Really good film overall. Gene Hackman is fantastic in the lead role and truly makes this movie. Other than that, it pretty much follows the sports movie formula, but does it so well that you can ignore the carbon copy of a plot. Easy to seeReally good film overall.

A small high school in a little town in rural Indiana, a broken down coach, a former player now the town drunk; doesn't sound like the makings of a classic. As with most "down on their luck" movies, everyone gets a second chance. And thisA small high school in a little town in rural Indiana, a broken down coach, a former player now the town drunk; doesn't sound like the makings of a classic. As with most "down on their luck" movies, everyone gets a second chance. And this movie is special because most take that second chance and succeed. At the end of the movie, you see a photo on the wall of the real coach and players. What! you mean this is a true story! I don't have many DVDs but this one is in my collection. Expand
