Yvonne de la Vega,

In the last game against Dallas, in the drive leading to Washington's second touchdown, on the next to last play there are two defensive players (Bateman and "Smith" Wilkinson) in the offensive huddle. With the earlier injury, it is conceivable that one defensive player would be asked to play "both ways" - but not two. See more »
Hey Jimmy, my tight end is... deaf.
Yeah, I know.
Well Jimmy, how am I gonna coach a deaf man?
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.
But Jimmy, I need to communicate with him and how...?
Learn to sign, you know...
[does some sign language]
Look at it this way; he'll never be called offsides on an audible.

This movie was made purely for entertainment. What a breath of fresh air. With all the extremely dramatic, be it important, films being made lately (Life is Beautiful,etc), it's nice to watch a film that is just entertaining. The supporting cast was amazing, as an ensemble they worked together as a team should. And Keanu Reeves gave a wonderful performance - he is often under appreciated as an actor because he is attractive - but he gave a solid performance. Gene Hackman was good - that goes without saying, but I think this is the first time I've ever seen him portray a character I actually liked.
If you enjoy a good laugh, this a movie you would likely enjoy.
