"☆☆☆☆. If you're not cheering, you should check your pulse. Stephen Hunter, The Washington Post.
Football is a game that knocks you down, then expects you to get back up. Life hit the West Virginia town of Huntington and its Marshall University even harder. When it did, Jack Lengyel came by to help pull them onto their feet by taking the job no one wanted: rebuilding the Marshall football program only months after a plane crash wiped out Marshall's beloved Thundering Herd. Matthew McConaughey portrays Lengyel, the energetic, compassionate coach of inexperienced players whose chances of victory are slim and none. They'll go with the slim. And as they do, their true life story of heart, healing and football will thrill and inspire you. It's game day. Time to play till the whistle blows. -- (C) Warner Bros, 2006, USA.
