A Different Kind of Sports Film, 11 October 2011
Author: ianlueck from United States

I caught this film at the 2011 Driftless Film Festival. Overall, I enjoyed it. It's not often you see a sports film that's focused solely on the game, and it's even less common to see a sports film based on amateurs, who have no ambitions of going pro. It's just a group of ten who play an annual game of touch football and try to have fun. There are flashes of conflict in the film, but the roots of that aren't explored a whole lot and the immediate conflicts are resolved fairly quickly. Mostly, it's just focused on the game itself, and that's pretty rare.

The cinematography is good in the sense that they vary the shots so the film doesn't get boring (which could've easily occurred). I liked the fairly natural method of acting that the performers utilized; they felt like real people anyone would know. And what makes the film engaging isn't necessarily the game itself, but the personalities of the characters, and their chemistry with each other as they make amusing comments throughout the film.

The main I'm rating this only a 7 is because the concept goes on a little longer than it needs to. After about 50 minutes, I was more or less satisfied. Still, it's worth checking out if you want a different kind of sports movie with a unique sense of humor.
