 The People's Review of The Replacements

Allen Lavina
score = 60
The phrasing couldve used alot more suspense. I mean what is up with " Its been fun sharing the field of battle with you". Thats just corny right there. But the movie itself sure had motivation and it'd be great to see it again. Its had its content and action. It was a bit obvious and predictable. It couldve had made us at least not know whats coming next. Overall i think on a scale of 1-10, i'd say 9

score = 100
Terrific movie!  Up there with Jerry Maguire as quality comedy football movies!  Not only focused on football, but the socio-political side of the sport and the players' lives... anyone with a sense for cultural and economic issues would love it!  Note the difference b/n most critics' and most fans' reviews... shows how dry, unqualified, and boring most pro movie critics are, with unprecedented lack of insight.

score = 100
Well, this movie is a must see, it made me see the true meaning of a sport.  Your have to use the strongest mucsle in the body, the heart. Its true this movie had a soft side to it but..... it had an out of this world way to make wven the sadest person bright up and laugh. This is the type of movie that should be in theaters all the time. I'm coming back to watch it till the end of time.

score = 90
Unlike all the other teenage movies that I've been to see, this had an original plot and although it was fairly predictable, I laughed for 2 hours. Some jokes were a bit corny but  overall it was bloody funny. This film has great actors, but I feel Keanu Reeves could do with a haircut before going up in my locker! It was definitely worth seeing and I'll see it again with my mates when it comes out in England.

score = 100
comments = This movie was so good! It's primary goal was to be funny and entertaining, and that's what it did. The characters were all believeable and genuine, the script wasn't overloaded, and it had a lot of heart. The music was good and just about every other accolade you can give this movie is well deserved. It made me think how fun it would be to be in that kind of situation.

The first role of a movie is to entertain you...This movie did only that. I really enjoyed the movie from beggining to end...I laughed and had fun for 2 hours.

This movie was so frickin funny!  I loved it!  My whole family was very entertained.  It's too bad life doesn't have as cool a soundtrack as this movie does.  There was like a total of 15 minutes that there wasn't great music playing in the background!  Sure there's no new mysteries of the universe revealed during the 2 hours this movie lasts, but who cares???  Just lighten up and enjoy it!

score = 70 
I think it is better then some other crap I have seen. It was funny even if it was predictable I liked it better then The Cell... go figure. Is it worth seeing in the movies? -probably not, but I do not think many movies are considering the price:-)

score = 80 
My husband and I went and saw this movie at a pre-screening and loved it!  It was just plain funny from start to finish.  Okay, so the story is not really deep, but if you want to go to a movie and just be entertained, then I think you will like this movie!


score = 10 

I don't mind a dumb comedy, they can sometimes be refreshing like "Something About Mary," but this movie is just dull. The characters are boring stereotypes and the story is plodding and predictable with Keanu Reeves's wooden delivery on top. Maybe this is a rental on video for when everything else that's new out is just bad.

We saw the movie this evening and enjoyed it. Perhaps not realistic, but entertaining.

i love gene hackman and keanu has humor. a no brainer but very funny. i hate football but enjoyed this movie. see it to unwind!!!!



score = 60 

 If you want to have fun and laugh off the hidden stress for the day and enjoy football movies with a twist. Go see it and laugh off the extra nine yards. I gurantee what tension you had before will be relieved. Also Keanu is cute to watch. The jail scene was great with the players performing I will survive which I think is a great song.
