This was a great movie if you follow college basketball.

I'm a UK fan, and I thought it was well done. I know people complained about the way Adolph Rupp was portrayed, but it was an overall good movie.

A word of warning, the movie is PG, but there are plenty of references to the "N-word". It's more of in an educational sense, but in case there are some little ones, now you know.:)

Overall-:thumbup: :thumbup:

I don't know why, but it's getting big audiences in El Paso. ;)

Bruckheimer right? Usually that equals over the top junk. I wouldn't be surprised if they acted like all was right in the world between whites and blacks because of one basketball game.

Bottom line: Rupp was a small-minded bigot. And he tried, long after the '66 championship, to degrade Haskins and the rest of the UTEP team.

I saw the movie Saturday and thought it was well done. A bit over the top, but very well done.

My son enjoyed it to and I spend time with him on the message of the movie.

Jerry Brukenheimer is to Hollywood what Palmer Chocolate is to Easter.

I've seen UK lose enough this season. I think I'll pass on this one.

Some of the game scenes were filmed at Chalmette High School.
