Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Touchback is an uplifting "do-over drama" about a high school football star who gets a second chance to replay the big game in which a debilitating injury ends his sports career. As the clock ticks down, he's forced to decide what's really important. There are some thought-provoking moments as he compares the love of friends and family to the prospect of fame and glory -- but there's also some swearing ("crap," "ass," etc.), some hard hits on the football field, some drinking, a few kisses, and a scene in which teens go skinny dipping (no graphic nudity). But on the whole, this is a feel-good sports film that's appropriate for families with teens to watch and discuss.
