When I saw the trailes for this, I thought it was gonna be dumb. Well, it does have some dumb moments, but that's mostly for comical/satirical purposes and those moments are actually quite funny. I'm not even a fan of sports movies and yet I really enjoyed this mostly because it's different from the few sports movies I've seen. Rather then telling the typical underdog story, it instead deals with a guy letting his skills go to his head and dealing with the corruption that occurs within him. The songs are also great and a lot of fun to listen to and while the way it plays out may be obvious, it work really well.
