The team is down by six with two seconds to play. Can the quarterback find the courage to battle his demons, humiliate the preppy bullies on campus, win back the heart of his estranged girlfriend, and steal a championship for his recently deceased coach? If you’ve seen any teen sports movies from the ’80s, of course you know the answer—and so does Andrew Disney, director of Intramural, a hilarious satire of every sports-underdog cliché in cinema history. The film starts with Caleb (Jake Lacy, “The Office”) and a group of misfits playing intramural college football in an almost empty stadium. Caleb wins the game with a trick play, but, as a result, his best friend Grant (Nick Kocher) is paralyzed. Skip to four years later and Caleb, a fifth-year senior stuck in a loveless relationship with the spoiled Vicky (Kate McKinnon from “Saturday Night Live”), has given up football to prepare reluctantly for law school. When he meets up with one of his former players, Caleb knows he must get the old ragtag team back together to avenge Grant, vanquish his muscle-headed nemesis, Dick (Beck Bennett, also from “SNL”), and impress the nerdy-hot-but-doesn’t-know-it dream girl, Meredith (Nikki Reed, the Twilight saga). Filled with uproarious performances by improv comics, absurd motivational speeches, and lots of tube socks, Intramural knows what it means to have the “Eye of the Tiger.”
