Goofs

During the first game, Falco gets hit in the head by one of his own teammates and goes to the ground. The camera shows Falco lying on his side in the middle of the field looking over towards the sideline, and you can clearly see the coach's khaki pants as Falco is getting up. The very next frame shows the coach on the sideline yelling over to Falco. See more »

Quotes

Pilachowski: Hey Jimmy, my tight end is... deaf.
Jimmy McGinty: Yeah, I know.
Pilachowski: Well Jimmy, how am I gonna coach a deaf man?
Jimmy McGinty: Oh, you don't need to. Brian Murphy would've gone in the first round 5 years ago if he hadn't been born deaf. Played his college ball right here in D.C., Gallaudet.
Pilachowski: But Jimmy, I need to communicate with him and how...?
Jimmy McGinty: Learn to sign, you know...
[does some sign language]
Pilachowski: Oh, horseshit!
Jimmy McGinty: Look at it this way; he'll never be called offsides on an audible.

Take it for what it is
11 August 2000 | by (The middle of nowhere) – See all my reviews

It's a sportsmovie. It's got every sports cliche in the book: "I look at you and see two men. The man you are and the man you ought to be." But, hell, who cares? It's the Major League of football movies. Sure, it's not gonna win an Oscar, but it's entertaining. A good movie to kill 2 hours. You want drama in a football movie, check out Any Given Sunday. You want fun, mindless entertainment, check this out. Props to Keanu Reeves for learning to throw like a genuine quarterback.
