This Friday, October 21, the inspiring true-story “The Mighty Macs” opens in movie theaters nationwide. The movie is based on the improbable run by Immaculata College—a small, Catholic women’s college—at the first of three straight Women’s National Collegiate Basketball Championships.

The Catholic League is happy to agree with the following endorsements of the film:

“The Mighty Macs is a must see—not only for sports fans, but for everyone. It is exciting, inspiring, heart-warming and just wonderfully entertaining… It is a great movie that you do not want to miss.”

Tom Monaghan

Ave Maria University

“A wonderful movie of hope, commitment and belief in self and others.”

Most Reverend Martin Amos

Bishop of Davenport, Iowa 

“We are all indebted to the Mighty Macs for what women’s basketball is today. Tim Chambers [writer/director] has done a wonderful job capturing the essence of Cathy Rush [the team’s coach] and the story, and I hope everyone will be in the theaters October 21 to see this movie.”

Geno Auriemma

Head Coach, University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball
