SYNOPSIS:
In Virginia high school football is king. It is a way of life, an institution revered and venerated, each game celebrated more lavishly than Christmas, each playoff distinguished more grandly than any national holiday. And with such recognition, comes powerful emotions.

In Virginia in 1971 high school football was everything to the people of Alexandria. But when the local school board was forced to integrate an all black school with an all white school, the very foundation of football's great tradition was put to the test.

When Herman Boone (DENZEL WASHINGTON), a young black coach new to the community was hired as head coach of the T.C. Williams High Titans over Bill Yoast (WILL PATTON), a white man with several years seniority and a steadfast following, would the honor of the game win out over racism?

REVIEW BY DAVID BRUCE

This is a film about racism.
This is a film about winning that battle.

I highly recommend this film.
It is one of the year's best films.

RULE NUMBER ONE -In overcoming racism/differences.
GET GROUND LEVEL

Get to know each member of the team.
Bond.
Help each of the team members to know each other.
Treat everyone the same.
Teach respect.
Teach tolerance.
Model what you want.

RULE NUMBER TWO -In overcoming racism/differences.
GET ALL THE PLAYERS WORKING TOGETHER.

Interdependence must be worked at.
Community does not just happen. It is developed.
Teamwork is learned.
Each person is necessary for the whole.
Coach the team.
Discipline the team.
Work the team.

RULE NUMBER THREE -In overcoming racism/differences.
SETTLE FOR NOTHING LESS THAN VICTORY.

The goal is about winning.
And winning is not about first place.
Winning is about the establishment of a level playing field for all players.
Winning is about achieving effective teamwork -true community.

ONE OF MY FAVORITES

From: Sami

Wow! This movie has now become one of my favorites!! The best part is that it is based on a true story! This also helps people understand how things were back then and the things that people went through! The music in this movie has great hits! The day after I saw it I went out and got the cd! Also Rev and Superman are quite the cutties in this movie! Rev or Craig Kirkwood also plays in the other Disney movie Hounded. My little brother was watching it and I just happened to walk by and notice Craig was in that movie!! I HAD to watch the end of it! He is a (HOT), smart, talented, new actor and I wish him the best in his career!!

BEST MOVIE YET

From: Christina

I think that Remember the Titans was the greatest movie. It had a good cast. Denzel Washington is one of my favorite actors of all time. I also think that Will Patton is an excellent actor. I got it on DVD and I watch it over and over again. I love it. I also think the "The Rev" is so hot!
Thanks. ~Christina

BEST FOOTBALL MOVIE TO DATE
Subject: Could this be the BEST football movie to date?

I tend to think so after seeing this awesome inspirational film. I sat down, traditional Twizzlers in hand, and saw Disney's name come up and thought:(unedited, of course)"Aww, man. This movie's gonna' suck." Thank goodness I'm wrong so often. "Remembering The Titans" is the best telling of a racial victory story. What a great chapter of mankind to put to film. What movie in recent memory covered both sides of this unfortunate strife our country faced in such positive and tender terms? What was missing? What could have been brought up? What more do you need? I was sold through and through this film. And just maybe it made me rethink my assumptions I've tatooed on Disney. Maybe. Just maybe.

A REAL WINNER

From: Ann

You'll feel like a winner after watching this film. It makes you cheer outloud. The feisty exchanges between the players and the coaches are heated and real. It's Denzel Washington's best movie -- it'll be among my top ten.
-- Blessings! ann :)
