Best Movies Mentioning MI Sports?
The Big Chill
Posted By: WingNut10100101010101

Typically writers write what they know and places they know. Being a Michigan Graduate, Lawrence Kasdan always seems to make reference to the Great State of Michigan and Big Blue any chance he gets.

In the Movie, the Big Chill, a baby-boomer classic, a group of University of Michigan friends spend a few days together after the suicide of one of the group (originally played by Kevin Kostner, but cut out of the movie). They often make reference to Ann Arbor and the University as some of the best days of their lives.

But the real reason this is my nomination for Best Movies mentioning MI sports is because even if you hate all the analysis and melodramatic subplots, you will love about ten minutes in the middle - football Saturday!!! The whole gang gets their gear on for Michigan against Ohio State - Bo Schemblacker, Anthony Carter, the real deal. And, the acting is right on: Kevin Kline, Glen Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt all get into it! They are on every play. It's what they live for and that isn't fiction; it's reality. They top it off with a little back-yard game of their own, just like we have all done and it feels like home.

Well done, Mr. Kasdan. You are definitely true Blue and have captured emotion that is part of all of Michigan fans lives.
