i still liked it.i just felt that ...Nights had a stronger story,and i
was more emotionally involved.i also found the characters mote
compelling.for me The Program dragged at times,when there were scenes
not involving football.fortunately these scenes weren't very long,and
there weren't a lot of them.of all the actors in the movie,i was most
impressed with Kristy Swanson and Halle Berry,though both had fairly
small roles.the program was entertaining enough to keep watching,i just
didn't think it was spectacular.is it worth buying?hard to say.but i do
think it's certainly worth catching on premium cable or as rental.these
are just my thoughts.my vote is a 3/5

This is an excellent movie for football fans. It is the most realistic football movie I have seen. The Program is a most believable depiction of college football and college life for the players. I played college football and feel that I am hard to impress as far as football movies go. The Program impressed me!

Other reviewers have covered the accuracy of this movie better than I could so I will not attempt to comment in that respect. As a die-hard college football fan, I didn't see too many things that jumped out at me.
The movie takes us through one season of college football at a fictional school called "Eastern State University". But unlike most directional schools, this one seems to be some kinda good at football.
Mostly, the action centers around the lives of the star quarterback, a Heisman candidate, and the highly recruited true freshman tailback.
To be perfectly honest, I wasn't expecting much. ... I thought it might be something neat to watch. I was very surprised that it turned out to be good.
Here's a few thoughts:
* The movie is rated R, but it could easily have been PG or even G if not for the gratuitous use of profanity.
* I kinda wondered if this is supposed to be the University of Georgia. They finish their season with Georgia Tech and there is a banner that says "SEC" hanging in some shots. Although the banner could be there just because nobody bothered to take it down - when they show a wide shot of the stadium, it looks like South Carolina's stadium.
* The logic doesn't quite work out with what they needed to do for a bowl game. By 1993, the bowl alliance system had started and by winning their conference, they were already assured of going to an alliance bowl regardless of what happened with GT.
* There is one play where a defensive player sacks the QB to end the game. But he does so by ripping off the poor guy's helmet. Rules have changed a little in the last ten years, but I'm pretty sure that was still illegal then.
Overall, it's a good movie for a college football fan. The plot is a bit cheesy, but a college football fan can enjoy it anyway.

I never thought I'd watch a movie about jocks (I'd rather just watch them play) and enjoy it. But "The Program" wasn't so much about jocks, per se, as about *people*...with very realistic hopes, fears, dreams and failings.

Plus, a certain 6'7" Hoosier proves that he's under-rated...by *singing,* and doing a good job of it.

Here's to the release of a DVD version; hopefully, complete with the controversial deleted scenes. Us movie buffs should not have to suffer for the irresponsibility of others.

This film is supposed to be about the challenges faced by the stars of a college football team managed by a grizzled coach (James Caan). We're supposed to be getting a story that we never see, one that goes beyond the bright lights of a big game at some NCAA school. Instead, "The Program" is incredibly staged and obviously buys into the myth that is the glory of football. In a play-by-numbers script, we meet the brooding Heisman candidate, the token black payer, the smart girl he wants to impress, various jocks and the various faceless university officials who alternately try to have them expelled or protected. After some good games at the start off, emotional baggage and the pressure of being on the team get to the players and things go wrong. In the wake of a bad game, the team learns to mature in time for the final game. Though we see fights, cheating and date-rape - the kind of stuff that victimizes everybody else but our heroes (this flick never begins to wonder about poor shmoes who, while at least as intelligent as Caan's star players, nevertheless couldn't get into college, or couldn't compete there against essentially illiterate half-backs who could afford to have more intelligent students do their work and take their tests for them), the only characters given any attention are the players. Bar fights, cheating, rape and the great ends these guys will go to get past drug testing - pretty much tells you what these guys are like. But when the script doesn't really give you any characters but these, and shares their utter cluelessness about a world that exists beyond pro-ball, you've got to wonder how objective it can be.Read more ›
