Seems too easy, too feel-good, too lush. There's a theme-park feel to it, as if the powers-that-be had decided to open a Rosa Parks trolley ride at Disneyland.

I didn't believe the movie, or my tears, for a second.

Football ends racism? Yeah, right.

Will someone please make me a great football movie?
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Not as powerfully boring as Gone in 60 Seconds, less anti-erotic than Coyote Ugly, this is a civil rights tale for People's Court times -- the verdicts are speedy, vague and unconscionable.

Remember the Titans resembles a sports re-run of game plans that once seemed fresh.

Boorish and flatulent.

When the hard battle for integration is served up as a feel-good package, we've all been bamboozled.

Yakin's hackwork is so slickly manipulative and preachy it has the tone of a politician's TV commercial...

Maybe it's all true. But one is always a little discomfited when life, or a movie, imitates weary melodramatic patterns this slavishly.
January 1, 2000
Beneath its rah-rah rhetoric and pigskin proselytizing, it's no more provocative or thoughtful than a Hallmark greeting card.
January 1, 2000
I'd hate to fathom a film community dominated by Bruckheimer material.

A wonderful crowd pleaser, and as long as you don't expect too much of it or think about it too deeply, it will remain a favourite.

With such volatile and interesting subject matter, we could have gotten more than a safe Really Good Bad Movie. We could have gotten a Good Movie.

Denzel Washington should have held out for a better script before he signed on to star in Remember the Titans.

While male bonding surely can be a route to tolerance, in this case, it ends up looking painfully small-world-after-all-ish.
January 1, 2000
While various critics have pointed out the film's numerous historical inaccuracies, the social and political sugar-coating that takes place is even more disturbing.
January 1, 2000
After weeks of hating each other, the Titans inexplicably seem to unite over a Marvin Gaye song and a contest where they rank out each other's moms.
January 1, 2000
Once kicked, the ball deflates midway through the goal posts, and then lies there sagging for another 45 minutes.
