Goofs

In the several instances where the bribery money is shown, it has the appearance of real money, mostly $50 and $100 bills, but when Tom Laughlin is counting it in the final sequence, it is obviously stage money. See more »

This is Anthony Perkins at his best!!
30 November 1998 | by (marion, oh) – See all my reviews

Anthony Perkins shines as a small town basketball star who finds more than sports success at Custer College. Jane Fonda is wonderful in this morally simplistic depiction of

small town life.
