'Invincible' grabs box office crown

"Feel good" movies are not often my favorites, but this one looks like one:
"Invincible" stars (Mark) Wahlberg as Vince Papale, a substitute teacher who made the Eagles' special-teams squad in open tryouts. The movie was the latest success among Disney's inspirational sports tales, which include the baseball flick "The Rookie" and the hockey saga "Miracle."
"Invincible" was the #1 movie at the box office this weekend.

Right next to Penn State, I am an absolute fan of all sports Philadelphia, especially the Phillies, Eagles, and Villanova Wildcat basketball. I've only seen the preview, but it looks good. It can't hurt that the movie is about the Eagles. If you've seen it, let me know what you think.
