Remember the Titans : Friday
September 29, 2000
In Virginia high school football is king. It is a way of life, an institution revered and venerated, each game celebrated more lavishly than Christmas, each playoff distinguished more grandly than any national holiday. And with such recognition, comes powerful emotions. In Virginia in 1971 high school football was everything to the people of Alexandria. But when the local school board was forced to integrate an all black school with an all white school, the very foundation of football's great tradition was put to the test. When Herman Boone (DENZEL WASHINGTON), a young black coach new to the community was hired as head coach of the T.C. Williams High Titans over Bill Yoast (WILL PATTON), a white man with several years seniority and a steadfast following, would the honor of the game win out over racism? -- © Walt Disney Pictures

The People's Review of Remember the Titans
score = 90
This is an awesome movie. I was so motivated but sad all at the same
time. On my list this is in the top five of my movie favorites.
It had great acting and it was so real. Corney as it may sound, it
was neat(sorry) how those guys over came their differences and color and
score = 90
I think this movie was excellent!! It's sad yet heartwarming and fun. I
would definitely go and see it again and again. I advise everyone else to
do the same.
score = 100
comments = My family and I loved this movie. I absolutely love
Denzel. He is a superb actor. It feels good to see such a
controversial issue with a good outcome. My 8 1/2 year old daughter
was having a hard time understanding why people of different races were
treating each other that way. I had to explain to her what racial
prejudice is and she thinks that is the dumbest thing she has ever heard.
score = 50
comments = i was one of the players depicted in the movie. as a
movie, it was very good. but as history, which it aspired to be, it was
fake. it was hollywood fantasy. 1)the rascism was nothing like
the movie. that was so wrong, as well as the supposed social dynamic of
the screenplay. another reason, stupid but important as it was
changed for hollywood: we were never underdogs. who could expect
anyone to beat a team that had three times as many choices for players as
any other team. other teams were furious. we were pretty much
considered the dream team and simply ran over everyone. see this
movie for a cheesy disney film. for history, go elsewhere.
score = 90
comments = This Movie was great! It had everything a great movie needs,
comedy, drama, action and football! The way this movie delt with the
racism within the team was great and entertaining. Any sports fan will
love this movie and even if you arent, then you'll still appreciate the
fact that this is a true story. Not only is this a must see, its a must
see 2 times.
score = 90
comments = This was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. A
great story to go along with great acting. Combines humour with a very
serious issue without making it seem forced. You dont need to be a fan of
football to enjoy this movie, just to understand that this is the
"game" that brings the whole town together. Fantastic!
