Any Given Sunday (1999)

Written By Awir Aditya on Friday, July 10, 2009 | 11:24 PM

Genre: Drama/Romance/Sport

Starring: Al Pacino, Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, Jamie Foxx

When ace American Football quarterback of the Miami Sharks, Cap Rooney (Quaid) gets injured, amateur Willie Beamen (Foxx) is called in as a replacement. The Sharks losing streak needs to be abolished and team owner and manager Christina Pagniacci (Diaz) is pressurising her coach Tony D'Amato (Pacino) to do something about it. When Beamen starts a new trend of throwing up on the field before blitzing his team to victory, D'Amato finds a rising star. However, things don't go all that easily when Beamen's play strategies although bringing them victory, is not approved of by the coach or the players. What ensues are fights, arguments, disagreements and team politics which threatens to divide the team. The movie has a nice storyline but dosen't get you goose-bumps or the rush of adrenaline that usually sports movies give. Instead it moves at its own leisurely pace trying to encompass unnecessary and trivial mini-stories.

Rating: 6.8/10
