As Dodge and Carter compete for the affections of a spirited reporter, Lexie Littleton (Renée Zellweger), their rivalry off the field threatens to undermine their success on the field. The movie explores themes of ambition, loyalty, and love, set against the backdrop of the roaring twenties and the rise of professional football.

Despite its underwhelming performance, the film is regarded by some as a charming and entertaining period piece with a talented cast and witty humor.
