Moving story of a great coach...
30 June 2002 | by BSSSee all my reviews

It's hard to fit this man's whole story into a two-hour TV movie, but this is still a moving tribute to Jim Valvano, his lust for life, and his adherence to a "Don't ever give up" attitude. I would have liked to have seen a more complete picture of Valvano, especially more of the story behind the allegations of misconduct at NC State, but two hours isn't enough to cover everything, and I believe the picture accomplished everything it set out to do. 6 out of 10.
