Slovenski opis filma:

Pred nami je zabavna komedija o začetkih profesionalnega ameriškega nogometa. Leto 1925. Dolgoletni nogometaš Dodge Connelly je trener neuspešne ekipe. Edino rešitev, da bi moštvo izvlekel iz težav, mu predstavlja študentski superzvezdnik in vojni heroj Carter Rutherford. A potem se pojavi zvedava novinarka Lexie Littleton, ki poroča o nogometnih klubih in podvomi o Carterjevih junaških zgodbah. Še bolj se zaplete, ko se Dodge in Carter začneta potegovati za njeno naklonjenost.

Originalni opis filma:

A romantic comedy set against the backdrop of America's nascent pro-football league in 1925. Dodge Connolly, a charming, brash football hero, is determined to guide his team from bar brawls to packed stadiums. But after the players lose their sponsor and the entire league faces certain collapse, Dodge convinces a college football star to join his ragtag ranks. The captain hopes his latest move will help the struggling sport finally capture the country's attention. Welcome to the team Carter Rutherford, America's favorite son. A golden-boy war hero who single-handedly forced multiple German soldiers to surrender in WWI, Carter has dashing good looks and unparalleled speed on the field. This new champ is almost too good to be true, and Lexie Littleton aims to prove that's the case. A cub journalist playing in the big leagues, Lexie is a spitfire newswoman who suspects there are holes in Carter's war story. But while she digs, the two teammates start to become serious off-field rivals for her fickle affections. As the new game of pro-football becomes less like the freewheeling sport he knew and loved, Dodge must both fight to keep his guys together and to get the girl of his dreams. Finding that love and football have a surprisingly similar playbook, however, he has one maneuver he will save just for the fourth quarter...
