Ego, thy name is Robert Conrad
13 May 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you want to see what a true vanity piece is, and if you can somehow find this little gem you are in for a treat.See the undersized, yet unstoppable, 53 year old Robert Conrad, this films director AND star, make the football team. See him, through a stunning turn of events, make it to first string. Event though he has the throwing style of every computer nerd kid you ever made fun of in high school,. Robert Conrad is smarter tougher, and better than anyone else in the world. Just ask him..he will tell you, through the medium of a tv movie. Not only this, he is a succesful businessman, great student, and has a bigger heart than a bull elephant. See Conrad single handedly rescue a decaying football program, save the coaches job and bring huge amounts of money to the school. Finally there is the world famous Conrad sex appeal,in full display here. Watch the gorgeous young college coed decide that Conrads intensity and athletic prowess are just what her little hormones ordered. In the end learn about the most amazing Conrad feat of all, his honor, as he turns down a nubile young thing in order to preserve the sanctity of his blessed marriage. This movie is a comedy of hubris and self love that this planet has not see since the ancient Greek myths of Narcissus. Thank you Robert Conrad for showing the world what true macho is. Even if it is wrapped in a tiny little non-athletic package.
