You know the plot. A team playing in the biggest city in the world biggest city begins an unpromising season. Their star player leaves, bashes the team and becomes a TV anchor. The star tight end is a cancer to the locker room. Future hall of fame defensive end going through a bitter public divorce. And the team is being lead by the football version of Fredo while his superstar brother does Gatorade commercials fresh off a Superbowl victory.
The Patriots are the polar opposite. Perfect season. Hall of fame head coach. Super model dating quarterback. But slightly tainted with Spygate.
But the Giants play them hard to the final 2 minutes in the season's finale. It gave the team, and the movie's star Eli, all the momentum it needed to defeat Tampa Bay, the heavily favored "America's team" and finally the beloved Brett Farve.
Unless you've been in a coma the past 24 hours, you know how this movie ends.
