Great price for what looks like a great Disney film. I've ordered one. Its about an american football player so its good if you're into your sports.

The story of the misfit outsider who rises through the ranks of a professional sport to enjoy inexplicable success has been stamped into celluloid more times than most folks can remember. INVINCIBLE tells the tale of bartender Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg), a down-on-his-luck former teacher who decides to answer an open tryout for the Philadelphia Eagles. It doesn't take a genius to work out what happens next, but the twist here is that Vince Papale is a real person, and the story is based on his eyebrow-raising memoir of the same name. Papale's call-up to the Eagles occurred in 1976, so the flowery fashions and long flowing locks worn by both men and women of the era are all immaculately replicated by director Ericson Core's carefully styled cast. When Eagles coach Dick Vermeil (Greg Kinnear) throws his last, desperate roll of the dice and recruits Papale, he faces open hostility from his team of professionals. Papale also has to catch a few jibes at his expense, especially as he's a little old to be a professional football player. As the ill-fitting future star jostles with his teammates and strives to prove himself in the team, a host of '70s hits rip through the soundtrack, and subplots about a jealous friend (Dov Davidoff) and a lover (Elizabeth Banks) are utilized to lure in non-sports fans.

Well thats the description above

Great price for blu-ray as well

Enjoy

Not the best film in the world anyway. I'm a fan of American Football though... This films shows Vince Papale rising above everything and making it to the NFL in real life though, the open tryouts did happen BUT Vince Papale didn't attend them. The Head Coach of the Eagles, Dick Vermeil saw a video tape of Papale playing semi-pro and invited him to a workout/tryout. Also, at the end it says "he played three seasons there" and whatever else which would be good for his age but in those 3 years he only ever scored 2 touchdowns and one of those was a fumble recovery and in those three years he caught ONE pass for 15 yards. Basically, he was there for three years but all he ever did was chase the ball down after the kick off.
