Just after Falco kisses Annabelle for the first time, you see Falco score a touchdown. He's hit by two defensive players as he rolls into the endzone for the score. Next, John Madden describes the replay. When Falco's touchdown is replayed on the Madden-vision, he's hit by one defensive player and rolls into the endzone differently. 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.
