DVD: We Are Marshall

Kinda sappy but sweet, and Matthew Fox is pretty great in this. Some nice byplay between him and M. McConaughey.
Not sure why it had such a mediocre box office performance/viewership; it’s not the greatest flick but certainly a decent effort.
I guess these would be the reasons I liked it and perhaps the same reasons you wouldn’t.
a) Sports, specifically football
b) Underdogs
c) Nostalgia
d) The classic hard knocks “rising from the ashes” story.
e) The classic “I want nothing to do with you” evolving into “Wow we’re teammates and/or roommates and we can actually get along” story.
f) Matthew Fox.
g) Students vs. the administration.
h) David Strathairn.
