Murderball

This movie was sweet. Quadriplegic rugby? Yes, please! These guys are total studs. They may have limited limb function, but they are hosses. Look at Zupan, on the right. He's all tattooed and muscle-y and stuff. And Hogsett, all the way to the left, has broken fingers, his elbow, and his nose playing murderball... and he's in a wheelchair! Full contact sports with wheelchairs - it can't get any better.

Even without the hot guys in wheelchairs, this movie was pretty awesome. It's pretty uplifting, seeing what amazing athletes these guys are, and how they joke around about their disabilities (there's a scene involving an amputee and a cardboard box that is hilarious). I love that the filmmakers paint the Canadians as the bad guys, because there always has to be a rivalry in a sports movie, and the Canadian coach is the baddest of all bad guys. And we meet the families and girlfriends of these guys, and see them drinking beer and wrestling each other... really, it was great. I've been wanting to see this movie for months, and now I did and it was great. It's out on DVD, so rent it as soon as you can. It might not be suitable for your young kids, but I hear there's a PG version out there that is... but I would just get the R version, 'cause it's super funny and you get to watch part of a video on quadriplegic sex. Intrigued? Get the movie!

But Amanda, I thought you could spell anything, as long as it isn't some horses#it medical term.
