I liked the movie but I loved the book...and I dont say that for many books.
There was two things that really made me mad though. One being, to the best of my knowledge, Permian never made it to state but lost to Dallas Carter in the "final four." Now I could be wrong and it could be a case of me last reading the book at the beginning of last semester but I hope someone will correct me if I am but I just didnt like that. The second one was that they took out the whole part about Dallas Carter not being able to participate in the game because of them allowing a failing student-athelete to play. That was one of the biggest parts of the book. Its in the deleted scenes section of the DVD version...
