"Still Waiting for that Comeback"

Horrible watch, won't watch again, and do warn against watching.

As the best example of signs a movie is bad, I'll mention some of my favorite things:

I'm happy to see the beautiful Noureen DeWulf, but still mad she wasn't Jasmine.
Stacy Keibler makes a surprise appearance.
Melora Hardin look great in this.
Wishing Brooke Nevin was Ashley Benson made me think of better movies.

Honestly, Frank Caliendo was the funniest part of the movie, just by doing John Madden impersonations.

David Koechner and Carl Weathers added nothing to the movie, Shannon Woodward's confused lesbian scene was honestly funnier than the rest of their performances put together.

MAYBE if you just LOVE parodies, AND MAYBE if you just love football, then this might be bearable to watch.

It just goes too far out of its way to try to make jokes that don't land.

Who says football isn't funny.

Football may not be played on the college or professional level this September, so the best thing bis watching movies about football, There's Rudy. Any given Sunday, Necessary roughness, Then there is the movie "COMEBACKS " It is a must for sports fans, It shows "Rocky in his twilight years trying to make a comeback. If you want to be a head football coach this movie is lesson in how football should not be played as a gladiator but as a team having fun. This movie is similar to " The Replacements, But believe me it's a lot more fun to watch.

For all sports movie fans!

Hilarious movie! Not for everyone but most people I’ve shown this movie to (all sports fans) had loads of laughs. Basically it’s the “Scary Movie” version of sports movies. Creates parody on films such as Bend it like Beckham, Coach Carter, Dodgeball, and some football movies, etc.
