About the Movie
Nick Nolte stars in this brutally honest entertainment about one man'ebellion against the bureaucratic, manipulative world of professional football. Based on the popular novel by former Dallas Cowboy Peter Gent, NORTH DALLAS FORTY depicts Nolte as an aging ballplayer who, through a woman he meets, is drawn away from the masculine, violent world in which he has lived so long. In doing so, he finds himself at odds with the team'anagement. The excitement, humor and drama of NORTH DALLAS FORTY is heightened by its meticulous attention to the details of a football player private and public life and its authenticity on the playing field.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The leading man, Nick Nolte, has a physical authority and a clowning, irreverent manner that lend the film some semblance of continuity, even when it's about to flounder.
Fresh: Retains enough of the original novel's authenticity to deliver strong, if brutish, entertainment.
Fresh: The production is a most realistic, hard-hitting and perceptive look at the seamy side of pro football.
Fresh: Profanely funny, wised-up and heroically antiheroic, North Dallas Forty is unlikely to please anyone with a vested interest in glorifying the National Football League.

What a great flick. It shows why we still call them the Cocaine Cowboys.
North Dallas Forty
One of the best films ever showing the inside of professional football as we have never seen before. The film did not sugar coat anything. Probably one of Nick Nolte best performances, and Mac Davis - a pure natural! Someday I'll get around to reading the book. I bet it's a page turner!
