A football field is rectangular, but this movie's is hopelessly square.

A fairly predictable yarn that's lighthearted and well-acted, if cast mostly with characters that are little more than tackling dummies.

By-the-numbers inspirational trudgework.

Although the film has moments when it's serious about exploring the challenges that someone in Travis's situation faces, it ultimately prefers to be just another football movie with a hokey big-game ending.

Although the Bakers, and Hoovers' connection to small-town Kentucky lends the movie a sweet, homegrown touch, it's hard not to wonder whether it would've been more compelling (and less cheesy) in more experienced hands.

From the director to the actors, there's an ease with the style here, as well as a lack of self-consciousness about the fundamentalist religious culture of the characters.

Stepping behind the camera, versatile actor Dylan Baker makes an assured directorial debut, drawing spirited performances from his seasoned cast while mainly steering clear of the usual, treacly movie-of-the week conventions.

An honest piece of work, and sometimes a touching one.
