Now on DVD from director Marshall Cook and Image Entertainment comes a football story quite like no other with “Division III: Football’s Finest”.
This film tells the story of the Pullham University Bluecocks, a Division III football team whose coach suddenly dies. The team hasn’t won a game in decades and now the program is in jeopardy.
President Georgia Ann Whistler (Mo Collins) is now desperate to find a way to get good media coverage for the university. She hires felon Coach Rick Vice (Andy Dick) to take control of the team for its final season.
Vice isn’t your average coach by any stretch of the imagination with his rough and crazy ways. Mitch DePrima (Marshall Cook), benched his first year, gets creative to go around the insanity of a male cheerleading roommate, teammates that aren’t that smart and a hot trainer!
FINAL WORD: This is an interesting role for Dick, even his look gives him a chance to take this role to a whole different level. As Andy Dick always has a tendency to do, he is over the top and raunchy. Not everything is a laugh but there are enough to make the film fun.
Cooks as DePrima is the cutie of the film. As a kid with a dream he will do whatever it takes to make sure he gets field time. Working with the craziness around him I have to give DePrima credit for being able to stand out in this role.
It is a fun film filled with jaw dropping moments and lots of laughter. If you are still looking for more football after the Superbowl then this is the film that will bring you lots of fun and something to talk about after.
Other cast includes: Bryan Callen as Denny Dawson, Paul Henderson as Bob Delgirt, Kevin Covais as Allen Swartz, Will Sasso as Terry Lockwood, Sally Kirkland as Crystal Vice, Taymour Ghazi as Tyler Keys, with an appearance by Adam Carolla as Chet Reyback.
TUBS OF POPCORN: I give “Division III: Football’s Finest” three tubs of popcorn out of five. It is a fun and edgy film for the guys to get together and have more laughs than they’d ever expect.
The DVD includes the special features section with outtakes, deleted scenes and a commentary provided by Andy Dick and director Marshall Cook.
In the end – sometimes it takes a little crazy to get the job done!
