True-Hearted Vixens

Mylene Moreno's 2000 documentary profiles a group in their 20s and 30s who joined the Women's Professional Football League, enticed by its profit-sharing scheme. The film devotes a great deal of time to the nitty-gritty of forming the first two teams—from recruitment to debates over names (the Vixens, the Minx) to possible sponsorship from Hooters—focusing on two players, a mother who frets about her future and a leader who comes out despite her dislike of the dyke athlete stereotype. Moreno's approach is PBS standard—lots of talk, presented dully—but there's enough fresh information to sustain one's interest.” 57 min.
