A very good movie, especially for mid-teenage boys and their parents

This movie is geared toward and is a great movie for mid-teenage boys. For those who are not jocks, it shows that tenacity and courage can be exercised by anyone. For jocks, it shows that being a jerk to others is wrong. Regardless of pop-culture, the movide shows the reality that a teenage boy needs a strong, good man or men in his life. The movie also shows the loyalty of a man to a fallen comrade.
