4.0 out of 5 stars Hawn in top form, 27 Nov 2007
This review is from: Wildcats [DVD] [1986] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
WILDCATS was a funny and entertaining comedy with Goldie Hawn at the top of her form as a high school track coach, who wants more than anything to coach football (her late father was a football coach). She finally gets the opportunity to coach a high school football team at a tough inner city high school where the majority of the students are Africa American or Latino. Of course, Goldie's Molly McGrath meets the obvious resentments from high school boys that you would expect finding out their new coach is a woman, but she does eventually win them over, even at the risk of losing custody of her two daughters to her uptight ex-husband (James Keach). Nothing new or inventive here but Goldie lights up the screen presenting a smart yet flawed character trying to live her dream. Nipsey Russell has one of the best roles of his career as the principal of the school that hires her and there are some very funny moments provided by the members of the team, especially Woody Harrelson, Nick Corri, and in a star-making turn, a very young Wesley Snipes. Bruce McGill scores as a sexist coach from the opposing school, Prescott and Jan Hooks has some cute moments as GOldie's ex-husband's new girlfriend. I love the scene where Goldie outruns the boys on the team and calls them "pussies" and the rap song over the closing credits is hysterically funny. A terrific feel-good comedy starring a great actress at the zenith of her personal charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars American football at its funiest, 18 Jan 2006

Cheesy soundtrack , Coach turns the team around to prove they aint quitters. Its all been done before , and since ( see Little Giants) , but arguably not as well as Wildcats. With a kick ass line up of young actors including: Wesley Snipes & Woody Harrelson , this movie makes all the touch downs and converts all the field goals. Ideal for a wet Sunday afternoon if you need cheering up.

This review is from: Wildcats [DVD] [1986] (DVD)
It shows what women can do and it is a classic film, that you can't really get for this region. But amazon did it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacing videos!, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this in the 80s and 90s and needed to replace videos.
Recommended to anyone who likes Goldie Hawn's earlier stuff...and to catch sight of a young Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson (possibly others too). Kookie.

This review is from: Wildcats (Amazon Instant Video)
Wildcats is often an underrated Goldie Hawn movie. It's an 80s film at its best. Basically someone working hard to get what they want against all odds which happens to be a female football coach being accepted in a male dominated sport. Goldie gives a classic comic performance supported by young early roles by Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes

It's a feel good Classic 80s movie that deserves a look even if just to see Goldie Hawn rap with the cast in end credits
