There is a fantasy football movie

10 Yards Fantasy Football Trailer via Josh Caldwell on Vimeo

…and it looks awesome. It’s called 10 Yards. Thoughts?

From Award-Winning Filmmakers, Hunter Weeks and Josh Caldwell (10 MPH, 2007) comes the hilarious, offbeat, and all-encompassing portrayal of fantasy football. 10 Yards captures the phenomenon of fantasy football in our society with specific focus on wacked-out j.fred’s INTERGALACTIC CHAMPIONSHIP League, where the top prize is a box of Twinkies ®. As the season progresses, filmmakers Hunter & Josh (both members of j.fred’s league) travel the country interviewing a variety of diverse fantasy football leagues, NFL players, commentators, and the guys who started it all in 1963. From all women’s tackle football to Mexican mariachi bands, get ready for some of the best camaraderie ever in this 90-minute fantasyland.

    I think this is a great idea for a movie, especially since it has never been done before. I am 21 years old, and every single one of my guy friends get so into Fantasy Football. My boyfriend is a complete fanatic, and even keeps a notebook every year of his stats. If you're looking for a candidate to interview and get insight, he would be perfect. My email address if aadelane@indiana.edu if you're at all interested. Good luck with the movie, and I will be sure to catch it when it comes out!

    Actually, Alice, I wasn't involved with the creation of this movie, but I did recently post a review of it now that it is out on DVD and on iTunes. You can read my review here: http://bit.ly/62rwS

    You should check it out when you get the chance.

    I am really glad to have run into this post. I had no idea that a movie existed that went into the depth of fantasy football leagues as much as this one has. I look forward to seeing where I may obtain this and see how it is. Thanks much.
