    An agreeably and unapologetically lightweight late-summer blockbuster.
  2. 63
    The story of the triumphant underdog is irresistible, even when every single plot point comes marching down Main Street.
  3. Just like a low-budget football comedy, only with money.
  4. Sometimes seems longer than a rainy Super Bowl.
  5. You might want to sit out this season.
  6. Like two hours of outtakes in search of a studio audience.
  7. 0
    The worst movie of the new millennium.

    You know, I hate sports movies with a passion, but THIS takes the cake. This movie is not only the worst of the worst sports movies ever made, but it is also one of the worst movies ever made. It's actually an insult to people who enjoy movies who actually spend their time watching them. I can't tell you the last time I was so angry watching a movie. If you enjoy watching the same exact plot onscreen with the most juvenile, wretched, and laziest jokes and the most unnecessary use of popular songs, look no further than The Replacements. Everything about this movie is TRASH. From the boring plotline, to the cliched characters, to the extreme lack of any surprises, this movie deserves a trip to the local dump. Even the way this sport is executed in this movie bring it down to new lows. This movie does not deserve to be in anyone's collection or else it will get polluted. This movie deserves to be taken out of every store that sells it. It's just one of the most insulting movies I have ever seen in my life, and I beg you not to watch it! Expand
