invincible


the year: 2006

the genre: sports


the cast: Mark Wahlberg (Vince Papale); Elizabeth Banks (Janet Cantrell); Greg Kinnear (Dick Vermeil)



the plot: A 30-year old Philadelphia Eagles fan who has just lost his teaching job and his wife (after she walks out) decides, at the urging of his friends, to show up for open tryouts - held at the suggestion of new coach Dick Vermeil.




don't miss: In the Giants game, when Mark Wahlberg is running down the sideline in special teams coverage, a Giants player hits him hard and knocks him down. This Giants player was a football player at the nearby University of Delaware, and was not supposed to contact Wahlberg, let alone knock him down. (Take THAT Blue Hen gainsayers!)





watch for: a smart aleck comment by Blaine. He usually has one when I mention Mark Wahlberg. :)



listen for: "Who said I was talking about him?"




did you know: the boy running in the street with the makeshift number 83 jersey is the real Vince Papale's son.

He's been slaving away here doing landscaping for my boss man. We'll be at home this weekend...maybe then. He was focusing his harassment on Erika last night...so he might have to prime his battery first.

The one an only claim to fame for a Blue Hen. Hopefully the credit was worth it. He was probably a celebrity on campus until good ole Joe became VP.

With regards to Mark and his special gift to the world. If I remember correctly, it doesn't take long before he manages to get his shirt off, or it gets soaked in rain, or both in this movie.


What is it with him and water movies anyway? Italian Job, Perfect Storm, Invincible, etc. One act pony baby, if it wasn't for his unique attribute! ;)

OK. I have to leave a comment if for no other reason than to tell you that my current word verification is "earpoo." That's all. :)

Oh! And to say that Blaine was giving me a hard time about there being an East Texas Poultry Festival...but that he was too chicken to go. Guess that primed him. ;D
