RE: Disney Movie about Cross Country
I'm glad Disney is paying attention to cross country. I agree with the comment that any cross country film is better than no cross country film.
It looks like a feel-good Disney sports movie that will be as realistic as "Remember the Titans" "Mighty Ducks" "Invincible" "Million Dollar Arm" "Glory Road" etc. etc. We can hope it will be more realistic than "Air Bud" or "Angels in the Outfield".
The target audience is older kids, younger teens, and adults who like cheesy sports movies, of which, I will admit I'm one. Most of these movies are not masterpieces, but I think they're fun.
Carping about the realism of little details is kind of beside the point. There has never been a strictly realistic running movie and and I doubt there ever will be because it wouldn't be especially interesting. For that matter, it would be hard to name any sports movie that is entirely accurate. You just have to accept this and enjoy sports movies for what they are.
