Book is supposed to be about the effects of HS football on small town Texas. But movie is less about that and more like a sports movie. Nevertheless, good,well done and engaging.

I thought this was VERY POORLY done. I thought as the series came out, the movies improved greatly.

I liked the coach that Tammy was married to better in the series. This same man DID NOT play a very good alcoholic in this movie.

Excellent movie, surprisingly real but not a family movie along the lines of Invincible or Remember the Titans. Great character development.

Beautiful cinamatography, but incredibly sad story. There is no happy ending in sight.

Odessa, Texas, is a small, town in Texas. Racially divided and economically dying, there is one night that gives the town something to live for: Friday Night. The Permian Panthers have a big winning tradition in Texas high school football, led by QB Mike Winchell and superstar tailback Boobie Miles, but all is not well, as Boobie suffers a career-ending injury in the first game of the season. Hope is lost among citizens in Odessa, and for the team, but Coach Gary Gaines, who believes that "Perfection is being able to look your friends in the eye and know you did everything you could not to let them down", is somehow able to help the team rise up from the ashes and make a huge season comeback. Now on their way to state, the Panthers must go out and be perfect, because they may never matter this much for the rest of their lives
