Training Rules

Training Rules

Rene Portland had three training rules during her 26 years coaching basketball at Pennsylvania State University - no drinking, no drugs and no lesbians. Training Rules, examines how a wealthy athletic department, enabled by the silence of a complacent university, allowed talented athletes, thought to be gay, to be dismissed from their college team. The film follows the lawsuit filed in 2006 against Portland and Penn State by student athlete Jennifer Harris. This high profile case ignited the world of women’s collegiate sports. It inspired the discussions so sorely needed to end discrimination based on sexual orientation that pervades all organized sport.

Examines how women's collegiate sports, caught in a web of homophobic practices, collude in the destruction of the lives and dreams of many of its most talented athletes. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Sgt C (ru) wrote: (54%)A throwback of sorts to the frothy romantic comedies of the 50's and 60's, only here it stars Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt rather than Cary Grant, Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, or maybe even Marilyn Monroe. And it's not just the inclusion of swing music in the soundtrack, but also the general look and feel in which this is assembled together; also the mostly light-hearted nature and bubbly concept has a trace of a past period's charm. Gibson is on very good form here in the leading role in which he clearly put a lot of effort into, and the premise is used fairly well with enough humour and bite to the writing for the movie to never really bog down or become overly silly. At around 2 hours long it does stretch itself too far, and the parts dealing with a depressed co-worker drags the movie out and poorly fits in with everything else this has in terms of tone. For what it is, and how awful it could have been, this is a perfectly good entry into Gibson's filmography.

Lots of anti-nuclear messages here. Got too bizarre with the church service worshipping the bomb. Was disappointed Nova only got to speak one word in two films.

Kilo D (au) wrote: Just caught this on TV on time, so to be fair I'm giving it 7 instead of 6, which was my feeling. Rent it primarily if you want to see these actors young, secondarily if you like the idea of taking over and barricading a military academy, and other than that, it's not really a war movie.

Wes S (kr) wrote: It's not too exciting, and the missing werewolf effects (replaced with a real scary wolf) kinda stands apart from the other effect-driven werewolf movies of the 80's. But there are creepy moments, thrilling scenes, and some gory bits. Overall, it's forgettable but not a waste of time.
