Welcome to "Movie Trailer Tuesday - my weekly blog feature where I share movie/dvd recommendations by posting a quick blurb and movie trailer for you to check out. 

What have you been watching lately? Feel free to share in the comments below...


McFarland, USA is a movie from Disney that created a lot of internet buzz when it came out last year. From the previews, I thought it looked like a great story and wanted to check it out, but somehow never got around to it. I finally caught it on tv the other night and watched it with my husband. It definitely did not disappoint! This movie is a moving, feel-good story that the entire family can enjoy. By the way, it is based on a true story which makes it even more inspiring.

Jim White and his family move to the small town of McFarland where he has taken a new job at the local high school. After a bumpy start, Jim starts to see some real potential in a group of Latino students and convinces the principal to let them form a cross country team - a first for their school. Through their hard work and dedication, they are able to form a bond and reach for goals they've never before thought possible.

Rated PG
