Before we dive into American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story, let me say this: it’s a dream of mine to write a movie someday, so most of the people involved in this project are literally living out my dream. I am not trying intentionally disparage the work of anyone involved in this — I am merely providing the bridge between you, the reader, and the greater opinion of the world wide web. And let me tell ya, the internet has been having an absolute field day with American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story, which released its first trailer/featurette this morning:

Not only were football fans generally surprised by the news of a Kurt Warner movie but were stunned by the quality of the trailer, which is perhaps best described as looking like one of those aggressively upbeat pharmaceutical commercials for medicines like Cialis or Allegra.

Here’s the official synopsis for American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story, via IMDB:

The story of NFL MVP and Hall of Fame quarterback, Kurt Warner, who went from stocking shelves at a supermarket to becoming an American Football star.
