My All American comes to Blu-ray on February 23, 2016.

There have been many movies with sports-related themes. So when a new ‘true story’ about a sport some are apt to say ‘another?’.  The nice thing is when a director can explore a different angle on a theme with a new style.

My All-American takes place in the late 1960s and follows the brief college football career of Freddie Steinmark. Freddie Steinmark’s optimism and moral decency, rooted in his dad and Catholicism, enabled him to succeed and then face declining health with bravery.

This movie is not edgy or groundbreaking in any way, but it is enjoyable entertainment and has really nice casting. It shows a person who is untainted by the counterculture of the 1960s, whom everyone respects, and who faces his decline with the same determined courage with which he faced the challenges of the sport.

I think it reminds me a bit of  the Gary Cooper movie about Lou Gehrig, The Pride of the Yankees.  This is because of the overall innocence of the characters and how relationships develop only to lead to declining health. It’s a nice human interest story with wholesome characters.

Mainstream critics are too critical overall of biographical movies which are presented in as straightforward a way as this. For my part, I think it’s a fun movie to watch even though football maneuvers don’t make sense to me, and I feel that the fairly straightforward personality and life of Freddie somehow make a fine motion picture. Besides his optimism, courtesy, and determination, I think the thing we are supposed to admire about his character is that he was determined to enjoy his life even after he learned he wouldn’t live much longer (due to bone cancer). He maintained a sense of purpose to the end.

We saw this! It’s a great “you can take your husband to it and he will like it, but it is in fact a chick-flick” movie!
