Disney Channel Original Movie Doubled Teamed Review and Analysis on Disney+

Blog and Video Description: In this episode of the Mattacritic, I will be reviewing and analyzing the Disney Channel Original Movie Double Teamed that is currently on Disney+. To answer the question, why am I reviewing a Disney Channel original movie is that these are quality movies, and they have a lot to say. They usually tell a good story, and they are made for kids in mind. It does not mean if an adult watches these movies, they cannot follow them and enjoy them. They can, they do a good job with having a plot, but having a message in the story they are telling. The key to any good story is having characters that viewers, readers, or listeners can enjoy cheering for. This movie does an excellent job of telling the story of Heidi and Heather Burge. These are two twin sisters who grew up in Redondo Beach, California. This is a city that is outside the Los Angeles area. It is where people who are used to being on the beach, and they enjoy that time. This movie will deal with Heidi and Heather Burge becoming basketball players. They are volleyball players to start off with. I will go over several topics in this episode. I will explain how each of these players grow and become who they are. I will explain how the relationship with Nicky Williams changes and how they will get to know Galen Alderman. I will give you my rating at the end of this episode. I hope this episode will inspire you to read, watch, and learn.

The movie will start off with Heather Burge working out in her room. Her mother Mary Burge says, "I see that the cattle are back.” She wants to drink her coffee in peace, but no such luck. Larry Burge, who is the father of Heather and Heidi Burge gets the girls ready to go to volleyball practice. The girls come down in the same outfit and Heidi is upset that Heather Burge wears the same outfit. Heather Burge is just upset at it as Hedi Burge is. Their mother tells the two girls to pick a number. They do and end up being seven. They end up picking straws and the shortest straw gets to change outfits. Heidi Burge ends up changing her sweatshirt. This movie takes place in Redondo Beach, CA in 1985. This will look different to those that are used to seeing smartphones. Heck back in 1985, you would be lucky if there were cellphones. Most people did not have cellphones at all. You would have to use a pay phone if you wanted to make a call back then.

They get to school and end up at Volleyball practice. The viewer can see how Heather Dominates against her sister Heidi Burge. Heather Burge is more into it than Heidi Burge, but it does not mean that Heidi Burge is not talented in sports. Their dad, Larry Burge wants Heidi Burge to be more like his other daughter Heather Burge. How can volleyball translate to basketball? I reviewed Big Shot season 2, which you can watch on Disney+, and that season showed how a volleyball player can play basketball. When a player makes a block, it is remarkably like how a volleyball player can score a point. Ava Navarro in the first episode of that season, blocked Louise Gruzinsky shot and that will be shown later in this movie of Double Teamed.

Larry and Mary Burge, the parents of Heidi and Heather Burge, are talking about transferring the twins to a new high school. It is called Palos Verdes High School. It makes sense as earlier before this conversation, Larry Burge was talking to a man that told him that the scouts were looking at his daughter when she was the twins’ age. He was told by that man to get your girls in larger high school where they are more likely to get more exposure. This makes sense. As Larry Burge tells his wife Mary Burge, he gave up making more money at a law firm so that he could be here for the girls. He told her we need help unless you have a rich uncle that I do not know about. The girls will need scholarships. College can be expensive, and most people need help if they want to go to a good school.

The girls will get home, and their father Larry Burge tells both Heather and Heidi Burge, they will be going to a new high school called Palos Verdes. He told them that they were tall and athletic and that they had a gift. He explains to them you got your mother’s genes in how she was a great swimmer, and you have that ability in how you can play volleyball. This is understandable as he tells them that they need to get noticed by the college scouts and land a scholarship at a good college. Heidi Burge gets mad and tells them you will not make go to this Palos Verdes High School. Heather Burge is upset but understands.

The twins of Heidi and Heather Burge got to this new high school of Palos Verdes. They find out that they love this school. Heidi Burge sees the options this school offers, and she enjoys every minute of it. She finds out that this is good. She decides to want to take Italian for her foreign language. Heather and Heidi Burge are getting starred at because they are so tall for their age. Heidi Burge will meet Zoey and she helps Zoey with the sign. Heidi tells her that she would like to sign up for Drama camp. She and Zoey hit it off.

