I am very surprised I did not post this when I first saw it in the theatres. Also surprised no one else has seen this. Anyhow, just re-watched it on DVD.

What a tremendous film. Inspiring to the n'th degree. A great story, a great human drama - wheelchair or not.

A very high recommendation. Suitable for all POTs and PLONTs.

And for you plonters... the DVD comes with bonus material including an episode of Jackass featuring the dudes from Murderball.

This is a sports movie.
