Mark Wahlberg stars as a 30-year-old who's frustrated and disappointed with the way his life has turned out. Working as a substitute teacher and part-time bartender, he takes a risk and tries out for a professional football team when the new coach announces open tryouts. Since he's never even played college football his chances of qualifying seem less than slim. However, his resolve gives hope to many of his friends and neighbors, who are out of work or fearing impending layoffs in their small Pennsylvania hometown. Also with Greg Kinnear, Elizabeth Banks, Kirk Acevedo and Lola Glaudini. Directed by Ericson Core. [1:44]

Our Ratings Explained

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
