Sports movies, with all the requisite clichés attached, are a dime a dozen, and no one has done them better in recent years than Disney. With every year, the roster lengthens, and now includes all of the four major sports, plus golf. The thing that distinguishes Glory Road is that, like Remember the Titans, it expands the fabric to embrace social issues. The film transpires in the mid-1960s in Texas, when skin color was crucial to a person's acceptance. It's this aspect of Glory Road (which takes a more honest approach than the aforementioned Remember the Titans) that elevates the movie above the usual underdogs-win-all motion picture.
