Take one true story, add a hunky Hollywood star and a generous serve of cheese, then knead in an against- all- odds hero, sugarcoat it and bake ’ til it’s soft and heart- warming. There you have it: a typically inspiring Disney film based on a real- life sporting hero. Here, the hero is Vince Papale ( Mark Wahlberg, pictured), a down- on- his- luck bartender who turns up for open try- outs for his beloved NFL team, the Philadelphia Eagles. Greg Kinnear, Elizabeth Banks and Kevin Conway fill the supporting roles and, although it’s not exactly memorable, it’s enjoyable and family friendly.
