'Any Given Sunday' Was Ahead of Its Time, But Is Al Pacino a Player's Coach?

Many of the themes in 'Any Given Sunday' hold up surprisingly well in 2019, whether you've seen the movie a dozen times or are catching it for the first time.
By Conor Orr and Mitch Goldich ,

The MMQB’s Conor Orr and Mitch Goldich have brought back the second installment of our Football Movies podcast. This time they dive into the star-studded 1999 flick Any Given Sunday.

Conor guides Mitch through his first viewing of this time capsule of an era, featuring a Discman, a classic music video and lots of MET-Rx protein. Also Al Pacino, Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, Jim Brown, Lawrence Taylor, LL Cool J and more.

Is Al Pacino a player’s coach? Why is this movie so long? In what ways was it ahead of its time?
