Ok.  This movie is basically a watchable sports movie based on a true story. The story is very predictable and there are no real starts outside of Jim Caviezel who to me is most famous for playing Jesus Christ.

The story bounces all over the place and drags at some parts, although I thought the football scenes were good and believable. The head coach turns down big money jobs to coach college to continue to be a highschool coach, and I just don’t get that, but that is true. Caviezel  is perfect for the role and the movie is a good one to watch with your kids if they are involved in organized sports. If not, then there is really nothing to see here because the movie is average at best.
