Description: Nick Nolte is featured as a seasoned wide receiver with the North Dallas Bulls who spends most of his time on the bench. The coaches (Charles Durning and G.D. Spradlin) don't like his wiseacre attitude or his unorthodox behavior off the playing field. Unlike teammate Mac Davis, he hasn't learned how to ignore the front office. Eventua ... (more)

" #10 - North Dallas Forty NORTH DALLAS FORTY is the NETWORK of sports movies. It is a satire of the NFL and their flagship franchise at the time, the Dallas Cowboys.
