In the long list of films about college basketball, only one dares to cast Kadeem Hardison as a ghostly version of J.R. Rider, and it happens to be the only one that understands how wise it is to cast David Paymer as a hard-driving basketball coach. The 6th Man is that film.
Before the World Baseball Classic, slightly after the actual fall of the Soviet Union, and definitely on inexpensive Canadian locations, one baseball movie dared to ask: could David Mamet's favorite actor coach a ragtag bunch of Soviet athletes to semi-competence?
Finally, buddy-cop movie that's secretly a long satirical skit about the NHL, in which a mismatched pair of francophone and anglophone Canadian cops team up to solve a murder and realize, in the process, that they both really hate Gary Bettman.
Reggie White only got one chance to make an uplifting, evangelical-flavored film about believing in yourself (and God). Thankfully, it features Pat Morita, Brett Favre, MC Hammer and wrestling's The Big Show. Surprisingly, it's kind of... good?
It may be some time before the Buffalo Bills play in another Super Bowl. Luckily, there's Second String, the movie in which a tiny Canadian quarterback with a big heart leads the Bills to an unexpected win. Also, Jon Voight wears a hat and looks angry.
