Storyline

It's Superbowl. And there's a lot of drama, one of the players, Dave Wolecki, has been so preoccupied with the game and if his bum knee will hold out until the game, has been completely ignoring his wife. And McCauley, the team's star quarterback, is being courted by a management firm, and the man the firm has assigned to get him into the firm has been told that if he doesn't get him, he will be out. But that's nothing compared to the real drama. There's a killer running around. It seems that the syndicate doesn't want the highly favored Cougars to win. They tried to get the team's trainer to drug or incapacitate some players, and when he refuses he is killed. So, the team's manager has to try and find out who the killer is, before he does some real damage. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Only Super Bowl movie I've seen
6 August 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

I, like everyone else in the country watch the Super Bowl every year. I'm not even a sports fan, but I don't think most people are. Anyway, it's still weird how this is a movie all about and yet the movie stops right before the game even starts! Yeah, I don't even think we see a single football in this movie! I'm not the biggest fan of sports movies. I was at least expecting this to be a story about how a guy worked hard to be in the Super Bowl. There's this weird pointless plot involving a bunch of people dying that has nothing to do with anything.

I barely remember anything that happened. I never realized how much Tom Selleck looks like Burt Reynolds. It's amazing they had anyone recognizable in this. This movie is just plain boring and needlessly padded. There's just nothing memorable in its extreme blandness. It seems to go on too long and it has mostly nothing to do with the Super Bowl. They could have just had it about any football game and it would be the same! *
