An insufferable comedy. [Full Review in Spanish]

Disappointing directorial debut for Flashdance editor Bud Smith who's guilty of treating the ethics of signing gifted high-school athletes as if it were merely another installment of Porky's.

Reflects the mentality of great swaths of artless, ignorant slobs.

Buried somewhere in the screenplay are some Robert Altman-esque satirical intentions, in which the wildly corrupt college football recruitment process is offered as a panoramic image of frenzied American venality.
