The Texas State Armadillos are fourth down and nowhere-to-go after a corruption scandal nearly ends the football program. Now upstanding coach Ed Gennero (Hector Elizondo) must put together a brand-new team.

For the position of quarterback, Gennero recruits Paul Blake (Scott Bakula), a 34-year-old former high school star whose field of dreams turned out to be the family farm. Blake still has the arm, but can he score with a team that includes a samurai lineman, a butterfingered receiver, and a Samoan strongman with the eyes for the placekicker?

Necessary Roughness (1991) is a sports movie starring Scott Bakula, Hector Elizondo, Harley Jane Kozak, Sinbad, Rob Schneider and Robert Loggia.

Paul Blake (Bakula) is a 30-something former American Football player who missed the chance to play college football. He is persuaded to join a team of misfits and oddballs by tough-but-fair coach Ed Gennero (Elizondo).

Bakula is great in the lead role and Harley Jane Kozak shines as his leading lady. Former pro-football player Sinbad is very funny and Robert Loggia is superb as tough-as-nails coach Wally Rig.

Director Stan Dragoti (Mr Mom) does a great job of balancing the comedy with the exciting sports footage. Necessary Roughness is a very funny sports drama. Its alot of fun even if your not a fan of American football.

The film is always fun, but I've noticed some "big" differences from the italian tv version: some dubbing actors are different! It's a pity because the voices in italian version are really appropriate for the main characters. I gave 3stars only due to this italian "neutral" voices, with italian version's voices this would be a 4stars fun film for me
