This is a really good family movie. It is a bit of "Back To The Future" and "It's A Wonderful Life" rolled into one. There is some foul language, but not much. There are some sexual references but not overtly obvious. I would recommend it for kids 10 and over to watch with their parents. It has a good moral....do you dwell on the "only ifs" of your past or do you play the cards that you are dealt and move on with your life.

This movie is extremely good. I haven't seen such a great story telling movie in a long while. It's about a football player Scott, who is the star quarterback for his small town of Coldwater. He and his team gets to play in the State Finals for the championship. Scott and his team does defects the rival team, but at the costs of his left leg. Scott leg gets bended apart and is extremely hurt from his amazing play he did.

(What I found odd is that in the play his right leg got hurt in the play he did, but some how after the play his left leg is bended. I think this is a mistake on the director.)

Now, the movie fast forward to present time and Scott is now a framer/fireman and is family man with 2 kids and a wife. He has bum left leg and needs to be tie up with steel leg holder to keep it straight.

What is worse is that Scott is in trouble with the bank. He is at risks of lossing his farm and house to the bank, because he can't pay back his loan on time. If he doesn't come up with the money, he will lose it all. Scott is a really strong and proud man. He doesn't tell his wife or anyone that he needs help.

Everything goes from bad to worse as now his crops that he was growing and is what going to help him pay back the money to the bank is at risk of dying soon because the cold weather. The crops are slowly freezing to death and Scott needs to hurry and harvest them. Scott has no way of saving his crops, so he at the end of his rope. He decides to kill himself and let his family claim his life insurance.

At this point, Scott then wakes up and is back in high school. He realizes that he hasn't played the championship game and he has a second chance to do it all over again.

A good story....it reminded me of "Its a Wonderful LIfe". I found it amazing how (just like Friday Night Lights) the directors can take actors that are obviously much older than High School Kids...but when you put them all together it doesn't seem to come across that way. Good family film...I happened to see it in the theatres about a year ago in Texas but it never came into the midwest as far as I know. I would highly recommend this film to anyone.

Good movie that is uplifting a bit on the more aspects of the regrets than game play. Would recommend this for any younger kids aspiring to play the game.

If your family likes football you'll like this movie. Great for all ages. Actors were a little old for high schoolers though.

This movie was much better than I thought it was gonna be. The story was very well written,
the acting was all done well and Kurt Russell did a great job in this movie too.
The ending is very satisfying, in fact one of the better endings I have seen.

This is a great movie, if your a fan of stories like this. I don't know why you can't just rent it though. Like a lot of movies on Amazon instant video you have to buy them to watch them instead of just renting them.
