In the same vein as "Rudy", the film follows Vince Papali played by Mark Wahlberg as he attends open tryouts for the Philly Eagles and becomes the only unlikely player to make the team. With a little bit of friendship, a touch of love, and a lot of determination Wahlberg carries the team into one of the years better feel good movies.
I would be lying if I said I didn't get a little bored. I guess the important thing is I felt encouraged walking out of the theater.
The coolest thing was hearing my dad talk about how he remembered when the real story happened while he was in high school.
The acting was descent and the story inspiring. There were also some cool new approaches to football cinematography. What else could you ask for.
