A rag-tag bunch of nobodies has to square off against the unstoppable professionals of the best local youth team. It is a great story, but it has been done to death. If you're a fan of Will Ferrel, you will like this movie. He is very funny in it. The movie also tells the story of the relationship between father and son with both comedy and touching moments sprinkled in. Robert Duvall gives his usual great performance. Mike Ditka gives a pretty funny performance as himself. He played exactly what his image is. If you go to this movie expecting to laugh, you will feel it is worth it!

I just wanted to say that what you are doing here is wonderful and I support it 100%.

We need more people like this to help our children all over the world. Children are being exploited everyday and in everyway not only by strangers but by parents also. We need to put a stop to this at once and I think that this prgram will help do that.

Through my own experience I feel that parents should share their children, why should our children pay for our mistakes why should they be to "blame" we women do this, we take it out on our children, we are so angry at our spouse that it only seems logical to take it out on our children.

I went throught a horrible ordeal as a child for my parents were fighting over me all the time. My dad was a good man I would have rather lived with him.

This program if giving a chance will change all this legal battle and give kids a chance to still be with both parents, I believe our children deserve it. I would have given the world to have my exhusband around to help me with our kids. I raised my children on my own, there was never a custody battle for he thought me to be a great mom, but nevertheless, he should have been there for them, not me.

Anyway I leave you with this and in hopes that the right person will read it and take it to heart, keep up the great work because I believe that as soon as the word gets around, this will take off like a rocket.

Have a blessed day

Spoken like an Angel from above...:)

You got it...

I can only pray more and more parents, organizations fighting with one another, political leaders fighting with one another, and the Media - Film -TV-Radio-NEWS Anchors will wake up and understand how important the TRUTH about SHARED PARENTING - really is - to our CHILDREN's Future's in America and around the WORLD...:)

Weve tried it for over 30 years of Family Law - one way - WE CAN try it another - for a CHANGE?

Thank you for your kind comment Ms Theresa...:)!
