"Hoosiers" is the story of a tiny Indiana high school basketball team with a head coach with a checkered past - a group that somehow becomes contenders for glory. It's worth watching, and watching again after that.
Wilbur "Shooter" Flatch (Dennis Hopper) is the town drunk who becomes an assistant coach after Normal Dale (Gene Hackman) discovers his encyclopedic knowledge of high school basketball in "Hoosiers." A great movie!
George: Uhhh, the coach is dismissed by a vote of 48 to 25... Opal Fleener: I think we should vote again! Rollin: All those in favor of the coach staying, say 'Aye' [majority of crowd says aye] Rollin: All opposed... [a handful say nay] Rollin: ... Coach stays!
