It relies upon your belief in the inherent nobility of the sport... If you believe that, this is the greatest sports movie ever made. If you don't, it's a wallow in self-pity. Full Review

It's not damning with faint praise to say this is the best pro football movie ever -- and by yards. Full Review
People Magazine

Rating: 3.5/4 -- The football scenes are brutally real; the locker room scenes are totally authentic. Full Review
Chicago Sun-Times
Mar 21, 2007
Something of a mess, both in terms of the wayward plot which rambles all over the place, and in terms of the rather muddled juggling of audience sympathies. Full Review
Time Out
Jan 26, 2006
The production is a most realistic, hard-hitting and perceptive look at the seamy side of pro football. Full Review
Variety

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Pro football fans may be disillusioned by this excellent, honest, and often brutal expose of the play-for-pay game. Full Review
TV Guide
Mar 14, 2007
Profanely funny, wised-up and heroically antiheroic, North Dallas Forty is unlikely to please anyone with a vested interest in glorifying the National Football League. Full Review

Product Description:

NORTH DALLAS FORTY is a funny and insightful peek into the world of professional football, adapted from Peter Gent's novel. Phillip Elliott is an aging wide receiver for the North Dallas Bulls who still delivers on the field--despite the many past injuries that keep him in almost constant pain. Almost as painful for him is the constant abuse heaped on the players by management. Now Phillip's determined to do something about it. The corporate bigwigs, however, are growing increasingly annoyed by Elliott's complaining. Will the athlete cave in to the pressure and keep his mouth shut or fight the executives at the risk of ending his career' Featuring a stellar cast that includes Charles Durning, Mac Davis, and Nick Notle, this film ranks with HORSE FEATHERS, SEMI-TOUGH, and THE LONGEST YARD as one of the greatest football films of all time.

Plot Synopsis:

This screen adaptation of Peter Gent's best-selling novel about labor abuse in the NFL is one of the greatest gridiron movies ever made.
