Invincible

"Dreams are not lived on the sidelines"

Inspired by the true story of Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg), a man with nothing to lose who ignored the staggering odds and made his dream come true. When the coach (Greg Kinnear) of Papale's beloved hometown football team hosted an unprecedented open tryout, the public consensus was that it was a waste of time -- no one good enough to play professional football was going to be found this way.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): In the film, Vince Papale's wife is portrayed as a woman who moved to Philly from New York and was a huge Giants fan. At a recent speaking engagement in Mt. Laurel, NJ, Papale said his wife was born and raised in Philadelphia and is an enthusiastic Eagles fan. He said his wife didn't even watch the Giants' Super Bowl win last year. "My life must have been too boring for a movie so they had to make some things up," he said.
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): The location of Veterans Stadium in relation to the Walt Whitman (III) Bridge is incorrect in the movie. The Vet was farther west (away from the bridge). Also, The Vet was south of I-76 (the road on the bridge), not north of the road as implied in the movie.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): In the movie timeline, the Philadelphia Eagles hire Dick Vermeil after Vince and the guys play their pickup football game. The movie says the game was played 6 months after the Eagles-Bengals game, which would be early June. However, the Eagles hired Vermeil in February 1976, four months before the pickup football game would have been played.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In the scene where Vince comes into his room at the training center and finds Dennis Franks sitting on the bed, Franks says that Vermeil is trying to shake things up by "putting veterans with rookies and rookies with veterans". But, Vince Papale and Dennis Franks were both rookies in 1976. Franks was undrafted out of the University of Michigan that year.
