Great Movie!!!
2 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband and I saw this movie Sunday night and enjoyed it so much! He is a former Quarterback and all the football action brought back a lot of great memories for him. There was lots of action and also a lot of heart. It brought tears to my eyes more than once and the great action had me applauding during some of the riveting football moments!!! The acting by everyone was great and we loved how there were clips of the actual people when the credits rolled. We both highly recommend this movie and we know that when it comes to DVD we will add it to our movie collection!

p.s. We LOVED Remember The Titans!
