The Replacements: A great football movie

The Replacements

Released: 2000

Starring:  Keanu Reeves, Gene Hackman, Brooke Langton, Orlando Jones, Jon Favreau, and John Madden

Okay, I might be a bit biased because a friend and I were at a Ravens game when they shot some of the goal line scenes during halftime, but this is one of my favorite football movies.  It’s got lots of laughs, a little drama, and it’s not Keanu’s worst performance ever.  Somehow, I don’t think I own it on DVD, but I watch it every time I find it on the TV.

Here are a couple of the good scenes…there are more, but I’ll just stick to these two.

“I’m afraid of spiders”

“I will survive”
