Superstar Keanu Reeves (the "Matrix" trilogy, "Sweet November") stars in this fact-based comedy about the 1987 National Football League players' strike. A motley group of replacement players for the Washington Sentinels overcome all odds and put together a string of seemingly impossible victories. Co-starring two-time Oscar-winner Gene Hackman ("Heist," "Unforgiven"), Orlando Jones ("The Time Machine," "Chain of Fools") and Jon Favreau ("Made," "Swingers"). With NFL announcers John Madden and Pat Summerall.

Critics Consensus: The cliched characters and obvious outcome make all the fun and excitement amount to nothing.
Lightweight but likeable football story.
