Yes, it's another sports drama, and I bet you can fill in many of the blanks without knowing another word. But not all of them -- this isn't your usual sports tale. The film focuses on the true story of Frank and Isaac Gildea, a father and son pair who played college basketball together. (The rights were picked up back in 2007.) As the story goes, Frank had dropped out of college in 1981 to take care of his family. Twenty years later, in a Back to School twist a la Dangerfield, dad returned to his alma mater, where his son was on the basketball team. "The elder Gildea was able to finish out his eligibility and join his son on the team that won the school's first conference championship in 27 years."
I'm in, not so much for the drama aspect, but the increasing desire to see how they handle a 56-year-old Quaid, in basketball duds, playing alongside kids in their late teens and early twenties. Good times!
