We gave it an F

Friday Night Lights, Remember the Titans, Rudy, Stick It,” says David Koechner, a.k.a. Anchorman‘s Champ Kind, ticking off the flicks that take a beating in this spoof of sports movies. Koechner plays Lambeau Fields, Heartland State’s coach, who’s saddled with best friend-turned-rival (Carl Weathers) and a fumbling quarterback with a bully for a father. Oh, and the director (Tom Brady) ain’t the New England Patriots quarterback. He’s the dude who directed The Hot Chick. Which is either really good or really bad, depending on your perspective.
