    5.0 out of 5 stars Superb January 28, 2005
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    My Gawd, I love football.

    'Tis a sport that offers the purest microcosm of life: Play as a team--succeed; play as individuals--fail. Those of us who have strapped on the pads and grunted and groaned in the trenches know this incontrovertible truth all too well. A single unit is much greater than the sum of all its individual parts, and this stellar truism is manifested magnificently in Peter Berg's sensational film FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.

    Again, I love football, and I particularly enjoy football movies that capture the grit and dark hubris of the sport, but this film stands alone in its overwhelming ability to portray a game, a west Texas town, its residents, its players, and its shameless addiction to the gridiron to a degree that transcends every single facet of human existence. In a community intoxicated with football, in a culture intoxicated with football, in an infrastructure that lives, eats, breaths, and sleeps football, the 1988 Odessa Permian Panthers are about to embark on a spectacular odyssey that will catapult and devour them at the same time: a magical, mystical season taking the coaches and players up and down the peaks and valleys of high school sports nirvana.

    This is a film that garners attention to itself for infinite reasons. A great story, based on a bestselling book. Cinematography second to none, thanks to Tobias A. Schliessler, that gives the movie its gritty, handheld, "documentary" feel. A fast-paced, action-packed, totally believable series of scenes, augmented by an absolute killer soundtrack. And acting--oh yes, some very convincing, authentic, been-there-done-that acting.

    4.0 out of 5 stars An Odessan APPROVES October 15, 2004
    By Ashley
    I live in Odessa, TX...

    I drive by Permian High School at least twice every single day and I must tell you how wierd it was to see the camera driving down 42nd street in front of the school just like I do everyday.

    This movie did make my town look quite small, but I do think that it brought the reality of how we treat football in this town. I am not a Permian fan by no means...Odessa High School Bronchos fan here...but this movie made me think that I feel the same way about the Bronchos winning that these people felt about the Panthers. Although neither one of the teams have been involved in any sort of playoffs or state championships lately, the seats of Ratliff Stadium are still full every Friday night for the game. Businesses don't shut their doors just for the game anymore like they did in 1988...but that doesn't mean that Odessa football isn't celebrated by just about everyone...

    This movie is not your typical football movie like "Varsity Blues" or "Remember the Titans" where the players are playing for the fun of the game and every game is won...this movie highlights the reality of football taken to the extreme in a small town where hopes of the championship coming back to Odessa are real and they mean everything to these people...this movie portrays what the players actually go through to live up to the expectations of the whole town, their school, coaches, and their parents. The pressures for these young boys are real.

    I think Billy Bob did a really good job in this movie and the young guys were awesome. They brought Odessa and Ratliff Stadium to the big screen! In a town like Odessa, that is HUGE!

    I loved this movie for the fact that is was very honest and brought out the truth about a game that is loved and taken so seriously by millions.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Berg's Wise, Human Tale of Football and Small Towns... October 9, 2004
    Ever since Peter Bogdanovich, in THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, provided a comic view of a small town's total involvement in the fortunes of a high school football team (remember the verbal abuse the locals heaped on Jeff Bridges and Timothy Bottoms when they lost the 'big game'?), Hollywood has attempted, with varying degrees of success, to make the 'definitive' small town/football film.

    Director Peter Berg has finally done it, with FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS!

    Based on H. G. Bissinger's best-selling tale of the 1988 season of the Odessa (Texas) 'Permian Panthers', the film unflinchingly paints a vivid canvas of a school and community obsessed with winning, as football provides the only release from poverty and desperation. While the concept is reminiscent of Tom Cruise's earlier ALL THE RIGHT MOVES, Berg doesn't glamorize the hero or tie things up, neatly, at the climax; in real life, while victories are savored, they are, at best, a temporary 'high'...while defeats can drive rational people into irrational frenzies. The Panthers' fortunes are such a crutch to Odessa's emotional well-being, that each game becomes a narcotic 'fix' for the entire community...a situation potentially dangerous for the players, and their coaches.

    While Billy Bob Thornton has received the bulk of media attention, as the stern but fair head coach (with glowing reviews for BAD SANTA, and THE ALAMO, Thornton is having a career-defining year!), the film is really an ensemble work, with stand-out performances by Lucas Black, Derek Luke, Garrett Hedlund, and, surprisingly, singer Tim McGraw (as Hedlund's 'reliving past glories' father). The entire cast is exceptional, avoiding the easy pitfalls of simply playing stereotypes.
