  1. Sports movies are never easy to pull off, but Skolnick does a fine job of balancing the drama with the on-field action.
  2. Mean Machine may not have the resonance to linger in the memory affectionately as "The Longest Yard" does, but it plays well, with a fast pace and plenty of punch.
  3. After too many ''Full Monty''s, it has come to look like nothing so much as a coy ritual of emasculation.
