Bit Cheesy....but hey thats america for you!By Robert Simpson from Suffolk, England , 09 Feb 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Personally i liked this film, but I'm a huge American football fan and i think you need at least a small interest in the sport to enjoy this film. wicked performance from Jon Voight, plays the self centered coach brilliantly.
The film shows small town views on local sport, and how much pressure this puts on the barely 18 year olds to win championships, along with the pressure from their coach.
James Van Der Beek plays his role as step in-to-starting quaterback surprisingly well.
It all ends a bit cheesy, but its american! C'mon, what did you expect?!
Anyway, a definate must see for a football fan ****

Yankee at its best or worstBy gianino (648 reviews) from London , 14 Jan 2012Jon Voight is really good playing the part of the coach, Paul Walker is hot as usual and the plot is very american at it's best or worst. Not my cup of tea but it's watchable and the acting is good.
Fantastic filmBy Carlosxx (4 reviews) , 09 Sep 2011This is a fantastic film, true USA pomp and ceremony.
Nothing else matters apart from winning, reminds me of when i used to play Football at school we had to win no matter what the cost
I would completely recommend this film to anyone
Ok but not greatBy JamesMc (134 reviews) from London , 07 Apr 2008I don't think you have to know about American football to enjoy this film, I know nothing and thought it was alright. It's more about the importance of sport in people's lives then the actual sport. If it wasn't for the searing and nudity it would feel more like a TV movie then a proper movie, though.
Does have one really big thing going for it though. Nikki from Heroes in a whipped cream bikini.
A High School Fun!!By crazysexycool from Barnet, Hertfordshire, England , 09 Dec 2006I thought this was very a typical US film, about a group of high school kids and found it very predictable. Although it was predictable I thought it was good it had some funny parts but also some drama where the coach of the football team (Jon Voight) goes a bit psycho and ends up quitting in the last match. Good acting from James Van Der Beek, Jon Voight, Paul Walker and Scott Caan. Is a well written film and worth seeing if you like American Football and predictable comedy/dramas.
very watchableBy a customer from troon,scotland , 23 Feb 2006you do not have to be a fan of american football to enjoy this film.give it a go.
