In 1972, hoping for a shot at glory, underdog Taft High challenged their meanest rival, Bakersfield, to the annual football game. But when Jack "Butterfingers" Dundee (Robin Williams) dropped the ball instead of making the big play, Taft was defeated and star quarterback Reno Hightower (Kurt Russell) has never let him live it down. Now, 13 years later, Dundee wants the chance to redeem himself, no matter what it takes! His only solution is to play Bakersfield again - with the same team! But for the Taft team, getting into shape could not be tougher! A hilarious film full of heart and charm, THE BEST OF TIMES makes good on the American dream. Join the team that wants to win for all the right reasons!
