View All Videos View All Photos Movie Info. A small, turbulent town in Texas obsesses over their high school football team to an unhealthy degree.
When the star tailback, Boobie Miles Derek Luke , is seriously injured during the first game of the season, all hope is lost, and the town's dormant social problems begin to flare up.
It is left to the inspiring abilities of new coach Gary Gaines Billy Bob Thornton to instill in the other team members -- and, by proxy, the town itself -- a sense of self-respect and honor.

Edit Did You Know? Trivia Connie Britton and Brad Leland both had roles in the original Friday Night Lights movie, also directed by series creator Peter Berg.
Their roles were identical to those they have in the series, the coach's wife and a football booster respectively. Goofs During the episodes showing Coach Taylor visiting, and subsequently working at, the fictional Texas Methodist University, the end-zones of the field have "Texas State" written on them.
Quotes Eric Taylor : Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't lose. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Report this. The Panthers fall behind, and Gaines puts Miles in out of desperation, but Miles is soon injured again.
Winchell leads a comeback drive, but Permian loses as his final pass flies over the receiver's hands. After the game, Billingsley fights with his drunk father, who throws his state championship ring onto the side of the freeway.
The next morning, Don reveals to his father that he recovered the championship ring and gives it back to him. Charles partially apologizes and makes the point that his state championship was the best thing that happened to him, and he now has nothing happy except those memories.
The loss puts Permian in a three-way tie for first place with Lee and Abilene Cooper, and a coin toss is held to determine which two teams make the playoffs.
Permian and Lee win the toss, and as the Panthers prepare for the playoffs, Miles clears his locker. While in his uncle's car, he cries about his future in football becoming bleak.
Permian is successful in the playoffs, but all eyes are on the state powerhouse Dallas Carter High School.
Permian and Carter make it to the state championship game, which is held at the Astrodome. Miles rejoins the team and watches from the sidelines as the Panthers head into the game.
They are initially overwhelmed by Carter's superior size and fall behind, but mount a comeback in the second half to pull within one score.
The defense improves its tackling, and the offense pushes through despite injuries. After a defensive stop, Winchell, Comer, and Billingsley mount a final drive, but Comer and Billingsley are injured.
Billingsley goes back in, and holds onto the ball for a big run, but it is called back for a holding penalty.
On fourth down, Winchell is stopped just short of the goal line as the clock runs out, and Carter wins the championship.
Afterwards, Gaines removes the outgoing seniors from his depth chart, and it is revealed that Winchell, Billingsley, Miles, and Chavez went on to have successful lives after their football careers ended, with only Christian receiving a Division I scholarship.
The movie ends with the statement that Gaines and Comer led Permian to an undefeated state championship season the following year.
In the movie, the team was depicted as practicing in full pads and with full contact on the first day of practice.
Under rules of the University Interscholastic League UIL , the governing body for Texas public school sports, teams cannot use pads or hit until the 4th day of practice however, in the deleted scenes included in the DVD, a non-pad practice was shown.
The soundtrack for the film predominantly featured post-rock band Explosions in the Sky. Music by Daniel Lanois and rock band Bad Company were also included.
Other songs in the film were "Just Got Paid" by ZZ Top during the montage of the Panthers' road to the finals; the pump up song featured as the team ran through the tunnel in the game against Dallas Carter was "New Noise" by the seminal Swedish punk band Refused.
During the start of the third quarter during the Championship game, the song " I Wanna Be Your Dog " by The Stooges was used.
Three songs from Public Enemy 's album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back were also used prominently.
Reviews of the film were highly positive. They learn that Joe McCoy wants Taylor replaced with Wade Aikmen, J. After the school's administration meets to decide who gets the coaching job, Aikmen is offered the job at Dillon High School, while Taylor is offered the job of coaching at recently reopened East Dillon High School.
Billy and Mindy's wedding ends the season. Season 4 kicks off with Eric Taylor struggling as the East Dillon High coach. The team, field and conditions are a complete change from the privileged and sparkling conditions at West Dillon.
East Dillon High resembles Odessa High from the source novel Friday Night Lights , Permian High's sister school and the home of the Odessa Bronchos, with whom they have an annual rivalry match which divides the town.
The East Dillon Lions and Odessa Bronchos both wear red uniforms and are considered underdogs to the Panthers.
Additionally, Odessa High and East Dillon are both underfunded and considered inferior compared to their rival school, and serve a predominantly poor minority community.
Additionally, the school district boundaries between East and West Dillon were intentionally drawn to ensure the majority of talented players would be zoned for West Dillon; the districts between Permian and Odessa High were drawn in a similar manner.
