Movies and the like, I am known to some as a Media God...
Avoid at all costs! Seriously.
I'm normally not compelled to write reviews for the movies I watch, even considering the vast amount of garbage I've seen. But this movie...
The acting? Not the most horrible I've seen but nothing any major studio would ever pay anyone money for. The camera work? Passable. Neither the best nor the worst of anything I've seen before. The plot? Was there one? Watching this film felt like somebody did a 3 page treatment or short story and decided to stretch it into a 90 minute movie.
My desire to be a completionist and stick with movies without quitting really does me no favors in the end sometimes. It's a rare movie that I've quit watching without getting to the end, but this is one of them. I just kept hoping for something to happen and it never did.
As someone on the message board said, nothing really happens within the first half hour & it's all downhill from there. Never ending dream sequences that I feel would make Gandhi himself use an expletive and demand a refund.
There's no back-story, no character development, and the male lead (while maybe a finer actor elsewhere) annoyed the hell out of me for at least eighty-eight minutes.
The Wicker Man with Nicholas Cage used to be the movie I quoted as the worst I had ever seen, but it has now officially been dethroned by Deadrise.
For the sake of your sanity, please avoid watching this movie. If this review can save just one person from having to go through what I did then it was worth the time it took to write.
Necessary Roughness (1991)
In the pantheon of football movies it's not the best, but not the worst by far. It's a decent comedy for the generation when it came out. The ensemble cast worked well together and anything with Kathy Ireland in it can't be all that bad. Sinbad also looked like someone who may have played football before going to teaching. 6/10
