A maverick basketball coach must school a minor-league team of neurodivergent players in the uplifting Champions. Woody Harrelson is on reliably charming form in this heartwarming story of redemption, which comes from the co-director of There's Something About Mary, Bobby Farrelly.
The movie is an appreciably inclusive and open-minded experience that casts actors with learning disabilities to portray the central sporting ensemble. Champions recently screened in advance for Cineworld Unlimited members and we've selected a few of their responses from Twitter. Find out what they said and why you need to watch Champions at Cineworld this March.
A fun filled movie, wasn't expecting so many laugh out loud moments, certainly gave my chuckle muscles a good workout. Will have to see it again when it gets its release. Thanks for another evening out.— Blazing Minds (@BlazingMinds) March 6, 2023

Just back from the screening. Thank you! What a fabulous film. The kids were terrific. It was the fun filled, heartwarming film that everyone should go and see. Thumbs up from me!— Andy Newton (@themightyred71) March 6, 2023
Incredibly cheered up. Thought all the young performers did really well with some sassy and funny performances. And for the type of movie, it wasn't cloying and saccharine sweet either. Laughed out loud many times ( may have too). ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐#Champions— Deryck Fullerton (@dexfoo) March 6, 2023
Loved it! Typical baseline for a feel good movie. Plenty of comical moments and a nice way of making awareness of different disabilities and that we're all equal 😁— Jedd (@wander_devonian) March 6, 2023
I really enjoyed and as a disabled person it sheds some light on how society sees people— Ethan (@Ethan72096744) March 7, 2023
