Ally Mash is looking into becoming a professional tennis player. She’s been playing since she was a child and her ranking is incredibly high. When it’s time to go against another undefeated rival, she falls and hurts her ankle.

This was a very gentle and feel-good film, thankfully. After ABCs of Death 2, I’ve had this feel of grime constantly. A cute, light-hearted movie is exactly what I needed to get that stink off me.

Granted, nothing about 16-Love is particularly original. It’s a mix of the basic sports movie recipe with an even more basic teen movie recipe. Everything you expect to happen, kind of happens. None-the-less, the actors played their roles beautifully and the script delivered the ingredients well.

My biggest complaint, aside from the recipe aspect, is that I wish Josh Blaylock’s part was bigger. What can I say? I’m a rampant Video Game High School fan and Season 3 is still fresh in my mind. Best season yet!

In the end, 16-Love isn’t going to win any awards, but it’s a decent family movie anyway.
