Movie-A-Day #37: Any Given Sunday (1999).

February 6, 2011

It’s Super Bowl Sunday. Outside of Independence Day, this is the closest thing we have to a true national holiday, a day when a huge swath of the population – regardless of race or religion or income – stops everything to focus on a single event. There are plenty of good football themed movies out there, but Oliver Stone’s “Any Given Sunday” is my favorite. Sure, it’s overwrought (but in a good way) and the non-NFL licensed apparel looks silly. But it’s got a great cast and Pacino’s halftime speech is a stone cold classic. Try to squeeze in some time to watch this around your viewing of the big game today.
