The leads, Denzel Washington and particularly Will Patton, are so good they occasionally make you forget the material is shameless.

Will someone please make me a great football movie?

Is perfecting the art of middle-of-the-road really what should be applauded in movie making today?

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.

Football ends racism? Yeah, right.

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

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

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.

Toss it in the bin along with The Replacements, but give it bonus points, at least, for having a social conscience.

Denzel Washington should have held out for a better script before he signed on to star in Remember the Titans.
January 1, 2000
A pity that the script is so paint-by-numbers.
January 1, 2000
Well-intentioned but overwrought.
