Technically speaking, I shouldn’t review “The Program.” After all, I was in the movie. (What? You didn’t see me in the upper deck during the Georgia Tech or Mississippi State games? Look again. This time don’t blink.) In my humble opinion, it’s the finest movie ever made. No? How about best sports movie ever? Best football movie? Of 1993? Best movie that I am in? (FYI – I’m also in “Spring Break.”) Seriously though, it’s an even-handed though cliche-heavy look at big-time college football circa 1993. Omar Epps is good. James Caan is surprisingly nuanced as a morally conflicted head coach.
