When the Game Stands Tall movie review

This movie was very inspiring. Based on true events, it tells the story of an amazing coach who strives to teach his team every year, more than just how to play great football. He always says to give "your perfect effort". Coach Ladouceur treats all his athletes with love and respect. He teaches to them love each other as brothers. The story follows several of the team members through the difficult times they faced on and off the field. 
In addition to being a coach, he's a husband and father who finds himself learning hard life lessons. While he tells his students to stay honest and transparent, he hides his smoking habit until a heart attack becomes his reveal-all. He has to make the choice of following doctors orders to not coach until he heals. While doing this, he becomes closer to his family despite his sons anger at not having his father as his coach. 
It's a well written story with plenty of football scenes. I'm not a sports fan, particularly about football, but even I enjoyed it. Even had some humor tossed in. It could be viewed as a family movie though be warned there are scenes where parental guidance is definitely suggested for violence and perhaps language. Otherwise a great movie.
