Football Films Friday Night Lights
opens this weekend in theaters. So this week it's all about Football.
1) What's your favorite football movie?
There aren't really a lot of "great" football films out there--at least none that I've really seen. I'm going to have to go with Necessary Roughness.
2) Do you think films accurately portray foootball players?
If they follow the book, Friday Night Lights has potential to be a very accurate portrayal. Remember the Titans did pretty well, but wasn't exactly a touchdown pass. Probably the best portrayal was for the small screen with ESPN's Playmakers.
3) What football movie was so bad, so far fetched, so poorly acted, or so over dramatized that it was painful to watch?
The Waterboy. Henry Winkler, how far you've fallen....
BONUS) If you were making a football film, what actor would you want to portray your star quarterback? The coach?
I can say I wouldn't want Keanu Reeves from The Replacements. I think Dean Cain would be a good choice since he actually was drafted by tee Buffalo Bills to play for them. As for the head coach, I'm not really sure.
