Seven girls and a netball game - sounds interesting, yes? A newcomer to the film industry, Intan Nor Saina plays the lead role together with Rosihan Zain and Sheikh Munasar promising something different then what is normally seen on the silver screen.

"Hooperz" revolves around the lives of seven girls in a netball team: Atylia (Intan Nor Saina), Saidatul (Anita Baharum), Wan Zulaikha (Melissa Maureen), Nino (Juliana Evans), AJ (Zazleen Zulkafli), Azwar (Akma Abdullah) and Sue Lin (Dawn Jeremiah, first runner up in Miss Malaysia World 2007/2008). Their team failed to perform well at the court due to the lack of teamwork among the girls and personal issues. The presence of coach D (Adibah Noor) in the team was to help the existing coach Q (Amy Mastura) to 'teach' and change the team's luck.

This is the first time moviegoers will see netball being portrayed in a drama or a local film. The reason behind this may possibly be because the sport is getting more popular amongst high school and college students. This film will definitely bring back some nostalgic memories for those who have played netball when they were younger. Focusing on family relationships, friendships and also team spirit, we got to watch how each character face their own troubles and sadness. The comedic elements help keep the film more interesting and less dreary. Even though the film seems to concentrate on the females as a 'target audience', the men are not neglected as they are served with an eyeful of cute girls and might even learn a thing or two about the sport.

Although Intan is the lead actress in this film, she seems to be overshadowed by Melissa who is more known to the public than her. Looking at the poster, Melissa was positioned in the centre, while Intan's face was not clearly visible. This does not imply that she can't act, but as a matter of fact, her acting was not disappointing at all! In addition, she has to portray a character with a deformity on her hand. For those who don't know, the actors have no experience in playing netball. After seeing the film, the viewers will be impressed with their performance after training for only three months.

Helmed as the current teenage comedy flick, "Hooperz" promises something different that will keep you entertained.