As Coach begins putting together his new Lion team, he realizes he's in for more than he bargained for. The players who try out are less than desirable, but Coach gets a lucky break with a couple of new faces.
The first is Vince Howard Michael B. Jordan , a student who has gotten in trouble with the law too many times. He is given one last chance if he plays football for the East Dillon Lions.
Although he has no prior football experience, he has natural talent and becomes the team's first star quarterback. The second break comes to the Lions when Buddy Garrity reveals to Eric that the address on file for the Panthers new prodigy running back, Luke Cafferty, is nothing more than a mailbox in front of an empty lot, and Luke is really zoned for East Dillon.
Tami is faced with a struggle as the principal of West Dillon. A new character on the show, Becky, is introduced when Tim Riggins rents a trailer on her mother's property.
Although she is in love with Tim, she and Luke are both shopping at a convenience store and she allows Luke to drive her home. The two have sex and Becky becomes pregnant.
Even though she is a student at East Dillon, she seeks out Tami's help with the situation. Tami discusses all of the options with her and Becky decides to get an abortion.
Her mother goes with her to the procedure. Parents find out about this and led by Luke's mother, seek Mrs. Taylor's dismissal as principal. When Tami refuses to apologize, as she followed procedure, she is put on leave.
She decides to return to her role as a guidance counselor, but at East Dillon. The football season is one focused on growth and reestablishing a sense of Lion pride.
The culmination of their hard work is tested in their last game of the season as they play the Dillon Panthers led by J.
In an amazing show of perseverance, the East Dillon Lions defeat the Dillon Panthers, ruining the Panthers' playoff chances. In season four, Matt Saracen struggles with staying in Dillon and living as a townie.
He turned down an art school in Chicago and is instead studying art at the local technical college. After returning from a hunting trip with Tim Riggins, he finds out that his father was killed in Iraq.
The episode "The Son" shows Matt going through the five stages of grief as he comes to accept the death of his father, a man he claims to hate.
This episode garnered much buzz online and resulted in a failed campaign for Zach Gilford to get an Emmy nomination in the guest actor category; however, the episode did get an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series.
After this emotionally charged episode, Matt abruptly moves to Chicago without saying goodbye to his girlfriend or best friend.
He returns briefly in the finale and makes amends with both Julie and Landry, who ends up flying back to Chicago with Matt.
The character of Tim Riggins has developed over time from an unfocused and moody alcoholic to a young man of character and dependability.
Sometimes that dependability is reflected in his uncanny ability to make the wrong choices for the right reasons, which usually involve his brother.
Even though he has proven his ability to help others correct their misguided choices, unfortunately there is no one who does this for Tim. In this season, his irresponsible, headstrong, but lovable brother again entices Tim into another wrong choice by convincing Tim that the only way they can make any money is by transforming their newly opened garage into a chop shop.
Just as they finally end this side business and Tim has enough for the down payment on a large amount of land he's been dreaming about, the police show up to arrest him at the garage.
The police officers recognize Tim as "number 33" giving Tim no chance to deny that it's his chop shop. True to his character, he makes the decision to take the rap and allows his brother to be with his new wife and child.
The season ends as Tim walks toward the jail. Season 5, the final season, opens with summer wrapping up in Dillon: Billy Riggins joins Coach Taylor as a special teams coach for the East Dillon Lions.
Tami is the new guidance counselor at East Dillon, where she is faced with the challenge of a particularly difficult student named Epyck. Landry is departing for Rice University , and Tim Riggins has three more months in jail.
Becky experiences turmoil in her living situation and moves in with Billy and Mindy and develops a family of her own with them, while also developing a closer relationship with Luke.
With Vince leading the Lions, along with Luke Cafferty, new recruit Hastings Ruckle, and the rest of the team standing strong behind him, Eric Taylor has strong hopes for the team to go to state.
But as Vince's past comes back to haunt him, it seems that the team will have to deal with struggles off the field, as well as on.
Vince's troubles also cause his relationship with Jess to take a hit. Julie's college experience is nothing like she imagined, and after she experiences a difficult situation involving her history TA, she is forced to take a good look at what she wants.
Buddy Garrity becomes a father again when Buddy Jr. He's pleased when his son becomes a Lions football player. Julie looks for support first from her parents, and then from her old boyfriend Matt Saracen, who is living in Chicago and attending art school.

After they spend the night together, she asks Tim to show her his land, and the episode closes with Tyra asking, "Alaska, Tim? In the last episode, East Dillon wins the state championship after Coach Taylor and Vince share a moment of respect for each other.
