It's like a standard sports movie, but with every point made twice or three times -- as if we'd never seen one before.

There are good sports movies, indifferent sports movies, and bad sports movies. The Replacements in nestled somewhere between the latter two.

Football flick has a great lineup, but fumbles the ball.

The joke about the cheerleaders recruited from a strip club is funny at first but gets musty the ninth time it's repeated.

It's a puppy-dog of a movie: not worth much, but at times quite amusing and always trying its darnedest to please you.

I could've sworn I'd seen Keanu Reeves running around in a football helmet before, but I couldn't find the film on his resume.

This negligible comedy might as well come with a bouncing ball so members of the audience can recite the dialogue along with the actors.

The incisive, close up photography by The Sixth Sense's Tak Fujimoto outclasses the story by yards.

Plenty of red meat here but also so much script rot that both ought to be recalled by the FDA.

How do you respect a film whose idea of Jock Jam is I Will Survive?

The games, while plenty rowdy and profane, aren't very realistic.

You can write the script yourself, just think nursery school. Then simplify.
