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
  • Vince Papale is actually a native of Delaware County, PA. His home, the High School he taught at, and the bar in which he worked, are all located in the towns of Glenolden and Prospect Park, respectively. Disney executives decided on making Papale from South Philadelphia as this more neatly fit the script, and was more easily identifiable to a national audience. He taught at Interboro High School, located on Amosland Avenue, Prospect Park PA. The bar in which he worked is now called "Pogue Mahones," located on Chester Pike in Prospect Park, PA.
  • The climatic touchdown that Vince Papale scores against the Giants off the fumbled punt is based on a real play. The actual play can be seen during a montage in the closing credits. However, Papale was not awarded a touchdown for his effort. The referees called the play a "muff", not a fumble, and thus the ball cannot be advanced beyond the drop.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): There were no players on the 1976 Eagles roster named TJ Banks or Dean German, however they are both mentioned numerous time throughout the movie.
  • In the game scene at Texas Stadium against the Dallas Cowboys, the Eagles actually come out of the Dallas Cowboy home tunnel and are on the actual Dallas Cowboy home sidelines. This was done due to the sunlight coming in from the top of the stadium and affecting the cameras. You'll notice that on screen Dallas Cowboys have tremendous amount of sun on their sidelines where as the Eagles don't.
