Blu-ray Review: Division III Football's Finest

Title: Division III: Football’s Finest

Directed by: Marshall Cook

Starring: Andy Dick, Marshall Cook, Mo Collins, Will Sasso, Debra Wilson and Adam Carolla

Running time: 98 minutes, Rated R, Available on DVD

When the Pulham Blue Cocks (tee hee) coach drops dead after getting ice water thrown on him after a game, the college brings in coach Rick Vice, a crazy redneck idiot with a passion for football.  Mitch, the reluctant 2nd string quarterback doesn’t really want to take orders from a desperate d-bag coach, but is willing to play while he attempts to get the attention of the school’s new trainer.  With coach Vice’s almost sadistic methods, the team manages to pull itself out of last place.

I love Andy Dick, but I didn’t love his annoying and overwhelming jerk-off of a character. While director Marshall Cook did a decent job as Mitch,  I have an pet peeve with directors casting themselves as the leads. You would think that hiring some of the better cast members of MadTV (minus Michael McDonald & Orlando Jones) that you would get good jokes, instead there was a lot of over the top and almost embarrassingly futile attempts to garner a laugh.  Then the constantly picking on the morbidly obese coach assistant got tiresome as well.

The special features include outtakes that were actually shown at the end credits – just bigger, deleted scenes and audio commentary by Andy Dick and Marshall Cook – which to me was more entertaining than the movie itself. Some interesting factoids I learned from the commentary: Marshall Cook used his laptop to edit the film and the teabagging scene was real, and actually took several takes.

To get to the point, I won’t be watching Division III again. I actually had to break up my viewing over a few days because I just couldn’t get into it. I’m a geek, and sports movies bore the crap out of me; regardless that it’s a comedy.

Total rating: D
