Get Ready to Fall in Love with Alex & Me! - This Inspirational Family-Friendly Movie is Now Available to Own on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital (Review) #AlexandMe #Giveaway #AlexMorgan

Disclosure: 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.

Do your kids love soccer?  If so, they are probably all about the World Cup right now.  My youngest daughter loves soccer, as doesn't her Daddy, so they have been recording and watching the games, and were rooting for Mexico the other day when they won.  And, after Mexico won, the girls went outside and practiced their soccer skills, as they countdown the days until they start their week long soccer camp in July.

In addition to watching the World Cup on television, we had a fun soccer themed movie night on Friday, when we watched "Alex & Me," which arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital today.  The movie stars one of my girls' favorite soccer players, world champion soccer star, Alex Morgan.

Here is more about "Alex & Me," in case you have missed the movie trailer that has been airing on television and going around Facebook and other social media channels....

"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.
Eric Champnella (Thunderstruck, Mr. 3000, Eddie) wrote the Alex & Me screenplay and is also making his full-length feature debut as the film’s director. Alex Morgan serves as co-producer. Producers are Mike Karz (Blended) and William Bindley (Mother’s Day). Todd Williams (The Illusionist) is the executive producer.
Jerry Trainor (iCarly) also stars as Nigel, a less-than-reliable youth soccer coach, alongside Matt Cornett (Bella and the Bulldogs) as Reagan’s brother, Logan; Colin Critchley (Legends of the Hidden Temple) as Reagan’s soccer-playing pal, Ben; Chuiti Tiu (Nashville) as Reagan’s mother, Ann Wills; and Jim Klock (True Detective, Scream Queens) as Reagan’s father (and biggest fan), Joe Wills. Jessica Treska (HBO’s upcoming Sharp Objects) plays Reagan’s arch-rival, Claire."
Alex & Me is now available on Blu-ray (SRP $24.98), DVD (SRP $19.98) and Digital (SRP $14.99).

I love when family-friendly movies like this have a positive message, and this movie fits the bill, as it really is an uplifting story about a teenager named Reagan who has a passion for soccer and wants to be just like her idol Alex Morgan. But, when she fails to make the top soccer team she is about to give up her dreams.  But, thanks to her passion, drive and support of her family, she realizes that dreams are possible and that you shouldn't give up on them, even if you don't succeed the first time around.  Reagan could have walked away from soccer after failing and being humiliating, but her heart was for the game, and she couldn't give up on her life-long dream to the best, like Alex.

My family really enjoyed this movie, especially my youngest who said she wants to be like Alex Morgan, too.  She thought Reagan was lucky to be able to meet her idol and loved how with practice and dedication Reagan got better at soccer.  The girls also loved how she didn't give up on her dream. They said they have good and bad days at soccer practice, but couldn't imagine not playing soccer.  It is a hobby my girls have in common with my husband and many of their friends, and practice, practice, practice is the only way they have gotten better, along with dreaming big, just like Reagan.
