Movie Info

Everybody's All American covers 25 years in the life of college football hero Gavin Grey (Dennis Quaid). When he marries campus sweetheart Babs Rogers (Jessica Lange) and is picked up by the pros, a happily-ever-after denouement is predicted by friends and family. It is clear from the outset, however, that Grey is going to have to do a lot of growing up over the next few decades. Babs does her best to keep in step with her husband's career and mood swings, and in so doing becomes the "parent" in the family. John Goodman also stars as Grey's best buddy, and Timothy Hutton is on hand for a romantic-triangle subplot. Everybody's All American is based on the novel by longtime Sports Illustrated scrivener Frank Deford. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Everybody's All-American

  • Apr 08, 2007
    Great movie with an excellent cast and a sadly tragic ending.

    In a similar vein to Raging Bull, this is the story of a egotistical football stars journey from top dog to has been. Not bad, but all the sports movie cliches are still apparent, and Quaid is no Robert DeNiro.
