must see TV, at its best
i've seen this film a number of times. it is a great sports film. it is filmed well, has great actors, and the script has a wonderful storyline.
In response to this being American Arrogance, you're wrong. the movie doesn't just focus on America, but also British, Greek, and Austrialian athletes. The American athletes don't win everything, and in fact some of them are rude, bad, angry, drunks, and they lose. yeah the American anthem is played a lot, but if you've ever been to an olympics, anthems are played a lot, and the British, Greek, Austrialian and other anthems are also played. In fact in certain points it glorifies Greece, and the world for organizing the first olympic games.
this is one of those movies that if you like sports, it should def be on your must see list.
