It seems that now critics are even entering the football realm. My knowledge of what makes a film great, differs greatly from the so called critics, I even thought Saving Private Ryan was best picture. I do know football though, and none of them can mach my understanding of this great game. Yes, the film is far fetched, but what film isn't? Iron man football, going both ways, is difficult to do, but many high-schools across the country have to do so in order to field a large enough team to compete. What this film does, that so few others can, is lift your spirits above the playing field. Appriciation for the integrity of college athletics is the underlying aspect of this film, without sounding contrite. The realism comes from the fact that they are simply trying to win a game, not a national championship. Success is all too often measured in wins, this film measures it in laughs and good feelings. I watch this film every August, to get in the mood for football season. I reccomend that every football lover does the same. P.S. this would be easier to do if it were in DVD format, hint hint!

Well here's a movie that had SO much potential but somehow just didn't quite make it. Don't get me wrong, it's a decent movie and I smiled thoughout most of it, but alas I never really laughed out loud (not good for a movie billed as a comedy and had so many comedic actors involved...i.e. Sinbad, Rob Schneider, Larry Miller, et al! As I sit here and think, the only true time I really laughed out loud was at the end as the referee recounted Eric the Samuri's blatant fouls after he karate-chopped through the defense...now that was inspired!). The other actors give it their all, and some of the characterizations are quite endearing, but the by-the-numbers script (i.e. ubiquitous bar-room fight, loser team wins the big game, etc) really lets them down. For instance, the scrimmage game between the team and the convicts is an opportunity for real laughs that's just wasted! And the ultra-priggish Dean is a tad TOO priggish...to the point of sqeaking when he walks...sheesh. But as the other reviewers mention, the films saving grace is Bill Conti's score...it's wonderful...it, more than anything, got me going...there were certain montage and musical sequences that were great, like the teams first few defeats, and the introduction of Lucy's kicking prowess. Overall, "Necessary Roughness" is a good movie that could have been great. But not to knock it too hard, I have to say that when Roger Ebert reviewed it, he hit the nail on the head when he said that this film had "charm"...well he was exactly right...there's a lot of chemistry and fun in this movie, and it's suitable for all ages which is nice (and rare!), but after it's over you too will realize that it could have been so much more.

OK, I admit it. I know nothing about football. I watched this movie solely to see Scott Bakula. It's a shame to see such a talented bunch of actors (Bakula, Kozak, Elizondo, Loggia) in this contrived mess. The college is in Texas, yet NO ONE has a Texas accent. Jason Bateman's character exists only to make a pertinent comment at the right moment to make Bakula's character turn the Jeep around and head back to college to pull off his one last triumph for the team and get the girl. And don't get me started on the transparent manipulation of putting Kathy Ireland in football pants to kick a field goal. Speaking of transparent manipulation, Bakula looks pretty good in the football pants too. Watch this movie only if you adore football and can ignore the other stpuid plot points.

I like a good sports movie as much as anyone, particularly when it involves an underdog. "Necessary Roughness" features a huge underdog -- a cheating Texas college forced to play football without scholarship players. With Scott Bakula as the aging quarterback and Kathy Ireland as the kicker, how can you miss?
Well, the characters are paper thin, and the dialogue should be familiar -- it features every cliche ever used in the history of sports movies. Still, there is some value is seeing Ireland on-screen, and Bakula is hard to dislike. Most memorable: Rob Schneider's hilarious calls from the pressbox (fumble...fumbleaya...fumblerooski). Just don't look for too intelligence out of "Necessary Roughness," because it simply isn't there.

Format: DVD
this movie is allegedly a comedy.so where did all the laughs go.did
they forget to put them in,on the version i watched.as a football
movie,it is mildly entertaining,i guess.maybe i'm just a stick in the
mud,with no discernible sense of humour.or maybe this movie just isn't
funny.it is also annoying,with that way over the top 'you're a winner'
musical score.without giving to much away,i'm not really sure what they
were celebrating.if you watch the movie,i think you'll know what i
mean.i just really didn't really see the the point.anyway,for me,this
movie isn't great or even very good.i'm giving it a low 1.5/5

Yes, this movie is a cliche, feel-good movie. Yes, most of the characters are sterotypes and about as developed as a 2x4. Even with this working against the movie, I feel it still works as a movie. I laughed throughout this movie, and I still quote the movie with friends. The interaction between the two coaches is great. Scott Backula does the reluctant hero that he is so good at portraying. The characters are often times over the top, but I feel they only add to the movie. If you like sports movies, feel good movies, or the little winning one, I think you will love this movie.
