Any Given Sunday

Any Given Sunday.
Oh, it’s hard to write a movie review three of four weeks after you actually saw the movie, but I’ll give it a go anyway…

After a few tries, I was totally unable to write something entertaining so I’ll give you an excerpt from another review instead:

Al Pacino plays Tony D’Amato, the head coach of the Miami Sharks. The once-great football team is now being managed by the late founder’s daughter: Christina Pagniacci (Cameron Diaz). She wants the team to modernize and emphasize passing, regardless of the venerable coach’s opinion. The starting quarterback, Jack “Cap” Rooney (Dennis Quaid) is injured after losing three straight games. The second-stringer goes down right after him, so Tony sends out the new third-stringer: Willie Beaman (Jamie Foxx).

Beaman couldn’t pull that win, but starts picking up and wins the next few games, keeping the playoff hopes alive and giving Cap a chance to come back for the postseason. Christina loves the seat-of-the-pants style that Beaman has, but Tony is frustrated by his lack of discipline and respect for his coaching. Beaman might not be executing the called plays, but he is winning and filling the stadium with new fans. FilmHead.com
