Cliched? Oh, yes.
However, it educated the non-sports fan somewhat on American football formations, recruitment & more modest goal of having a competitive instead of winning team short term.

Another good family film that promotes wholesome values yet remains entertaining.

A very sad story and overall very well done but not my favourite football movie. I wouldn’t watch again.

A West Virginia town loses most of its main sources of revenue when most of the members and supporters of a varsity football team are lost in a tragic accident. Matthew McConaughey is a coach who is hired to help build a team with very little support from surviving townspeople. There’s no way you can watch this movie and not feel some kind of emotion.

Matthew McConaughey as the dynamic coach of Marshall's football team is truly believable. This actor is impressive!

I can only imagine that for most people it would be devistating to lose a child however a whole group many from the same community or surrounding area all the lives they touched outside of their families through out each week. It seems as though you wouldn't really know just how to proceed, what's too long, what's not long enough, many of the can's and can not's have changed without warning. They do come back admirally though although not without struggle. Good movie, good family-team inspirational story.
