“There is one good scene in this movie, and itu0026#39;s pretty good. Anthony Michael Hall has just been on a recruitment tour of private colleges who want to give him football scholarships and he has come back to his hometown to negotiate a deal with the athletic director of a public university. The interplay between the two, especially the unspoken lines, is done beautifully.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOther than that, this is a pretty standard (sub-standard) teen flick posing as a cautionary tale. I think this movie wanted to be a comedic version of u0026quot;All the Right Movesu0026quot;, but didnu0026#39;t have the guts to tell a real story.”
