Trivia

The phrase "up 'n' under" (a catchphrase of real-life rugby commentator Eddie Waring) is a term used in rugby. An "up 'n' under" is a high kick angled so that the catcher, while looking skyward at the descending ball, receives at the same time as the ball, one or more chasing players travelling at speed, into his abdomen. The intention is to dislodge the ball, or even persuade the catcher to not bother making the catch. See more »

Not too hot, not too cold...just right!
27 November 2001 | by (Seattle, United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this film on a plane ride to London and I have to say it was perfectly enjoyable. I tend to be a sucker for the "comeback kids" and underdog sports movies - Hoosiers (a.k.a Best Shot), Rudy, A League of Their Own, and the immortal 'Victory!' The characters are simple but likable, the story is predictable but uplifting, the girl is hot but with personality. All in all it was perfect for a plane ride or a fun night at home when there are no live sports on.
