While The Flintstones might have sank some people's expectations, Little Giants, on the other hand, is a step up for Rick Moranis, even though this is one of the few movies where he is somewhat typecast. He plays Danny O'Shea, who becomes resentful of his successful older brother Kevin O'Shea (Ed O'Neill, former Steelers player and star of Married... With Children and Modern Family) when Kevin doesn't pick his niece and Danny's daughter Becky a.k.a. Ice Box (Shawna Waldron), who can hold her own against the boys, so Danny creates his own pee-wee football team with Becky and the other rejects.
As cliche as the movie might make it out to be... I don't care, because my feelings for this movie are similar to Doug Walker's feelings for Bee Movie. It's an endearing and underrated family picture, and a nice suggestion for a movie to watch during the Thanksgiving holiday.
My rating: 6/10
P.S., happy birthday Rick!
