reeled in! i was reeled in like a fish. the bait was a ‘feel-good-movie’, of all things. i usually don’t go for hollywood sap, especially disney-fied hollywood sap, but remember the titans had a few things going for it. first, it had football. i’m a huge football fan and the football scenes were strong. second, good acting. denzel was his usual solid self. will patton was excellent as the former head coach and the little girl that played his football crazy nine year old daughter was hilarious. third, a really good, based-on-a-true story. sure, it had cheesey moments, but they were well outnumbered by ones that gave you a lump in your throat.
