Wow, what a great family movie!!!

This movie is definitely worth your money.

The story is simple. Scott Murphy (Brian Presley) is a great quarterback for a small town high school football team that plays the Cinderella role in a state final championship game against a big time high school football team in Ohio. They end up winning the state championship on a great play by Scott, however, Scott gets severely injured, resulting in being crippled for life. We follow Scott for a while, 20 years later on the eve of a big celebration of the state championship, where all players are coming back to town for the 20th anniversary of their win. That is the first part of the movie (about 30 minutes). Scott gets somehow the opportunity to try to live these moments all over again while knowing what will happen. And we are in for 90 minutes of a very intense emotional performance by Kurt Russell, Brian Presley, Melaney Lynskey, and Christine Lahti. The script, the dialogues, the direction are all FANTASTIC. In addition, the football plays are really intense and mostly played by the actors themselves. So you also see great football too.

The movie shows what it takes to become a great person and why you need to make choices in life, you need to stick with them and never show regret. The discussion that Scott has with his mom before the game is for the books. The movie also shows the corruption at the level of recruiting. The Ohio State coach tells Scott not to play (or to ...pay attention tonight because they are sold on him, and most of the players from the other team will be on his team next year) on the eve of the championship game at a dinner, in front of his mother, in order to stay healthy and come to play for Ohio State.

I really enjoyed this coming of age movie. It should be shown to all high school freshman of both sexes. I'm leap years beyond high school and even I had some ideas reinforced. Some people wonder what they would do if they had it to do over again. This movie is about getting it right the first time around so you don't have those problems. After watching this movie a quote from Anton Myrer that came to mind was 'all a man can hope to leave is a good name.' It's true.

My family and I just watched this movie and really enjoyed it. Felt like a good ABC Family movie. Not sure why it was rated PG-13, though. There was NOTHING in the movie warranting that rating. In fact, it could have been rated G. There was zero violence, no cursing and no sex or sexual situations. Is it possible the movie was miss marked?

Why can't Hollywood make more movies like this? It was an awesome movie. My husband and I loved it. We plan on buying it on DVD.

One would think that my favorite genre of movies is horror films with what I often write about. But if you think so you'd be wrong. I love feel good movies. I think there are enough problems in this world that we all have to face that now and then we need something to jolt us out of the doldrums and brighten our day. It's why I always cite IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE as one of my favorite movies.

The movie opens in 1991 and high school senior and quarterback Scott Murphy (Brian Presley) has it all. He's been voted Mr. Football for the state of Ohio, has been recruited by Ohio State University and is about to play his last high school game. But fate has a different destiny for Murphy.

With seconds on the clock and the possible win of the game, Murphy changes the call of Coach Hand (Kurt Russell) and runs the ball for a touchdown. But as he leaps to the win, two players from the other team catch him in the air and severely break his leg. It's a career ending wound.

Flash forward to Murphy's life 15 years later. Still living in the small Ohio town of Coldwater, Murphy wears a brace on his leg, deals with the pain and is feeling the bite from the recession. Murphy works with his old coach on the volunteer fire brigade. He refuses to take part in helping with the high school team and always bypasses the school reunions. His best high school friend, now a well paid professional player and married to Murphy's high school flame, wants to get together but Murphy refuses.

With a somewhat small field of soybeans to keep his family going, Murphy meets with the bank concerning a loan that they feel should never have been made. Within days all he owns will be on the block. All he needs is two weeks till the crop comes in, but they won't budge.

I started watching this movie on a particular night that I was particularly indulged in a self-pity party. It was just one of those days that nothing went right, and by the end of the night I turned on the television not knowing exactly what I was looking for. Normally I don't watch sports movies, but I read the info on this one and thought it sounded fun and intriguing. I was genuinely surprised at how much I liked it. I am considering buying it, that is how much I loved this movie. Brian Presley does a great job playing the younger version, as well as the older version of himself. Kurt Russell does a phenomenal job at playing the older mentor role. Melanie Lynskey plays his wife and she gives an exceptional performance as well. Family friendly, anyone friendly for that matter.

I highly recommend it to those that feel like their life is not going exactly how they wish it would be going. It is a reminder of the lows and highs of life.
