Jerry Maguire isn't really about football, but I think it's a mediocre film at best anyway. I'm not really into romantic movies though, so that could explain why I don't think it's very good. This is movies we're talking about, so it's all subjective.
Friday Night Lights was OK, but I don't even know how much better it was than a film like Varsity Blues. Pretty typical stuff and I don't think it really compares to a film like Any Given Sunday that tries to explore some new realms in sports film.
