Perhaps "low budget" but BIG hearted and unpredictable with large life lessons!
Verified purchase
Loved it! Totally believable small town characters from the very first scene to the last. Mac Davis is wonderful, complete with his six-pack of IBC Root Beer. Low budget does not have to mean low quality. The acting was FAR better than I have seen in so many predictable, trashy and over-budget movies that depend only on foul language, violence, sex and NO plot to get people to the theater. This movie has none of that.So many great quips and lines taken from real every day life. If anyone can watch it and not come away learning something, ANYTHING, big or small, then no movie will be good enough for that critic. Watch it yourself and see "the magic" of imagination.

It appears to be redone from its original form, but it is still a good film.

I remember seeing this film at a local film festival some years ago. However, it was a different film then. I am pretty sure this has been re-edited, and probably some of it re-shot. A few of the scenes I vividly remember from the original were not there, and there's definitely some material I do not remember from the first time I saw it. It is still a rather delightful story, and worth a look

Good clean fun and life lessons to boot!

Who doesn't like a feel good story?! This one made me smile and made me look forward to what would happen next. Does the guy get the girl? Does the team get back together? Does the announcer punch the neighbor whose dog continually poops on his lawn? Life lessons abound in this great movie that could be set anywhere in the US.....except in the South and we LIVE for Friday night football! Watch it and you won't be disappointed!

POSSUMS - MAC DAVIS - FUNNY LITTLE SATIRE - I ENJOYED IT.
Verified purchase
POSSUMS. I AM A MAC DAVIS FAN, SO I BOUGHT THE MOVIE. A FABLE OF A HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL ANNOUNCER WHO COULDN'T GIVE IT UP, ALTHOUGH THE CITY DROPPED THE FOOTBALL PROGRAM. HE CONTINUED TO BROADCAST, USING PLAYS HE HAD MADE UP FROM WATCHING THE TEAM. HE HAD MANY OF THE TOWN STILL TUNED INTO HIS WEEKLY PROGRAM, AND AT THE END, HE DECLARED THE POSSUMS (HOME TOWN HIGH SCHOOL TEAM) THE STATE CHAMPIONS - AND OH OH, HERE COMES THE COACH OF THE REAL CHAMPIONS --- YOU MUST BUY THE MOVIE TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED.

Bought as gift for someone from Nowata, OK, where movie is set. However, not much about the town other than its a really small town in Oklahoma.

Throw it to Eric!

The best part of the whole movie is Eric, the unlikely hero of Nowata.
