Pain heals, Chicks dig scars, Glory last forever
The Replacements works good as a Comedy and as a good drama fight for the underdog. The humor really made me chuckle a few times. It's not knee-slapping, but there might be some fanny-smacking clowning around. Orlando Jones contributes to a large portion of this humor. Brooke Langton really knows how to make a guy smile, and feel good about himself, and does an excellent job as the female attraction.

Gene Hackman and Keanu Reeves really work well together, and you get a feeling that they could really be pals. I like Reeves in almost every movie he's made. He comes cross quiet, and very cool, but a force to be reckoned with, and this is one of those times like the Matrix's, "Point Break", "Hardball", "Speed" or even "A Walk in the Clouds". And on top of that, Keanu is also Ted the goof in the Bill & Ted's Adventures. This shows what a versatile actor Keanu is, and that he has a good sense of comic timing.

This is one of those movies that no matter how many times I've seen it, if I come by the TV and find it on, I just must sit down and watch it one more time. You'll just have to watch for yourself. I'll bet you come away with a feeling like this movie has "heart".

The most quoted line in any movie is probably when Shane Falco tells his "Win one for the Gipper" speeches and says "Pain heals, Chicks dig scars, but Glory last forever".
