Michael Ritchie's Reagan-era ode to high school football has some weird ideas on race and gender, and refuses to check its privilege or anything else. It somehow works anyway, or maybe because of that. Also Goldie Hawn.
In which Michael Keaton repeatedly touches the lives of Maria Conchita Alonso and her son, Samir from Office Space, with the power of forgiveness, temporary employment, and hockey.
In which a football team fires bazookas in an inexpensive-seeming foreign country, because Ernest Borgnine's ghost told them to. This does not please ethnically ambiguous despot Henry Silva any more than you think it might. Spoiler alert?
In which Andy Dick says awful things to everyone nearby, but does so on purpose, while movie cameras are running, in the service of what's probably the single most offensive movie ever covered in Sportsflicks.
The Last Boy Scout is pretty easily the nuttiest film ever made about professional football, and one of the crazier films of its era in general. Naturally, it looks more and more realistic by the day.
