Academy Award winner Al Pacino and Cameron Diaz lead a stellar cast in Oscar winner Oliver Stone's hard-hitting homage to the gridiron gladiators of Any Given Sunday. Tony D'Amato (Pacino), head coach of football's two-time champion Miami Sharks, desperately tries to hold his now losing team together. With seasoned quarterback Jack "Cap" Rooney (Dennis Quaid) injured and past his prime, third-string player Willie Beamen (Jamie Foxx) powers the Sharks to a playoff spot. At odds with Beamen's renegade style and loyal to Cap, D'Amato returns the veteran to the starting lineup, a choice that rankles young, aggressive team owner Christina Pagniacci (Cameron Diaz), who views a winning squad only as a marketable commodity. Pressured and disillusioned, D'Amato must win at any cost or suffer the defeat of his career.
