From the previews, he does a mean Vermeil impression.

The real test: I want to hear him say "We're gonna be a good football team, good football team"

I think it looks like it'll be pretty good. It opens Friday (8/25). I may check it out.

Yeah it doesn't look bad at all. For some reason I tend to like the typical Disney underdog sports flicks. Maybe its because I like golf and some of the history, but The Greatest Game Ever Played was pretty damn enjoyable.

I just noticed the horrific play on words in the movie title.

Last year a reporter asked Vermeil what he thought of Kinnear after visiting with him, and Dick basically said "Eh..."

I don't get it.

Invincible has "vince'' in it...but I still don't get it.

Could be unintentional but it seems exactly like something some marketing guy would come up with.

So some people shrink themselves down and go In Vince Ible's body to defuse a bomb or what?

It's definately intentional.

I doubt this movie is going to be any good, and frankly the previews don't make me very optimistic about Kinnear as Dick Vermeil either. His "Go to work" sounds like he's reminding people it's time to go to work. He's not using like a rallying cry, which leads me to believe that somebody dropped the ball with that quote. Almost like somebody told the writer and director that Dick says this all the time, but they never bothered to watch and tape of him saying it and pumping his fist, and rallying the troops.

Offense?... GO TO WORK!
Defense?... GO TO WORK!
Special Teams?... GO TO WORK!
Coaches?... GO TO WORK!

Greg Kinnear?... go to work guys.

It was the trailer. Lines are often changed before the final cut.

I can just see it now...Greg Kinnear going on and on about how amazing the Broncos are and how his team could have a 1% chance of beating them if they play the best football of their lives in preparation for his role.

If there isn't a "pooped in his hat" in this movie, I will DEMAND a refund.

Okay, I probably won't see this for a few years, but still.

I wanna hear him say, "Knock the shit outta that guy - take that cocky phuk and bury him." Or something along those lines.

Press- so what do you think of this Papale kid

I'll have to reserve my judgment until I see Greg Kinnear cry.

Agreed, the dramatic acting with crying, hugging and getting all choked up talking about his players is the real Oscar preforming moments are.

Why do I have this vision of Celine Dion playing "love will go on" while DV is standing on Trent Greens shoulder pads.

All the While DV is screaming "I'm the King of the World"

"Peterson..the UCLA staff as receivers coach and administrative assistant to Dick Vermeil when he became the school’s head coach in ‘74 before accompanying Vermeil to the Eagles in ‘76."
