Same Old Formula Keeps Real Stories In The Shadows

My old buddy Steven Wells lays a precision guided groin shot to the "Hollywood Americana Sports Movie Machine" with his view on movies about sports made for a purely American audience (hence the insipid choice of a baseball remake for Fever Pitch).
He is absolutely correct when he says that, in Hollywood-logic, "You don't mess with a winning formula." (Barf!)
I think we American soccer fans should all consider ourselves lucky he only knows about "The Game Of Their Lives", but hasn't seen it yet.
