Crooked Arrows: Find Your Spirit

Time out for a mini-history lesson. One thousand years ago, the Indian tribes in New York invented a fast-paced game called lacrosse. Or so we learn in this perfectly serviceable underdog-team-does-good movie.

This time around the game is different and the driving force is more than just the thrill of the win. The Sunaquat Indian high school team, despite its glorious history, doesn't seem to know which end of the lacrosse stick is up.

Enter Joe Logan (Super hunky Brandon Routh) one-time lacrosse star turned casino sell-out. Can he find his inner Indian, coach the team to victory and restore honor and glory to the tribe?

Of course, you know the answer to that one. But does the predictability factor matter here? The Movie Slut cheers "No." Maybe she's a sucker for strive-to-win and find-your-true-spirit flicks. Maybe everyone should be.
