Better off reading the book
23 January 2006 | by leblumaxSee all my reviews

Better off reading the book if you want the story.

The football scenes looked like a bunch of JR High kids. Slow and sloppy.

Also, realizing telling the whole story would have taken 4 hours at the pace of this movie, there was WAY TOO much left out and to the imagination.

I absolutely LOVED the book, but was bored silly during the whole movie after the first 10 minutes which I admit did choke me up. But if I hadn't read the book even that would have bored me. I would still have thought it was a poor to only OK movie.
