Great Short Movie
2 November 2001 | by (Los Angeles California USA) – See all my reviews

I remember this movie came out when I was little kid. I watched it because it was about two high school football players, and I watched anything that had football in it. This movie took me by complete surprise because it was about a face in the crowd who was gay. I think this is the first movie I ever saw that coverd the topic of homosexuality as being OK and that gay people don't bite. This movie sure did paint a different picture for me.
