A Perfect Bellydancing Football Film
16 April 2000 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

Happened to catch this movie on cable (the Fox Movie Channel) for those curious few.

It's a clever, 60's comedy with then-youngsters Richard Crenna and Shirley MacLaine that had the perfect blend of interests for my partner and myself -- football (for me) and bellydancing (for her). An early (1964) forerunner of later football films THE LONGEST YARD and M*A*S*H and a somewhat worthy successor to the Marx Brothers with a surf guitar beat. Throw in an able cast of well-known actors (Jim Backus, Peter Ustinov, etc.) with the tweaking of the Notre Dame football legacy and it's a nice little "lost" chestnut of a film that hasn't been shown often enough.
