How can I get a copy of this movie?
11 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If anyone can help me I would be most grateful! It's my favorite sports movie of all time and I have been trying to obtain a copy for years. I think the depiction of the importance of high school sports in small town America is well done in this film. Also, Ben Johnson was just so believable as the meddling, intrusive father who wants the dream of a college football scholarship more than his son, played by Gary Busey. Larry (JR Ewing) Hagman was also quite convincing as the callous, self-serving coach who puts winning above any real concern for his players. This movie is filled with very believable characters and common truths about the spoiling of sports as they become under the control of selfish and obsessed parents and coaches.
