When the coach (Greg Kinnear) of the beloved hometown football team hosts an unprecedented open tryout, the public consensus was that it was a waste of time -- no one good enough to play professional football was going to be found this way.
Certainly no one like Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg), a down-on-his-luck 30-year-old teacher and part-time bartender who never even played college football. But against these odds, Papale makes the team and lives every fan’s fantasy -- moving from his cheap seats in the stands to standing on the field as a professional football player.
Inspired by a true story.
