Product Description

DVD is national ESPN primetime premiere edit.

Sports documentaries don't get any better than The Last Game, which seems likely to remain the greatest film ever made about the undiluted thrill of high school football. You couldn't write a Hollywood script better than this riveting, real-life celebration of Central Bucks West--the reigning champions of Pennsylvania high school football--and the team's passionate hard-ass coach of 32 years, Mike Pettine Sr. The year is 1999, and as CB West storms its way toward an astonishing, undefeated three-season record of 45-0, we witness the many facets of an unfolding drama: star fullback Dustin Picciotti rises to prominence with an abundance of cocky self-assurance; former CB West player-turned-rival coach Mike Pettine Jr. prepares to battle his father's team in a crucial game; and Pettine Sr. wrestles with the decision to retire after this, his 33rd season. It all culminates in a final championship contest during which Picciotti and two other valuable players are injured--an escalating sequence of events that's guaranteed to have you white-knuckled on the edge of your seat. Given the pure, non-professional nature of high school football, the raw energy of this low-budget, shot-on-video production, and the volatile personalities involved, The Last Game reflects the spirit of CB West: It's just about perfect. --Jeff Shannon

Customer Reviews

What can I say about this movie!
Marlon Lloyd
It depicts a twist like no other film, having a father and son competing for a title that either would be proud to have the other achieve.
L. Bowman
This is by far the best football movie/documentary I have ever seen.

Having played on the North Penn team that lost to CB West in the film.(twice i might add:-(. I wanted to see the behind the scenes of that season and I was amazed at the entire movie. Personally to see that particular team and the perfection they had off the field, ABSOLUTE mistake free football I was amazed at how the players acted off the field. It was like watching two different worlds. It also shows how great of a coach Pettine Sr, really is. The movie is terrific in every aspect. If you like football and are a fan of high school football there is NO reason you shouldn't own this film.

This is the real deal. There are several films out now about Prep Football, and some are a waste of your time. This one accurately shows the emotion of both coaches and players, as well as some great game footage. You'll wish you were a season ticket holder at C.B. West.

This movie starts off a bit slowly with some character building and some background views of the area and the football program, but before long you can see where its all heading, to a big showdown, Father v Son, undefeated CB West, against the only other team that seems able to hold a candle to them, coached by the son of their Coach.

Great footage of that match , and then each step down the State Championship road gets more exciting and more intense.

This film is truly one in a million- if you like football, you will love it for the excellence of the action. If you don't love football- you could still love this film because it centers on the drama of a family- a father and son who must play each other- as coaches of the #1 and #2 team in the state- and the wife and mother stuck in the middle.
This film got 4 stars from USA TODAY and was called "one of the best sports documentaries ever made" by the Los Angeles Times. Check their website if you don't believe me- [...]
This is a rare, once in a lifetime movie- I am not exaggerating.
Get it! See it! Share it!

..this film deserves all of the praise lavished by USA TODAY, LA TIMES, AINT IT COOL NEWS, as well as the directors of other sports movie legends...
IF you ever played football, or, if like me, always wondered why they did it, this film answers it all while leaving me( and soon you) breathless during the games of this epic champion filled season

"The Last Game" relates a rich human story while taking us into the surprisingly ruthless, disciplined world of high school football. This riveting, highly personal film fascinates on several levels: the brutal sense of competition felt even at the high school level (Coach Pettine is no pussycat); the senior Pettine's struggle to decide whether it's time to close his admirable run as coach; and finally, the unusual, awkward dynamic of father and son going head to head as rival coaches. Surprisingly gripping and intense, "The Last Game" is one match-up you won't soon forget.

This is by far the best football movie/documentary I have ever seen. It is hard to believe that this story is actually true; in fact if I didn't see it with my own two eye I would not believe it. This film was brilliantly filmed and beautifully done! If you like high school football or even football in general this movie is for you! I highly recommend this film to everyone! You wont be able to leave you seat!!

The best football documentary ever made. I've seen them all and they cannot even come close to the feel of this movie. If I did not know any better I would think this film was fully scripted.

"best sports film ever made" - la times
Yes, I was there. It was even more exciting than the film shows - freezing cold, tension growing with each play, unexpected role star player played, crazy, wild unpredictable ending (to say the least)
