Did You Know?

Goofs

When Scott wakes up and tries to start his truck, the fuel gauge needle can clearly be seen showing a full tank. In the next seen after the truck won't start - a second or two later - the needle is on empty. See more »

Quotes

Coach Hand: Do you know what the future is Scott? The future is just a bunch of what you do right now strung together. And what you are doing now is giving up. And trust me there is no future in that. Scott, I hope you don't give up this easy in life, because it gets a hell of a lot harder than football.

first didn't want to see it, but turns out to be great!
17 September 2012 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I saw the rating of 5.something and I usually only watch what is 7 or higher with at least 3000 votes. Since I played American football in Switzerland I thought i had to give it a try.

Great movie! I don't understand why this is so badly rated. Of course there are some cheesy scenes, but what really took me in was the meaning of the whole movie. I can't believe I have to watch hundreds of non sense movies until I find something like this.

Take some time to watch this movie and think again about your life! There is a great study guide on their website.

Also nice to watch with your girlfriend/wife.

Hope you will like it too! Many thanks for making this movie!
