I am watching "Remember The Titans" right now. Man the only football movie that even comes close is "Rudy". The sports movies that are based on a real life situation are so much better than the ones that are made up.
Most of the sports movies that are true stories are not so much sports movies but movies about the human condition and overcoming adversity. That makes for a killer story that everyone likes.
Not using this as a blatant advetisment for a movie being filmed right now, but one that should rival the best of the sprots movies will be "We Are Marshall"
Mathew McConehey (sp) Head Coach After crash
Mathew Fox Assistant coach befoe and after crash
Arlen Escarpeta QB Reggie Oliver
David Straitham Univercity President
Anthony Mackie Nate Ruffin Team captain (one of only a few upperclassmen left)
Kate Mara Head cheerleader
Kimberly Williams-Paisley McConehey's charictor's wife (country music star Brad Paisley's wife)
director McG (of Charlies Angels fame).
Sorry about the blatent advertisement for this movie, but I am a graduate of Marshall U that is the subject of this movie. a university that lost many sons, daughters, fathers and mothers in aplane crash in 1970.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
