Sucks
12 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

College football scout (Grant Mitchell), for some bizarre reason, is scouting prisons for talent. There he finds Thomas "Cherub" Burke (Eddie Quillan), who is just the most amazing football player ever. There's one slight problem with this plot right away: 5'6" Quillan has the body of a 12 year old boy. He would lose a wrestling match with Don Knotts! To take him seriously as a football player is ludicrous, to say nothing of taking him seriously as a tough con. This plot seems like something that would have made for a funny Bowery Boys movie a decade or so later. I could see Leo Gorcey playing the role of Burke. Anyway, the rest of this movie is a dud full of familiar clichés. There's a girl but who cares. There's a big game but who cares.
