About the Movie
Small-town banker Jack Dundee (Robin Williams) has never been able to live down the fact that he dropped an important pass during a crucial high-school football game. Likewise tainted for life is the team's star quarterback Reno Hightower (Kurt Russell), now a garage owner. Fed up with living his life under a cloud, Jack hits upon a brilliant idea: he will stage a rematch-13 years after the fact—with the members of the rival team. Trouble beckons when Jack's father-in-law announces that he's rooting for the opposition. Jack is determined to win, and in pursuit of that goal he pushes his former teammates to hitherto untapped brilliance.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Such a rouser that it almost makes up for the incomplete passes and stopped runs that precede it.
Classic Robin Williams
It's a great sports movie with intelligent humor. Williams plays the lovable loser and Kurt Russell is the classic jock who like wine gets better with age. "Who says you can't rewrite history?" Well worth the 5.99!
One of my favorite movies
this is a great comedy classic robin willams and kurt russel and at a cheap
Not sure why I like this movie so much. Just never get tired of it. A cult classic for sure. All of us have that weird ambition to hit the re-do button on a goof from our past and this is a perfect role for Robin Williams comedic talents. Had to get it on my iPhone.
