In Disney Channel’s original movie, “Motocrossed,” a 15-year-old girl poses as her twin brother in order to compete in the male-dominated sport of Motocross racing. Comic complications ensue as she tries to pull off her masquerade and come out a winner, destroying gender stereotypes in the process. “Motocrossed” world premieres Friday, 2/16/01 at 7PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
Aimed at a teenaged audience, the family drama is highlighted by action-packed motorbike racing. The family prays over a meal, the siblings get along, life lessons are learned, and like “Joan of Arc,” “National Velvet,” and “Annie Get Your Gun,” the girl power message is made abundantly clear – anything a male can do, the opposite sex can do – often a little better.
