Undefeated (2011)

Undefeated is a documentary about a Memphis high school football team of underprivileged kids that came from a history of never winning a game to a district championship. The film focuses on the coach and a few of the kids as it drones on and on. Not that it's not an aspirational and heart-warming and touching film, but it just drags on and on. In reality, it's under 2 hours, but it feels like a 6-12 episode mini-series. What's really scary is that about half-way through you think you might have seen it before, just re-confirming the conclusion that, as fine a movie as it might be, it's one that you try to banish from your memory because of the pain of how it drones on and on. You likely will have no idea why you watched it to the end.
