This isn't my favorite football movie but it is a worthwhile watch.
Matthew McConaughey does a good job at playing the role of a quirky coach who knows just what it takes to motivate people and open up doors for great opportunities.
The show is somewhat of an emotional roller coaster because it is sad at times but also has its happy moments.
Matthew Fox does a good job as the assistant coach who is too hard on himself for a tragedy that happened before McConaughey's character becomes head football coach.
You can watch it as a family or by yourself and you'll feel good about it.June 8th, 2012 · Details