Heather Burge gets to the gym and takes the stack of volleyballs in the place that allows a person to move several balls. She gets to the gym, and she runs into the coach of the Palos Verdes high school girls' basketball team. She is unsure about this. He tells her, give it a chance. The coach of the Palos Verdes high school basketball team needs her help as the only talented player he has is Nicky Williams. Heather Burge tells him that she needs to ask her father if he will let her play basketball.

Heather Burge with Heidi Burge are talking to their parents at dinner about what happened in school. As Larry Burge, their father tells them, who knew that the adjustment would be this easy. Heather Burge tells her father Larry Burge that she plans to try out for the basketball team. Her father tells her that is a great idea. You will stay in shape and be ready when you get to volleyball season. Larry Burge asks his other daughter Heidi Burge if she did that. Heidi Burge says no she did not. She told him that she was too busy having a life. Heidi Burge tells both her parents of Larry and Mary Burge that she is going to join the drama club and that she got the part of the tin man in the Wizard of Oz. Her mother Mary Burge tells Heidi Burge that is great. Larry Burge wants Heidi to be more like her twin sister Heather Burge and go out for the basketball team.

The movie will progress with Heather Burge trying out for the team. Nicky Williams is upset that she is not the star anymore. She lets Heather Burge that this is her team, and she wants to be the only player on the team that is the star. Heather Burge will later block Nicky Williams' shoot and if you look at it, you can make a comparison in how Ava Navarro blocks Louise Gruzinsky shot in Big Shoot Season 2 episode 1. That ability to block is no different than a volleyball player scoring a point. It is the same motion.

The movie will progress, and it will have the viewer find out later that Heidi Burge’s father Larry Burge wants her to go out for the team. After they play basketball, Larry Burge tells her that your future is in sports, not a school play. Heidi Burge blames her sister Heather Burge at first. Heidi Burge tells her twin sister, congratulations I am back in your shadow. I hope you are happy about this. Heather tries to tell her sister that she has nothing to do about this. This was all their dad Larry Burge’s idea for Heidi Burge to play on the basketball team.

Heidi and Heather Burge will be at each other’s throats after this happens. They are fighting like sisters are known to do. They need to get over what happened and deal with what it is. That is easier said than done. Heather and Heidi Burge need to put in the socket.

They eventually must move thanks to Nicky Williams who was jealous of the two twin sisters of Heidi and Heather Burge coming to play for Palos Verdes High school girls basketball team. This will cause the girls to realize eventually what happened and they will have some growing pains with the team. The team will learn that this is all stupid. The Burge sisters and Nicky Williams will be playing with the rest of the team in New York City, and they learn that they have a lot of work left to do. As Galen Alderman tells the three girls of Heidi Burge, Heather Burge, and Nicky Williams they need to learn to work as a team. Yes, Heidi and Heather Burge learn to have a good relationship with Nicky Williams. As Nicky Williams tells them, you least have parents that are there for you and care enough about you to be there for you. She wishes she had what they had. This is why she was acting out in the movie because her dad is not there. The viewer does not know what happened to Nicky’s mother.

The movie will progress with team and the two twin sisters facing challenges. Heather Burge will get her ankle twisted as she was practicing wanting to be the best she can be. She is mad at her sister Heidi Burge having a better game than her that night. Her mother later tells her, there was a swimmer that was always better than me. You must do your best. Do not worry about if there is someone else better than you. Yes, that will happen. When I swam myself, I was not the best swimmer, not by a long shot, but I loved it, and I did my best. When I learned martial arts such as Taekwondo l learned that there was someone better than me, but I always did my best.

As not to be revealed, nothing more will be revealed here. The movie will help the viewer understand what happened to the two twin sisters.  

I will give you, my rating. I give the Disney Channel Original Movie, Double Teamed on Disney+, a 10 out of 10. It was fun and does an excellent job of telling the story of what happened to the two twin sisters of Heidi and Heather Burge. They do go to play college ball and later professional ball. This happened thanks to the twin sisters of Heidi and Heather Burge because they went to play basketball for Palos Verdes high school. This movie and the women that played basketball helps in showing girls that they can play sports and they do not have to do just have to go in fields that is expected of them. They can play college ball and professional basketball. If players like Caitlin Clark, who recently broke Pistol Pete Maravich’s scoring record did not have influences such as players that came before her, who knows if the world would have gotten to see her play. She is an awesome player. These girls of Heidi and Heather Burge were awesome talents, and this does not hurt that they existed.
