Inspired by the true story of the 1987 NFL strike, this comedy tells the story of an over-the-hill coach (two-time Oscar winner Gene Hackman) and a washed-up former quarterback (Keanu Reeves) who lead a team of strike-bearing "replacement players" to a short but glorious season of victories in professional football.

Co-starring Orlando Jones (The Time Machine, Chain of Fools) and Jon Favreau (Made, Swingers), with NFL announcers John Madden and Pat Summerall.
