Trivia

Washington Sentinels running back Walter Cochran (played by 'Troy Winbush') not only wears the same number as Chicago Bears legend and hall-of-famer Walter Payton, 34, but the first time he gets the ball he does a single long jump-stride in open field before he takes of sprinting, Walter Payton's signature move.

Great movie!
14 August 2000 | by (Ottawa Canada) – See all my reviews

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.
