Nigel Gruff kicked a 65 yard field goal to win one of the games. The NFL record for longest field goal at the time this film was made was 63 yards (Matt Prater of the Denver Broncos kicked a 64-yarder in 2013), so Gruff's kick would have set - and would still be - a league record. See more »
During the bar fight when Nigel goes to kick the guy in the head after he knocked him down, he missed his head by a good couple of feet. Perhaps they shot multiple angles but decided on that one. See more »
I have to admit, my boyfriend had to drag me to this movie, and I went along with it, telling myself that at the very least I could spend the next couple of hours admiring Keanu's cuteness, even if he isn't the best actor. BOY was I suprised! This was a really funny, really sweet movie that made me laugh and laugh. Keanu's acting was better than I've ever seen, the supporting cast did a GREAT job. I go to a LOT of movies, and it has been a long while since I've seen a movie that i enjoyed this much, so I really encourage you to give it a try.
