The Replacements

I have been on a kick again recently of watching the Keanu Reeves-Gene Hackman movie "The Replacements" on TV and then online. Mostly online because I would rather watch the unedited version. So I thought that I would post a poll to see how many of TBS'ers out there liked it.


***sorry I must have double clicked the poll button so alas no poll***

Re: The Replacements

Sorry, I've never seen it. I was hoping this thread was about the band, one of the all-time greatest in my book.

Re: The Replacements

Then it a good time for you to watch. Excellent movie IMO, not just about football but about people coming together and becoming a team ...overlooking their obvious differences.

Then perhaps Alidar, maybe renaming the post to include (the movie)...
But what is it that made it so-so for you?...lol

Not to hijack the thread, but, I thought so too! The Replacements were the best band ever.

I used to live in Minneapolis, I worked at a coffee shop that Paul Westerberg regularly came to. It was kinda awesome.

Ok. On with the thread...

It had a fairly cliche plot, it didn't handle it in an innovative way, and Keanu Reeves isn't a good actor.

Boy...never heard that on the TBB at allBut as for Keanu being a good actor I guess the films vary.

Re: The Replacements

It was a fun film, with some hilarious moments. I always get a laugh when the stripper cheerleaders distract the opposing team.

Is it Oscar material? Will it win Sundance? No.. but it is a fun couple hours.

Re: The Replacements

I enjoyed it. But I enjoy pretty much any movie that focuses on interesting and quirky characters. I enjoyed Major League for much the same reason, and I absolutely hate spectator sports. (Seriously, where the hell is the fun in watching someone else play a game? Go out there and play it yourself. It's like watching someone play a video game.)

Re: The Replacements

Yeah, this is one of the sports movies I can watch over and over again. It's not as heavy as some movies nor as silly as others.

And the cheerleader girl is/was hot, so that helps.

Loved this movie as well as Necessary Roughness. They are great ways to pass a rainy Saturday/Sunday afternoon.
