Crooked players. Crooked coaches. Crooked boosters. Faked math tests. Faked urine tests. Linemen with backed-up brains. A suicidal quarterback who reads SI while lying faceup on a median strip in a busy highway. These are the virtues of The Program, the season's other college football blockbuster. Unfortunately, they're the only virtues. The dopey script was cowritten by Aaron Latham, whose Perfect, a 1985 bomb about an aerobic instructor, may be the worst movie in the history of the cinema.
The Program isn't far from Perfect.
