Publisher's Description

A triumphant story about team spirit and courage, based on a true story.

The year is 1973, and Jim Ellis (Academy Award Nominee, Terrence Howard), a college-educated African-American, can’t find a job. Driven by his love of competitive swimming, Jim converts an abandoned recreational pool in a Philadelphia slum with the help of Elston (Bernie Mac), a local janitor. But when city officials mark the Philadelphia Department of Recreation for demolition, Jim fights back - by starting the city’s first African-American swim team. Recruiting troubled teens from the streets, Jim struggles to transform a motley team of novices into capable swimmers - all in time for the upcoming state championships. But as racism, violence and an unsympathetic city official threaten to tear the team apart, Jim must do everything he can to convince his swimmers that victory, both in and out of the pool, is within their reach.

Special Features include: Director Commentary, Deleted and Extended Scenes, and Music Montages

    This is worth watching. My children have seen it a few times and don't question the few bad words, but instead they question the events that occur in the movie. Over all its a great movie.

    A member of our church brought this movie on a bus trip. A few minutes into the movie the improper language began. I was completely shocked! We immediately pulled the movie. My children and other children were on the trip. I don't understand why this movie is being marketed on a Christian site. I hope other Christians don't purchase this with that expectation.

    I really enjoyed this "overcoming the odds" movie. It was very well done. It does have a few bad words in it, so definitely would use Parental Guidance if watching with children.
