Many of the greatest sports films all have one thing in common: they aren't just about sports. When the Game Stands Tall is a movie based on a true story that chronicles what happens when a high school football team loses its 151 winning streak. The gripping football sequences coupled with emotional layers in the film make this movie more than just a simple underdog sports film.

"I wasn't interested in making a movie just about football," says director Thomas Carter.

When the Game Stands Tall is a movie based on the real-life high school football team, the Spartans. After losing their streak of 151 games won in a row, the players learn important life lessons from Coaches Bob Ladouceur and Terry Eidson—and through the making of the movie, the cast learned a couple of lessons as well.

Michael Chiklis, who plays Eidson in the film, can relate to the pressure of a winning streak, especially as an actor in the ever-competitive world of Hollywood. "There are clichés such as 'You're only as good as you last hit,' so yes you feel a level of pressure. They're clichés because there's a level of truth to them," says Chiklis. "But when all's said and done, you have to have clarity. You have to say, 'This is what I do, this is who I am, and what I want to do is tell great stories. »

Los Angeles, Jan 22: Actress Kristen Stewart is annoyed with her inability to master the bowling game because she is usually "good at everything".

"I cannot bowl, and it really is very frustrating. I'm awful, and it sucks because I'm really kind of good at everything," femalefirst.co.uk quoted the 23-year-old as saying.
