Football movie classics
Everybody's All-American (1988)
Dennis Quaid has been a double threat on the movie gridiron: a quarterback in Any Given Sunday (1999), a halfback here. Regardless of position, a back is only as good as his linemen. The best thing in Everybodys All-American is that Quaid has John Goodman blocking for him, figuratively as well as literally. Goodman even gets his very own Dan Connolly moment early in the movie leading to the winning touchdown in the Sugar Bowl, no less. - Mark Feeney
