Believe it or not, The Replacements is one of the best football movies of all time. This is not because The Replacements is not such a good movie, but really because football movies are generally so bad. Here are the reasons why The Replacements is better than normal football movies:

1. In The Replacements, both teams are shown having possession of the ball. Sometimes team A has the ball and sometimes team B has the ball. When possession changes, there is a turnover or a kickoff or some action to explain the change in possession.

2. Sometimes they have to kick a field goal. It’s not all TDs all the time people. Why do you think the all time leading scorers in the NFL are kickers? (i know, i know because of extra points)

Well, those are about the only reasons The Replacements is a good football movie, but it is a start. I would watch it any day of the week over Any Given Sunday. Seriously, Oliver Stone must hate football.
