Unable to watch this DVD on my UK player - total waste of money.
Why sell a region 1 DVD to a UK website? I would never of thought that you must check the region for a DVD before buying it from amazon.co.uk - lesson learnt.......

In 1975 the Philadelphia Eagles NFL football team was on a 14-year losing streak. They had no heart and they had disappointed a city that needed them. Then a down-on-his-luck 30 year old out of work substitute teacher in Philadelphia, played by Mark Wahlberg, is abandoned by his wife, and biding time as a part-time bartender when he answered an open call for tryouts on the Philadelphia Eagles NFL football team in 1976.

This open call was an act of desperation by a new coach and is what this film is about. This inspirational true story is that of Vince Papale who gave his heart and soul to the team and brought them back to life. He will never be forgotten in Philly, he may not be in the record books, but every Eagles football fan knows him. Vince Papale was making all this happen at the same time the fictional movie "Rocky" was released...so the fans of the Eagles saw that dreams do come true. A lesson we should all remember. I recommend this film for the whole family.

A typical feel-good Hollywood movie that's been done before so many times. Amazingly, that doesn't take much away from this production as it achieves its task of providing entertainment. It's a good stay at home movie for a relaxing night at home.

Mark Wahlberg plays Vince Papale who has recently lost his wife because 'he'll never go anywhere in life' as well as his job. During a time when life is hard among his friends and family the one thing that brings them all joy is watching their beloved Phili Eagles football team play. When the new coach starts open tryouts Vince is talked into going only to be picked for further training.

Thus begins the journey of a lifetime for Vince Papale. Incase you're rolling your eyes thinking 'same old story' take heart in the fact that this one is actually TRUE!!

It's 1974, and the men in Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg)'s neighborhood are having a tough time. They're either laid off like him or on strike. They do still have each other, though. They love their backlot football games, meeting at the tavern, and cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles, who have also had a lot of bad luck. A new coach (Greg Kinnear) comes to the Eagles and holds an open try-out. Anyone can come down and try for a place on the team. His pals urge 30-year old Vince to go, and the rest, as they say, is history.

I'm not much of a football fan, but I did like this movie. It's a Disney movie so there's nothing off-color, and it's all about trying your best, sticking together, and having a good heart. The cast is excellent and the script really held my interest. There is a lot of hard-hitting (American) football action that should please fans. I liked that we got to know and care about Vince and his friends and their gritty neighbourhood seemed real. A very muddy football game filmed in slow-motion is especially good. Not only is this a good story, it's a true story, with a winning combination of action and emotion.
