Movie tells the story of Kurt Warner, in drafted hall of fame football player.
Rocky of football!!
Kurt Warner, the former quarterback whose unexpected rise to fame, and the relationships that were the foundation for his success, are chronicles in the new film "American Underdog". The film is an uplifting story that demonstrates that anything is possible when you have faith, family, and determination. It's the classic Cinderella sports story of hidden talent rising to the top. It’s a tale of determination, perseverance against incredible odds, and of family; all of the themes that mean so much to us all. Warner, a true-life hero whose exploits and life story are as compelling as a comic legend’s world-saving deeds. Sometimes that means recreating an outfit exactly, sometimes it means finding a story in a piece of jewelry or clothing that helps the character identify. More vibrant colors, sharper lines; that kind of thing. The film sources much of the clothing at thrift shops and altered them and she makes sure to subtly reflect her evolving social status. The journey is defined by perseverance. That’s who we're and what really makes the two of them tick. It's a rags-to-riches story. People should be ready to step into new and bigger things, and to not allow their circumstances to define them. "American Underdog" is both a football movie and an inspirational, emotional story for families to share. The film gives people the ability to dream for their own life, to unite with others, to focus on the things that are important in this life, to celebrate not just accomplishments but purpose. The film represents a beacon of hope that stirs the soul; no matter our circumstances, no matter how hard it's, if we never give up, the realization of a dream is always within reach. Anyone lucky enough to be in love will recognize that humility, inner strength, faith, grace, motivation, and a focus on what really counts in life, makes anything possible. This era can lean on the bulky side. (3,5) By Gregory Mann
This movie emphasizes the ability to achieve your dreams in America if you have the will to work for it. This is suitable on the silver screen, an all-American wholesome movie. A hard-working dad, and a loving wife. I loved how this movie emphasizes what America truly stands for; the survival of the fittest, those with hearts in the shape of an ambitious lion.
A true story that was inspirational, and the movie made the characters realistic.
I loved that he had a dream and was wavering and wasn't understanding his personal delimma. It wasn't until he had Brenda iln his corner did he restructure his thoughts and persevered.Great film for young athletes and anyone with a dream.
Not even a passable time-waster; WILDCATS is still the greatest football movie ever.
Clean and inspirational! Liked the romance in it!
Good acting! great story line. Simple and inspirational! We loved it!
great to sit back and be inspired and enjoyed it, being a true story is why this is a good movie. Good to see a movie thats for the family and not violent nor using sex to sell it.
I usually go to movies for the popcorn so when I was hungry I went to the theaters and realized I've watched all the other blockbusters that were out so I decided to take a chance and watch a movie I wouldn't normally. American underdog was actually really heartwarming and interesting throughout. After the movie I had to google Kurt Warner to see more about him. Truely a great movie
Great movie, identified areas where we as people struggle in life, but if we stay focused on the things we desire we can accomplish it. The movie also shows having a positive attitude can go a long way. The acting was very good.
I look for " based on true story" movies. This one was captivating. The personal struggle relatable. Glad it didn't rely on foul language or gratuitous sex. Was surprised a 4:30 Saturday senior viewing was $7. I need to pay better attention.
Inspiring. Better than I thought it would be.
Storyline and acting were great. Very inspirational movie! Best movie seen in long time.
Loved everything except concession prices. $7.00 for a SMALL popcorn? $7,00 for a coke? Comeon'.
Hackneyed and unbearably cloying. If you want to see a good football film, see Radio.
It is outstanding on every level and n every way. Take kleenex and be prepared to get emotional in many touching scenes. It's informative, humorous, emotional, touching, inspiring, motivational. I saw it twice in one week.
It takes a special type of person to take on the challenges that Kurt Warner had in life as well as how he took them head on! I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie but was pleasantly surprised at how much my husband and I enjoyed it! I would see it again!
The road to greatness is marked by doing the everyday duties, routines and obligations that are a part every life.
Very enjoyable, moving, heart felt movie. I loved every minute. Truly a great story that was made into a great movie!
I wasn't sure what to expect based on some of the bad reviews , but I was pleasantly surprised . I thought this was a great movie .I'd see it again .
Fantastic. They were very good to Iowa. Coyotes was a bigger club back in the days, but in the movie they made it seem more like a bar. Other than that two thumbs up! I used to talk with Kurt in the grocery isles at Hy Vee. A very inspirational movie !
If you want an inspiring movie, and based on the actual story, this is it. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The real life Drama!
Perfect real life example of "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade". For both Kurt and his wife!
The Blind Side is better, and it has Sandra Bullock.
Overlong by at least an hour. Would have worked better as a Hallmark special.
It was a breath of fresh air to watch American Underdog. Hollywood is gone too far down needing to sleez up everything and make it raunchy. Kurt Warner's stories inspiring and shows how with hard work and God you can make things happen despite the odds. They also were able to tell the story without a bunch of raunchy scenes
Great family movie that shows that hard work and a "never give up" attitude can make a childhood dream come true.
Appreciated the authenticity of the characters in this true life story. Very refreshing and encouraging!
true stories are usually good movies, but this was a great one
Felt more like a feature-length version of Eight Is Enough than a football movie.
One of the best movies I have ever watched. Quite a story about a huge underdog. Loved it. Very well done.
They make the movie look like it’s about football, but there is barely any football in it. It’s more about warners wife and her children, than him. Decent flick, but I won’t be seeing it again.
The lesson here is that the only thing more yawn-inducing than football are yawn-inducing movies about football...
Great family movie with perseverance and faith as a theme! True story stay through the credits to see real characters.
loved this story,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,a very feel good movie............
It's always good to see people overcome and succeed. No sex or bad words in this movie -Just good clean story line that I enjoyed very much
I was not bored once. I like a movie with a little substance. It was eye opening to see the work and pressure these sports people live with. One of the best movies I have seen in a long time.
I'm pretty sure that's Rogue from X-men...
I LIKED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!!
True story, inspiring with message of not giving up on your dream. Acting O.K. story brings tears and joy, all can relate to life's ups and downs. Great movie if you love football.
Very inspiring and amazing story on Kurt Warner's journey to play in the NFL.
Inspiring movie about resilience, hard work and character
Based on true story. Inspiring. Find your Destiny in life!
Great movie for people of all ages.
In the old days these were called TV-movies of the Week.
What a great story of a man who wouldn’t give up on his dream! With so many violent movies filled with language and sex, it was so refreshing to see a movie about a real person who made a difference in football and his family.
