Storyline

This ensemble comedy follows the Pullham University Bluecocks, a small liberal arts college with a Division III football program (the lowest division in the NCAA). When the head coach unexpectedly dies, the future of the flailing football program is in jeopardy, as they have not had a winning season in decades. In a desperate attempt to create some media attention for the athletic program and the university, President Georgia Anne Whistler hires known lunatic and felon, Coach Rick Vice, for what could be the football programs final season. Vice, an overly aggressive redneck racist, quickly becomes the team's and athletic director's worst nightmare. Vice especially butts heads with Mitch DePrima, a reluctant quarterback who was drawn to the college thinking he would play ball as a big fish in a small pond, only to find himself riding the bench in his final year. Navigating between an insane coach, meat-head teammates, his male cheerleader roommate and the sexy new sports trainer, Mitch... Written by Anonymous

This movie was non-stop funny...
29 January 2013 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

For such a low rating I was expecting something terrible, but what I got was side splitting humor...literally choked with funny dialogue and situations. The fact that it's a football movie and I hate sports, yet I loved every minute of it speaks volumes to me. I don't think that Andy Dick gets enough work in Hollywood, because without his delivery, I can see the dialogue falling flat and not being anywhere near as humorous. I loved the movie 'Jack & Jill' with Adam Sandler, so if you didn't like that, chances are you won't like this either, but seriously, I laughed from beginning to end. The coffee cup with an image of Hitler that had the text 'FAIL' on it was some of the detail that made me laugh sooo much. More comedy writers/directors should pay attention to the small gags because it's that sort of thing that pays off upon repeat viewings for the slower viewers. If you don't find the movie that's fine, humor is subjective, as is beauty, and I'm glad everyone has different views otherwise we'd all be chasing after the same things. Enjoy this one if you can.
