Ready to cry?

It’s not a question of if, but when, in the king of emotional sports movies.

Do you wait until Jimmy Chitwood, the man of few words, leans in and tells his teammates, “I’ll make it,” before hitting the state title-winning shot?

When Gene Hackman’s battered and bruised coach finds redemption, telling his players, “I love you guys?”

Maybe the moment when Dennis Hopper’s alcoholic former star, drying out in a hospital bed, listens to his son achieve the dream his old man was denied?

Naw, let’s face it. All I need is Jerry Goldsmith’s opening theme.
