    Talk about your end arounds: A sappy speech makes everybody live as happily ever after as possible -- given the circumstances that there are a lot of alcohol and painkillers involved. In Frank Deford's book, the football hero tries to kill his wife before taking his own life. Something's wrong here.

    Based on a Frank Deford novel, this one covers a good chunk of a university and pro football star and his wife through ups and downs as he goes from being a star to life struggler after his pro career and she is forced to step up and provide for their family. The sets and uniforms are exceptional from the 50's to the 70's.

    I watched it again recently and it didn't age as well as I might have thought but it was still wonderful. Dennis Quaid and Jessica Lange both shine here.

    Yeah, it's a little overly sentimental. But it takes itself seriously and takes its characters seriously, so you have to give it that. I think it's still pretty watchable after all these years. Maybe more so, now that the present time in the film was over twenty years ago.

    Very poignant story of the rise and fall of a football star. Good music and great actors.
