There isn't a football cliche "The Replacements" doesn't tackle, but its all-star cast and easygoing approach make it one of the more enjoyable recent sports comedies.

At least the ending doesn't cop out. There is no big happy ending where everyone gets a pro football gig or a big Nike ad campaign.

Wearing the same blank expression that's become his trademark, Reeves proves that after 15 years in movies he still can't deliver a joke.

There isn't a single bone of originality in its entire 110-minute running time, yet it just almost works out of sheer force of will.

Plenty of smartly-choreographed gridiron drama, as well locker-room laughs.

For a movie as predictable as The Replacements, it offers an astonishingly funny, well crafted story line capturing the visceral pounding of football.

Despite a cliched set-up, a politically incorrect position on a labor dispute and predictable action on the playing field, it comes out a winner.

The replacement players are having a blast with their brief moment on the stage, and we are vicariously enjoying it with them.
