Here is the plot description for “The Mighty Macs”:

“The Mighty Macs” is based on the incredible true story of the 1971 to 1972 Immaculata College team that started in obscurity but became the original Cinderella story in women’s basketball. This team of trailblazers went from barely making that inaugural tournament to the first dynasty in their game.

And Cathy Rush, the woman who was ahead of her time, became immortalized when she was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008. “The Mighty Macs” stars Carla Gugino as Cathy Rush; David Boreanaz as her husband, NBA referee Ed Rush; Marley Shelton as the young assistant coach, Sister Sunday; and Academy Award, Emmy Award and Tony Award winner Ellen Burstyn as Mother St. John.

The movie trailer for “The Mighty Macs” can be watched now below.

Favorite Cinderella Story

Especially since I just watched it again recently, “Akeelah and the Bee”…talk about overcoming odds…your community, your schoolmates, your family…to display the talent you have inside!

My fave Cinderella Story

Spiderman’s origin story—the unpopular, picked-on nice-guy nerd who goes from zero to cool, butt-kicking, crime-fighting superhero gifted with the proportional strength, agility, reflexes and speed of a spider.

Which film is your favorite Cinderella story?

Rookie of the year. It is a about a kid with a golden arm and of course the Chicago Cubs who never win.

My favorite Cinderella story

My favorite Cinderella story is that of my Grandmother’s life. She grew up with very little in a third world country, suffered greatly through WWII & the loss of her family, moved to the United States barely knowing anything American or even English, and yet still managed to be the most kind, generous, good-hearted woman I grew up with. She is my inspiration and I hope to one day be half the wonderful person she was.

Favorite Cinderella Story

I would have to say my favorite was Ella Enchanted. It was funny and of course the main character wins her prince.

I would have to say my favorite Cinderella story would be the orginal animated Cinderella movie from Disney. A bunch of people tried to do it again but with no avail.

Cinderella story

Well it’s not movie yet, but I’m pretty sure one day will be, The young British Royals. Kate Middleton is a perfect example of a modern Cinderella.
