FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS (Theatrical Release USA 2004)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Friday Night Lights
is a surprising sleeper. It’s perfectly done from beginning to end—well-acted by each person in the cast (which includes Billy Bob Thornton as Coach Gary Gaines). The unexpected ending is an added serendipity. Friday Night Lights starts out well and holds its own to earn its place as a good sports film.
