Cast & Crew
Charles Stone III is a craftsman with brains and taste, an instinctive sense of where to put the camera and the discipline not to belabor scenes.
A superlative B movie -- funny, sexy, and rousing.
Offers little that's surprising or groundbreaking, but, because the script is smart enough not to insult us and to develop a group of interesting characters, the act of watching the film is an entertaining experience rather than a tedious exercise.
I love that we get into this world of marching bands. We barely see any football players -- we see the top of their helmets as they're getting out of the way.
[Has] an abundance of heart and humor.
