In 1972, hoping for a shot at glory, underdog Taft High challenged its meanest rival, Bakersfield, to the annual football game. But when Jack "Butterfingers" Dundee dropped the ball instead of making the big play, Taft was defeated and star Reno Hightower has never let him live it down. Now, 13 years later, Dundee wants the chance to redeem himself, no matter what it takes! His only solution is to play Bakersfield again... with the same team. But for the Taft team, getting into shape could not be tougher... and Bakersfield is loaded!
Okay Jack, you tell the Caribou whatever you want, but I'm gonna tell you something. You're a low-life, blackmailing, chicken-shit squid.
Low-life, blackmailing, chicken-shit squid? Welcome aboard, Reno.
She's gonna leave me as soon as I fix her car.
You're gonna fix it?
Hell no! I love her.
Elly, I have a new move for you.
Oh? Show me.
It's part Smokey Robinson, part Gladys Knight, but it's all me. Jack... Aquarius... gotta gotta gotta gotta, satisfy.
Sort of a white 'Pip', I love it.
Mr. Weasel's here!
You better watch it, Dr. Death! I'm pretty damn fast fora Caucasian.
Come and get me sucka!
A film with a catch (or two).
Haven't you ever done something in your life you wish you could do over again... and this time do it right? After fourteen years, Jack finally has a chance to replay the worst moment of his life. But first, he has to convince Reno that history won't repeat itself.
A comedy about life, hope, and getting even.
