Gridiron Gang


Hollywood rolls out yet another formulaic sports underdog movie, this time set in a teen detention centre. One of the officers decides the kids need discipline, and he gets permission to train some of them to play American Football (Gridiron). Naturally the team starts off as a bunch of troublemakers, but over time and tribulation they become a winning team. The film is based on a true story.
