Aaaaand added to my must-see list.

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.

they definitely go out of their way to make ohio look pastoral as hell (assuming they filmed the rest of it in ohio)

Wonder where they filmed the farm scenes? Really, really looks like NW Ohio/SE Michigan.

Ahh-mainly western Michigan, Grand Rapids area. Turns out the writer/director graduated from OSU-Journalism degree. Might have to see this one.

There is a typo in the movie description :(

There are multiple typos. Having a copy editor for a single paragraph must not have made their production budget.


Former high school football star turned farmer and family man, Scott Murphy (Brian Presley) finds himself with a unique opportunity to revisit his glory days during the Ohio State championship game where he permanently injured his knee in a game-winning play. Given asecond shot at his destiny, Scott seeks counsel from Coach Hand (Kurt Russell), Scott's longtime mentor onand off the field, to help him decide whether to let his fate unfold, or follow a path that will change his future.


That being said, it's nothing to get in too much of a twist over. It's not like they used your/you're interchangeably.

Here is the 2010 article from the Dispatch when they filmed some scenes in the 'Shoe. The article notes some parts were filmed in Coshocton & Fredericktown but much of it was filmed near Grand Rapids, (Up North).

TIL I'm going to see a Kurt Russell movie in the near future.

Ummm, Ohio HAS a lot of farmland. And I love it.

Anyone else feel obligated to see it even though it looks awful?

I want this movie to be good, but it looks really really terrible.

swing hard in case you hit it.

Was thinking the same thing. On the plus side, Melanie Lynskey is in it. She's a very good actress.

I agree with RDubs and Shark. The movie looks like something The Rock should play QB in. Although I do like seeing Coldwater, that's a D5 power house in Ohio. I'll go see it, sadly I admit.
