About This Item
Family Entertainment label. Danny O'Shea has always lived in the shadow of his older brother, Kevin, a Heisman Trophy winner and a local football hero. They live in their hometown of Urbania, Ohio. Kevin coaches the local "Pee-Wee Cowboys" football team. Despite being the best player, Danny's tomboy daughter, Becky, nicknamed Icebox, is cut during try outs because she is a girl. Also cut are her less-talented friends, Rashid Hanon who can't catch anything , Tad Simpson who can't run , and Rudy Zolteck who's overweight and quite flatulent. After being ridiculed by the players who made the team, she convinces her dad to coach a new pee-wee team of their own. At first, Danny is reluctant to do so, but later accepts in an attempt to show Urbania that Kevin is not invincible, and that there is another O'Shea in town capable of winning.
Moranis and his co-star, Ed O'Neill, are another two decades older, and the kids who took the field are all grown up. As you're about to see, starring as a child in a movie does not a Hollywood career make. In , the lovable kids that made up the Giants and the Cowboys are not all still making movies—and they're definitely no longer playing football. Indeed, the band of bullies and misfits that we fell in love in have gone down an incredibly wide range of different life paths. But in our hearts, they'll forever be remembered together as the cast of Little Giants. The golden armed, toilet paper-throwing prodigy Junior Floyd , played by pre-teen heartthrob Devon Sawa , kept right on rolling after the completion of Little Giants. Sawa hit it even bigger the next year with Casper , then won a Saturn Award for Final Destination in Sawa's prowess on the football field in Little Giants apparently translated to his real-life acting career, as he has been one of the most successful of the cast's alums.
