Division II: Football's Finest pulls off a minor miracle given the budget, which according to Marshall Cook, ran to hundreds of thousands rather than millions. Avoiding the cheese of Friday Night Lights, it gives a gag-filled twist to the age old come-from-behind sports movie in the form of berserk coach Rick Vice, played by comic madman Andy Dick, and his assistant coach, played by hilarious scene-stealer Paul Henderson. The duo stand out amid a fine cast, thanks to some creative swearing, inspired improvisation and good old fashioned physical violence. Writers Marshall Cook, Paul Henderson and Andy Dick playfully subvert lots of sports film clichés while sticking to a well-loved formula. The football scenes are beautifully shot, and it's laugh-out-loud funny. The endlessly quotable dialogue and Andy Dick's insane turn make it an instant cult classic.
For such a low rating I was expecting something terrible, but what I got was side splitting humor...literally choked with funny dialogue and situations. The fact that it's a football movie and I hate sports, yet I loved every minute of it speaks volumes to me. I don't think that Andy Dick gets enough work in Hollywood, because without his delivery, I can see the dialogue falling flat and not being anywhere near as humorous. I loved the movie 'Jack & Jill' with Adam Sandler, so if you didn't like that, chances are you won't like this either, but seriously, I laughed from beginning to end. The coffee cup with an image of Hitler that had the text 'FAIL' on it was some of the detail that made me laugh sooo much. More comedy writers/directors should pay attention to the small gags because it's that sort of thing that pays off upon repeat viewings for the slower viewers. If you don't find the movie that's fine, humor is subjective, as is beauty, and I'm glad everyone has different views otherwise we'd all be chasing after the same things. Enjoy this one if you can.
For being a low budget film this movie, surprisingly had several big name stars in it. Most notably Andy Dick,Will Sasso,Adam Corolla, and the always amazing Sally Kirkland. Any true fan of college sports and zany comedies will find enjoyment here. From the over the top antics of the ragtag teammates to the actual actors running the plays while filming the actual games. The movie is one of the better college comedies I have seen as of late and I highly recommend it to all. The crude head coach as written and played by Andy Dick could not have been topped by anyone else, he shines in this undertaking. I find my self still chuckling at his one liners and antics days after watching this movie. I can't wait to add this hidden gem to my DVD collection,and watch this again!
I gave this movie a solid 10 stars for a couple reasons. The movie is downright off the wall funny. I thoroughly enjoyed Andy Dick's acting. He did an absolutely amazing job with this. Marshall Cook - who in my opinion doesn't get enough credit - did an incredible job with this movie. Not only did he direct, produce and edit this movie, he was one of the main characters. Being an actor/director on a film is not an easy task, but Cook did and awesome job! Many do not know this, but the movie was shot in 20 days and for less then a quarter of a million dollars. Some may think that as a result, the movie would be crumby, but I can assure you it is the exact opposite. I highly recommend this movie! As for the down side is that the didn't have enough time to develop some points of the plot, but it isn't hard to follow at all. Go see this movie!
This review contains a spoiler. This movie was very funny. It had me lol throughout the movie. I cannot think of too many sport films that are funny like "Division III: Football's Finest." I can definitely see myself watching this movie again. The coach is funny and the players are terrified of his tactics to coach the team. The coach is crazy, but what other choice does the Division 3 school have. The schools football program is in jeopardy, so they either go big or lose the media attention that the school needs to be successful. The movie seems to be centered around comedy, but I can see how it also focuses on the main idea for the team to win many important games. He needed help and he eventually got it through a determined defensive or offensive coordinator.
