When the coach of Vince Papale’s beloved hometown football team hosted an unprecedented open tryout, the public consensus was that it was a waste of time–no one good enough to play professional football was going to be found this way. Certainly no one like Papale–a down-on-his-luck, 30 year-old, substitute teacher and part-time bartender who never even played college football. But against these odds, Papale made the team and soon found himself living every fan’s fantasy–moving from his cheap seats in the upper deck to standing on the field as a professional football player.

This movie was good. Not the best movie I’ve seen but I enjoyed the storyline and the message behind the whole thing. Mark Wahlberg did a great job portraying Vince Papale’s character and I had that warm giddy feeling in my stomach the further he got in the whole Eagle’s camp. But it ended abruptly and I guess I was waiting for a grand ending and it never came so because of that, I gave it a C.

So good, but not great.
