Football movies. You either love them or hate them. Me - I don't mind watching them, I don't find them particularly interesting but I can survive watching one. This is one of the better ones that I have seen, probably because of the cast including Billy Bob Thornton. And it was enjoyable to watch.

I can imagine that there's not too many possibilities of what to include in a sports m... read more

The directing is pretty nice and so is the acting but, honestly, there is nothing really original here. It all depends if you're a sport movie fan or not. I find them most of the time enjoyable but so predictable. This movie is no difference but it is still worth a look.

The Ten Best Football Movies (11 movies items)

" #6 - Friday Night Lights FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS will be remembered more for the NBC television series than Peter Berg's excellent movie. Billy Bob Thornton plays the role of Coach Gary Gaines in this fictional version of the best-selling non-fiction book. Berg streamlines the more political elements of the story in favor of an underdog story about the team itself. In the end, the football action is top notch and the acting is quite good. Is it as good as the book? No, but most movies rarely "

"September 26 Wasn't sure if I would like this movie because football is one of my least favorite sports. This was better than I thought it would be. Although football isn't something for me to be excited about, I still liked this movie."

" The book on which it was based, Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream, was authored by H. G. Bissinger and follows the story of the 1988 Permian High School Panthers football team as they made a run towards the state championship."

"May 21, 2012 I had a feeling during watching this movie that I know what will happen and how it ends. First, the player have injured, then another... I waited for victory in the final. But I was "nice" surprise. A lot of sports and emotions. It was interesting story."
