This is a fantasy tale so naturally some of the plot elements are just that--fantasy. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the humor and feel-good aspects of the movie, but it also can be a little too sugary sweet and predictable for my tastes.
Siena Agudong gives a most natural performance here as thirteen-year-old Reagan, who idolizes the soccer great Alex Morgan. When Reagan hits her head on a piece of furniture, one of Reagan's posters of Morgan comes to life and begins to mentor Reagan in her dreams of becoming a really good player. I might mention that Morgan is supremely gorgeous and a great athlete but her acting is a little stiff at this point.
Overall, if you take this movie, written and directed by Eric Champnella, for what it is, it can be funny and a feel-good flick that I would think the whole family could enjoy.
Alex & Me
Alex & Me
Teenager Reagan Willis (Agudong) has one dream -- to play soccer like her hero, Alex Morgan. Her bedroom is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Willis house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her prep football superstar brother, Logan. When Reagan fails to make the cut of the premiere local soccer club team and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she's certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan's poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life and everything changes.
