7MATE, Fri­day, 7.30pm, PG ( 2006)

Take one true story, add a hunky Hol­ly­wood star and a gen­er­ous serve of cheese, then knead in an against- all- odds hero, sug­ar­coat it and bake ’ til it’s soft and heart- warm­ing. There you have it: a typ­i­cally in­spir­ing Dis­ney film based on a real- life sport­ing hero. Here, the hero is Vince Pa­pale ( Mark Wahlberg, pic­tured), a down- on- his- luck bar­tender who turns up for open try- outs for his beloved NFL team, the Philadel­phia Ea­gles. Greg Kin­n­ear, El­iz­a­beth Banks and Kevin Conway fill the sup­port­ing roles and, al­though it’s not ex­actly mem­o­rable, it’s en­joy­able and fam­ily friendly.
