“UNDERDOGS is a heartwarming crowd-pleaser.” - Mario McKellop, Examiner.com
Underdogs was an independent movie that got rave reviews from critics at the Cleveland International Film Festival and a number of other film festivals.
It only had a short theater run because the independent movie company, One In A Row Films, put all of its money into the movie and left very little for theater promotion. When it played in theaters, audiences would cheer during the movie and gave it a standing ovation at the end.
Critics said that the movie had superb acting, a great twisting plot that kept you on the edge of your seat, and had great cinematography. (And the movie includes the founding story of the EdenPURE® Infrared Heater!)
The energized cast did the movie out of a labor of love because they thought the script was so great.
This cast included D.B. Sweeney (The Cutting Edge, Memphis Belle), William Mapother (Mission: Impossible II, In The Bedroom), Joe Namath (history’s ultimate underdog – his 18-point underdog New York Jets won the 1969 Super Bowl against the Baltimore Colts), Richard Portnow (The Sopranos, Trumbo), Logan Huffman (V, A Smile As Big As The Moon), Maddie Hasson (A Light Beneath Their Feet, Impulse), Charlie Carver (Desperate Housewives, Teen Wolf), Melora Walters (Boogie Nights, Dead Poets Society), and Australian singer-songwriter Natalie Imbruglia.
Logan Huffman gave an Academy Award-worthy performance as reported by a number of critics.
