Against the backdrop of high school football and track, two brothers in a small Southern town face escalating problems with two different world views, straining - but ultimately strengthening - the bonds of brotherhood.
It's 2019 and we're still being force fed offensive and tired stereotypes of men and women, like geese being prepped for fois gras. It's just boring now. My two boys (22 and 15) have more insight into women than this film tried to give, and they represent a generation that stands with, and respects, women more than any other before it. And it's gratifying to see, but its so dismaying to witness films like this that are still painting men as unfaithful, insensitive and "all the same", and women are labelled as ballsy for treating men appallingly and emancipating them. I appreciate that there was supposed to be a redemption arc to the protagonist, but it gets lost at the expense of the same old tired cliches for cheap laughs. Even the films posters had her holding a pair of tennis balls..*sigh* I'm glad that so many men are writing reviews in recognition of this, we are moving forward, but films like this keep trying to keep us in the dark ages. So tone deaf given the progress we are all trying to make.
