View All Available Formats & Editions


Oliver Stone takes on professional football, a sport whose grace and delicacy are a good match for his filmmaking style. Tony D'Amato (Al Pacino), the head coach of the Miami Sharks, won back-to-back championships four years ago. But new team owner Christina Pagniacci (Cameron Diaz) has little enthusiasm for the finer points of the game and is concerned only with the bottom line. The longtime strongman of Tony's team has been "Cap" Rooney (Dennis Quaid), a 39-year-old quarterback, but Christina balks at renewing his contract. When Cap is injured during a game, third-string rookie quarterback Willie Beaman (Jamie Foxx) goes on in his place and becomes a major star. But Beaman is mostly interested in fame and money, and he has little regard for Tony and his teammates. Any Given Sunday also stars James Woods as the team's doctor, LL Cool J as a star running back, Jim Brown as a former football great turned Sharks' defensive coordinator, Ann-Margret as Christina's alcoholic mother, Bill Bellamy as a wide receiver, Elizabeth Berkley as Tony's favorite prostitute, and Charlton Heston as the football commissioner.

I enjoyed this One ! If you're a Pacino fan, don't miss this. Also good entertainment for sports fans. I learned some things 'bout football :) I usually watch basketball :) Great Visuals on the field, seemed very authentic on and off. I'm very happy with my purchase ~

I got motion sickness from the camera shots bouncing around. I didn't care about any of the characters.

Master director Oliver Stone crafted this look at pro football as an assault on the senses, and you'll get every tackle, pass and torn ligament in full-on glory with this astonishing DVD. Stone's brilliant ensemble cast captures the triais and tribulations of the Miami Sharks, a team beset by unnecessary roughness on and off the field.

Great movie! Helps get you ready for football season. Any football fan will love it and its fun to compare the movie characters to different real players.

This is a unique, albeit unrealistic, look into the world of football. Al Pacino's acting is the star of the film. His locker room speech near the end of the film is a highlight.
