You're a bartender who dreams of playing in the NFL. It could happen, and it did to Vince Papale, who played for the Philadelphia Eagles from 1976 - 1978. In this feel-good, well-made, real-life tale, Mark Wahlberg's in good form as Papale, who got his chance when Coach Dick Vermeil (a well-cast Greg Kinnear) held open try-outs for positions on the team's roster.
OH and btw, Jerry Maguire and Varsity Blues are my least favorites. I can't stand Tom Cruise and Dawson needs to go back to the creek!!
Ok, I know I am just a chick and all but I would like it to be known that the following are some of my all time favorite football movies, because yes guys there are women out there that absolutely love watching a bunch of men in tight pants beat the hell out of each other for a ball and the chance to dance for a crowd. These are NOT listed in order of favorites I like them all!
3. Necessary Roughness (underdogs)
4. The Replacements (love the jail scene)
5. Remember The Titans
6. The Longest Yard
7. The Blind Side
8. The Waterboy (football and funny as hell who can resist)
9. Friday Night Lights
10. Any Given Sunday
12. The Wildcats (a girl coach )
13. Brian's Song
14. The Gridiron Gang (The Rock!!)
Wow not to impressed with the list. I mean Any Given Sunday at the very least should be top 5 if not Number 1. It got beat out by Friday Night Lights and Jerry Maguire.. Jerry Maguire?? Great movie but not a football movie. Who makes these lists? I should. I made an account just to post that because this is just ridiculous. I know rudy belongs in the top and I would have to review some of the older movies but man this is just upsetting. I watch a lot of movies and the only thing I can say when i think about Any Given Sunday is how well made and emotionally appealing it is.
Pacino's speech alone, should put Any Given Sunday in the top 10. Rudy is a dork
i believe gridiron gang, friday night lights, waterboy, longest yard, and the express should be in the top ten together
I like most of the list though I'd probably throw in "The Last Boy Scout" instead of Necessary Roughness - but thats just me. My Top 10 would look more like this:
1. Brian's Song
2) We are the Titans
3) We are Marshal
4) The Longest Yard
5) Friday Night Lights
9) North Dallas Forty
10) Knute Rockne All American
I think its was a pretty accurate list except no one can believe Adam Sandler can play football, let alone sing at a wedding.
How different are these major characters in David O. Russell's new film from ones the actors have played before? Let us...
