The biggest game in the world comes to the smallest town in America in this action-packed comedy about a group of bored misfits who become local soccer heroes. A winning family film from the people who brought you ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD, THE BIG GREEN will elicit big grins from the whole family! Nothing ever happens in Elma, Texas ... at least not until British schoolteacher Anna Montgomery (Olivia d'Abo of THE WONDER YEARS) arrives. Determined to motivate her students, Anna decides to form a soccer team. She enlists the aid of out-of-shape sheriff Tom Palmer (Steve Guttenberg, THREE MEN AND A BABY), who agrees to coach the team so he can beat his old nemesis, the ruthless coach of the big city bullies, the Knights. THE BIG GREEN scores with parents as well as with kids, who learn the importance of being a team player ... and a good sport!|One of the film's "stars," Ernie the goat, needed very little coaching for his scenes, which involved some of his favorite activities: eating paper, riding in a car, and running around the school track with the kids in the film.
