    Having seen that comment in the trailer, I believe the speaker was being ironic...something hard to convey in text.

    I would like to see the movie

    I am not a movie goer type, so its rare that a move catches my eye, but this would be great to see. I love the part where the guy gets into the carton and everyone is laughing and joking.

    The pity thing about atracting women...thats gota be a joke, or sarcasm.

    I saw the trailer, so I wasn't going on just reading the quote, and I didn't perceive him as being ironic. Maybe in the context of the film, with more of the interview shown, I'll think otherwise. But he actually seemed to be saying that for real, not in jest. -shrug-

    Cool

    sounds really great!

    From Roger Ebert's review:
    The movie works first of all as an astonishing sports documentary. The rules are simple: When you have the ball, you have to dribble or pass within 10 seconds. Cross the goal line with the ball, and you score. Degrees of disability are rated from 0.5 to 3.0, and a team is allowed to field players totaling eight points. One of the best American players has no lower arms or legs.

    The players are strapped into their customized chairs, and a good thing, too, because one of the ways you play the game is to crash into an opponent and try to knock his chair over. That happens a lot. Before their injuries, these guys were jocks. They still are.
