The Replacements


(out of 5)

Fairly funny film that clunks along from scene to scene, never building up much in the way of comedic momentum. The film is weighed down by dull performances, from  as a scab football player hired during a professional players’ strike, to  in a tired bit as the coach who thinks he’s seen it all. Nothing inspired ever happens, even the football scenes aren’t very exciting, and then the film ends with a self-righteous message about professionals and their love of money over the spirit of the game.  makes a sparkling star debut as Reeves’ love interest, standing out from a cast of known character actors like and (Notting Hill) who are basically riffing off the personas we know them already for.
