About You's Dan Cortese) filling in as temporary coach. The team's excitement threatens to turn to bitter disappointment when the soccer great refuses to coach the team upon landing in California. Soccer mom Wendy (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Missi Pyle), concerned that her daughter Becca (Hannah Montana's Emily Osment)is at a crossroads in dealing with the death of her father, decides to take things into her own hands in order to avoid disappointing her daughter and the rest of the team. With the help of a couple of friends, Wendy disguises herself as Lorenzo Vincenzo and, before she knows it, she's coaching her daughter's soccer team incognito. Wendy's double life becomes increasingly complicated and comedy reigns as she tries to keep her dual identity a secret while inspiring the team to greatness. In the end, everyone involved learns an important lesson about the power of self-confidence and the special bond between mothers and daughters. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi
