Synopsis


The Program
Eastern State University isn't particularly notable for anything except its football program. Lately, even that hasn't been doing too well, and the athletic staff led by Coach Winters (James Caan) are under considerable pressure by the administration and alumni to bring in a winning season. To do that, he has to recruit some able, promising young players out of high school. It's not too surprising to learn that he will do almost anything to get these kids, and its even less surprising that, as long as they keep producing on the field, he and the college will overlook almost any obnoxious behavior the boys can perpetrate to the limit of their ability. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

    Great Movie

    The Program is one of, if not, the best football movie ever made. The characters in the movie develop so much throughout the film. The plot is great. I could never imagine a better made sports film. Lattimer is the coolest guy in the world. Who would actually smash their head through car windows after finding out they made the starting lineup? Only Lattimer. Joe Kane is a great character who shows development and growth throughout the film. This film is a must for any football fanatic. It fulfills all of the requirements for a great sports film; believable characters, action packed scenes, storyline that displays the truth of the sport.

    This is a great movie, my wife and I love it! This movie is based on college football and the behind the scenes of what it's like to play this sport at a high level. This is a must see for any football fan. It's a very intriguing film with a great cast. I highly recommend it! Also, some other great football movies I recommend are Any Given Sunday, We are Marshall, Friday Night Lights, and The Longest Yard.
