[after watching Bobby tackle a player]
Look at Bobby tackle. I haven't seen a tackle like that since Joe Montana.
Joe Montana was a quarterback, you idiot.
I said Joe Mantegna.

Another silly but genuinely funny outing from Sandler
Adam Sandler's brand of humor may not be award winning,but it doesn't have to be.He creates another memorable character here,and surrounds himself with a good cast,including Henry Winkler,and Oscar winner Kathy Bates.You would be hard pressed to find a film about the sport of football that could be considered a great one,but the majority that I have seen are entertaining enough,and this one is no exception to that. If you are smart,you won't view this movie with an expectation of greatness,but if you want genuinely funny silliness,this is a film for you.It's a worthy edition to the comedy section of anyone's home library.
