Editorial Reviews

Boys of Fall is a football documentary about life. Executive Producer and Country Superstar, Kenny Chesney began shooting footage and football interviews for his new single "The Boys of Fall" in fall 2009. After shooting footage of friend and New Orleans Saints' coach Sean Payton at his high school alma mater, Chesney decided to expand the video into a full documentary film. Over the next several months he filmed youth football games, high school football games & locker room speeches as well as interviews with football greats. Interviews include Troy Aikman, Bobby Bowden, Mack Brown, Tony Dungy, Brett Favre, John Madden, Peyton Manning, Joe Namath, Sean Payton, Bill Parcells, Nick Saban and Jim Tressel. After an introduction that includes Payton speaking to his old high school team in the locker room before a big game, it depicts how those who do not go on to long, storied careers in the NFL, like high school wide receiver Chesney, the lessons learned on the field help to shape who they are today.

Though the National Football League is "king of the hill" right now in terms of organized sports, this documentary takes a look at football on the high school level, with input from coaches and players from all aspects of the sports' history.

The great thing about this DVD, based on the Kenny Chesney song of the same name, is that everybody can relate to its message, which is the spectacle of the action under the friday night lights. From the fans to the coaches, and the players to the pep band, nearly everyone was has lived can remember those innocent high school nights and not help but be caught up in a wave of nostalgia.

What really hooks you, though, is the input from high-profile guests like John Madden (good to hear that voice again!), Brett Favre, Troy Aikman, and a long list of famous coaches from the college ranks, to name but a few. In this relaxed, chit-chat type setting, all the pressures of winning and losing are cast aside, and the simple joy and life experience of playing the game are touched on. When all the X's and O's and the business aspects of the game are stripped away, it quickly becomes clear the power that team sports can have in not only shaping teams, but also individuals in other aspects of life away from the football field.

Basically, this is just a great little documentary to watch if you are sick of the pomp and circumstance of the NFL and just want to get back to football's roots: a group of guys coming together as individuals to form a team and try to win instead of lose together. It really isn't any more complicated than that, despite all our attempts to make it so. Thus, this is the perfect gift for the pigskin-head in your family. It may not remain in the entertainment center for good, but it will make an impression on the first viewing, that is for sure.

Awesome Documentary. The commentaries, the music, and the film clips captured the spirit of what it is like for these athletes playing under those Friday night lights. Great video for current football players, but an even greater video for ex-football players and parents of all of these athletes.

I've played high school and college football and I must say this DVD blew me away. I literally almost teared up in the realization of how much I love this game and how much this is like life. This documentary is just unbelievable. Everything about it. A must see for ANYONE. It leaves you changed by the end of it in a way that is just amazing. I've watched it numerous times and get goosebumps still!

Based on the awesome reviews I had very high expectations for this "movie". They were too high.
This is not a movie and not even a documentary. Instead its a somewhat random collection of guys talking about how much they love football and their positive memories from playing it in their youth. It's kind of like being a fly on the wall at a party where you don't know any of the attendees and you are just listening to their stories. If you have actually played football yourself, you have your own stories and can get together with your actual friends and have a real party.
Those looking for actual football movies should look to classics such as the following:
- Rudy, Radio, Blind Side, Facing the Giants, Longest Yard, and the comedy Waterboy

for those of you that like the song by Kenny Chesney, "The Boys of Fall". This documentary is a must, lots of football names faces that are easily recognizable that tell the story within the documentary. it was worth every penny! super fast shipping too, received 1-2 days before the expected delivery date.

Absolutely great documentary - very cool that it's done by Kenny Chesney and his buddies (with the use of his 50M$ jet!!!) If you're an athlete, or former athlete, I'd suggest not watching it with anyone that you don't want to cry in front of!!!!

Would buy again over and over.

I'm not trying to post this to help amazon make sales, but no matter how you get your hands on this film, get it because it is truly inspirational for young athletes. They might not understand it at the moment, but try to understand the film as an adult if you watch it.
