The Replacements

The Replacements Yesterday they were just a bunch of blue-collar guys. But now things are different. These are the glory days -- the days they fill in for striking pro players and become The Replacements.

Underdogs become top dogs in this fun-filled, rough-and-fumble comedy that's ''the best football movie of the last few years'' (Larry Stewart, Los Angeles Times).

Keanu Reeves plays Shane Falco, a washed-out-all-American QB who is the key to the team of misfits assembled by veteran coach Jimmy McGinty (Gene Hackman).A motormouth receiver (Orlando Jones), a merciless linebacker (Jon Favreau), a nicotne-wired kicker (Rhys Ifans) and more line up alongside Falco for a drive to the playoffs.

And for sultry support, there's cheerleader Annabelle Farrell (Brooke Langton) and her ex-stripper squad. ''Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever,'' Falco tells his team. It's a game plan that works to perfection.
