Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.



We've been seeing a lot of rainy days so far this summer. Yuck! We had such great plans of spending so much time outdoors, and now we're having to rethink our ideas! What do we do when the rainy weather keeps us stuck inside!? For us, we love a good movie day and are always looking for great family friendly movies that we can enjoy TOGETHER!

We also love a good sports movie. They always seem to have the best messages--- messages that I want to teach my own children, whether they choose to participate in sports or not.

So, today I am excited to share with you a fantastic new sports movie that your family is sure to fall in love with- 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! 
An Olympic Gold Medalist and FIFA Women’s World Cup champion with a penchant for goal scoring, Alex Morgan is one of the top soccer players on the planet, currently playing forward for the United States Women's National Team and the Orlando Pride of the National Women's Soccer League. Away from the field, Morgan is also an accomplished author of “The Kicks” series, a collection of chapter books filled with wonderful messages of empowerment for young girls. The first The Kicks book, “Saving the Team,” debuted at No. 7 on the New York Times Best Seller list.
Fun, right? We couldn't wait to dive in, and it certainly lived up to our expectations. It had everything we love about a good sports movie--- a positive message, a fantastic underdog rising to victory tale, etc. But it also has that little bit of fantasy that makes for a fantastic kids movie. A poster coming to life? How fun is that? 



For those who are already fans of Alex Morgan, chances are this is going to be a must see movie. But what if you aren't the slightest bit familiar with her? Will the movie even make sense? To be honest, I know nothing at all about sports. I don't know teams, I don't know players, I don't know what is in season and what is not. Alex Morgan? No idea who she was before watching the movie... and honestly, it really didn't matter. The story very much stands alone without any prior knowledge on her or even soccer!

Overall, we really enjoyed this movie. It is packed full of fun and friendship... just as a good movie should be! Ready to experience it for yourself? Alex & Me will be available on Blu-ray (SRP $24.98), DVD (SRP $19.98) and Digital (SRP $14.99) on June 19.
