Product Description

With only one major star (Denzel Washington), an appealing cast of fresh unknowns, and a winning emphasis of substance over self-indulgent style, Boaz Yakin's Remember the Titans is, like Rudy before it, a football movie that will be fondly remembered by anyone who sees it.

Set in Alexandria, Virginia, in 1971, the fact-based story begins with the integration of black and white students at T. C. Williams High School. This effort to improve race relations is most keenly felt on the school's football team, the Titans, and bigoted tempers flare when a black head coach (Washington) is appointed and his victorious predecessor (Will Patton) reluctantly stays on as his assistant. It's affirmative action at its most potentially volatile, complicated by the mandate that the coach will be fired if he loses a single game in the Titans' 13-game season. The players represent a hotbed of racial tension, but as the team struggles toward unity and gridiron glory, Remember the Titans builds on several subplots and character dynamics to become an inspirational drama of Rocky-like proportions.

Yakin--whose debut, Fresh, was one of the best independent films of the 1990s--understands the value of connecting small scenes to form a rich climactic payoff. Likewise, Washington provides a solid dramatic foundation (his coach is obsessively harsh, but for all the right reasons) while giving his younger co-stars ample time in the spotlight. The result is a film that achieves what it celebrates: an enriching sense of unity that's unquestionably genuine. (Ages 9 and older) --Jeff Shannon

Believe it or not, I never even heard of this movie until recently. I'm not a big sports fan, or a sport movie fan so when my boyfriend brough this over to watch, I was less than thrilled.
However, once it started, I was captivated by it.
The movie is made even better based on the fact it is based on a true story. The jist of it is this... Herman Boone, played by Denzel Wahsinton perfectly, takes over as new head coach at a high school that has been desegregated. Naturally, the town has mixed reactions.
We watch as Boone, uses tactics that neither the players, the parents, the townsfolk or even his assistant coaches like to force the players to not only become a team but also respect each other as people. We watch as friendships form, and as a team forms.
Eventually we watch as the winning football team, and essentially Boone brings the town together.
This movie brings something to the table for everyone. I laughed, I cried, I even cheered during the games. A must see!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst sports movie of all time May 1 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
As a previous reviewer had stated, this is not about football. It's about an embarassingly preachy movie that distorts cultural differences, and tries to be cute.
This could have been a great and moving film. Great/true story, Denzel Washington, good message. Too bad they had to try to get cute and funny, and then try to integrate modern leftist cultural issues into a film where the year is 1971 and these issues were not prevelant.
If you want to see a great movie about African American triumph, see Glory. If you want to see a great football movie see Rudy. If you want to have your intelligence insulted see this horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorites May 22 2004
Format:DVD
I didn't expect to like this movie as much as I did. I don't know much about football, but I love the spirit of this movie. It's about a high school in Virginia in 1971 that has just been racially integrated. Denzel Washington's character, Herman Boone, is brought in as head coach of the school's champion football team over the school's current successful coach, Bill Yoast. The white team members are resentful and afraid of losing their places on the team when the black players show up. After football camp, where the white and black players are forced to work together day and night, they learn that they really aren't all that different and that together they can be unbeatable. There's racial tension all over the town and in the school, but the winning season the Titans is having unites the town. The team sets an example for everyone about acceptance and tolerance. The characters are so well-written and interesting, and the story is very inspirational. I recommend this movie for everyone, including kids.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exaggerated but wins you over anyway Feb. 15 2004
Format:VHS Tape
My high school years were about five years later than the 1971 time frame of this story of football and racial tension. In my Southern town my school was integrated and the one across town had only a handful of black students, and the tension was there, so I can identify with that and testify to younger viewers that the supercharged atmosphere in this film mostly rings true.
The basic plot is described in other reviews here, so I won't belabor the point. The filmmakers do a fair job of presenting said racial tension, and even do an unusually good job with the football action, which is apparently one of the hardest things to get right in Hollywood. The boot camp atmosphere of the team's August training camp gradually brings about the same type of camaraderie that a military boot camp is meant to, where the players eventually learn to fight for one another and become a team.
It's all a bit predictable, with the team eventually forging an unbeaten season and a state championship under the tutelage of their first-year black head coach, and the town naturally falls in love with the coach and the team, although of course the racially insensitive walls have to be beaten down first. I don't mind the predictability that much because the relationships are handled quite well for the most part and the quick pace of the film doesn't leave us much time to ponder over its imperfections. They just don't linger long enough to become a problem.
Overall, other than a couple of bothersome inaccuracies, this is a family film about racism and football, certainly unique in that regard. Kids today hopefully will find the racism of 1971 to be brutally ugly, and we who lived it can verify its reality and open avenues of conversation on the topic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Serious Issues Mangled by Disney Dec 13 2003
By fra7299
Format:VHS Tape
The film's conclusive message--which acknowleges the achieving of goals through racial harmony-is perhaps stronger than the archetypes used to achieve its effect. However, "Remember the Titans" made me feel divided because it seemed to focus on two very unbalanced issues-football and prejudice-by keeping them on an "even" level. On one hand, this film is very powerful and speaks to your emotions through the integration of the white and black community in the South. However, on the other hand, it spends too much time categorizing people and situations into a tight, neat little box. The ultimate impression left is that this could have been so much more; I speculate that Disney's knack for erring on the side of overdoing and overstating had much to do with this.
"Remember the Titans" has dents in its premise. It seems to beg the point that football camaraderie is parallel to racial harmony. The movie implies this message through a series of events: the team must get along to win, if they get along, they have a better shot at winning; if a black and white coach can get along, then prejudice will dissipate; if the team achieves its ultimate goal, then people will remember how we can get along as a community and that we can reach for this anytime there is prejudice.
Other flaws were rampant clichés. The black and white players don't along at first, then they get along and sing songs together on the bus in harmony. We have the halftime speech from Coach Boone ("Give it all you got boys"). We have the big oaf of a football player who "can't go to college" because he doesn't have the brains to do it. We have the "redneck" stereotypes. And we, of course, have the "win one for the Gipper" premise, and, last but not least, the high school football championship scenario.
