Failed college coach Norman Dale (Gene Hackman) gets a chance at redemption when he is hired to direct the basketball program at a high school in a tiny Indiana town. After a teacher (Barbara Hershey) persuades star player Jimmy Chitwood to quit and focus on his long-neglected studies, Dale struggles to develop a winning team in the face of community criticism for his temper and his unconventional choice of assistant coach: Shooter (Dennis Hopper), a notorious alcoholic.

    Hoosiers is one of the first sports movies I saw and is a standard for how I look at other sports movies. Gene Hackman is very memorable as the coach and it takes back to the way basketball was before playground basketball took over. There is some language at times, but other than that I don't recall much else that would be inappropriate for a younger crowd.

    Each parent should pray they have a son or daughter that is privileged enough to be coached by someone like Coach Dale. This is what sports is really about-building people, not athletes.

    The best basketball movie ever made and just one of the best sports movies ever. I have seen it about a billion times but it still captures my attention every time I watch it. Even if you don't enjoy basketball, you will find yourself rooting for this small town basketball team. Everyone should see this movie at least once in there lifetime.
