Synopsis

During an NFL football players strike, a washed-up college quarterback, a crazy L.A. cop, and a soccer player are hired to head up armature replacements for the Washington Sentinels team. Disorganized and not quite in the same league as those they are replacing, retired coach Jimmy McGinty (Gene Hackman) has his work cut out for him.

Dove Review

The film has some funny moments and even a couple of life lessons about self-respect, loyalty, teamwork, and the importance of second chances, but there is much obscenity, crudity and lewd sexuality and innuendo. And yet again, we have a movie where a man vomits on screen, not once, but twice. When did this cease to be gross and suddenly become a mainstay in comic movies? Here are several football films that entertain without the objectionable material: Horse Feathers, Little Giants, Rudy, Trouble Along the Way and Brian’s Song.
