The Mighty Macs DVD review and GIVEAWAY


From the inspiring true story comes the tale of one woman who just wanted to make a difference and wound up making history! When Coach Cathy Rush (Carla Gugino, Mr. Popper's Penguins) arrives at tiny Immaculata College, the women’s basketball team has no budget, no uniforms and no gym. Refusing to give up, Cathy finds help from a young nun named Sister Sunday (Marley Shelton, Never Been Kissed). Together, their relentless drive reignites the team's spirit and the Mighty Macs start conquering bigger and better-funded schools. As financial troubles rock Immaculata, the Macs charge into the championships against all odds. Can the Mighty Macs save their school with one last long shot at victory? You'll stand up and cheer for the heartwarming, incredible season that made the real Cathy Rush a Basketball Hall of Fame legend!

MY REVIEW
 The Mighty Macs is a true inspiring story that I really enjoyed and watched several times. This story happened in 1971 to a very small Catholic college who wins the basketball national championship against some major universities.
  Cathy Rush is recently married and decides she doesn’t want to be a stay at home wife, but wants to see if she has it in her to become a coach.
  She faces many challenges besides going against huge universities, she learns the college has no gymnasium on campus, it burned down a few months ago, she doesn’t receive any support from the Mother Superior and the school is in really bad financial path. Another thing she doesn’t know if she will have enough players for a team.
  After all of the problems Cathy finds an assistant in a nun who helps her in many ways and gives her hope and inspires her.
  You need to watch this to see what happens, if the team wins, if the school crumbles, if her husband hates what she is doing.
  I really recommend this great DVD for family night. It is full of fun, inspiring, never give up scenes. Besides the wonderful movie on the DVD you will see deleted scenes, The making of the movie The Mighty Macs and a real segment from the ESPN network on real Mighty Macs. Also some of the nuns in the DVD were the real players from the first Mighty Macs team. Really loved this DVD, Christian movie at it’s best.
