    Underdogs become top dogs in this fun-filled, rough-and-fumble comedy that`s "the best football movie of the last few years" (Larry Stewart, Los Angles Times).

    Keanu Reeves plays Shane Falco, a washed-out all American QB who guides a team of misfits assembled by veteran coach Jimmy McGinty (Gene Hackman) to replace striking pro players. A motormouth receiver (Orlando Jones), a merciless linebacker (Jon Favreau), a nicotine-wired kicker (Rhys Ifans) and more line up alongside Falco for a drive to the playoffs.

    For sultry support, there`s cheerleader Annabelle Farrell (Brooke Langton) and her ex-stripper squad. "Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever," Falco tells his team.

    It`s a game plan that works to perfection.
