Was this a poor movie = yes. Were there some silly acting scenes = yes. Were some of the football scenes unrealistic = yes
Do we still talk about it because as corny as it was, it had enough very good scenes (actual Tulane stadium game footage, Al Hirt, Bourbin Street, 1969 flavor) in it to make us want to see it again= YES!
I first watched NUMBER ONE in 1969 as an 11 year old and I just finished watching it again at 50 years of age with my wife.
I read somewhere that Charlton Heston ranked this movie as one of his favorites.
