Watch: Taylor Lautner Not Awful in 'Field of Dreams 2: NFL Lockout'
Obviously, since we're pretty well-focused on films, there's really no mentions of sports here unless an athlete is getting a biopic, or this year's inspirational sports film about a team facing adversity gets a new trailer. Therefore, you may not know that the National Football League is in a bit of a crisis as they and the NFL Players' Association are in negotiations to install a new collective bargaining agreement before the 2011 season. However, if they can't come to an agreement soon, there might not be any football to be played. Thankfully, the trailer for Field of Dreams 2: NFL Lockout is here to make light of the situation.
Here's the trailer for Field of Dreams 2: NFL Lockout courtesy of Funny or Die:
From time to time, we're pretty critical of The Twilight Saga star Taylor Lautner, mostly because he seems like nothing more than an action figure who can't display much genuine emotion on the big screen. Of course, as long as his shirt is off, his target audience really doesn't care if he acts like a robot most of the time. However, in this hilarious joke trailer for Field of Dreams 2: NFL Lockout, he comes through magnificently. It might be simply because he's supposed to be melodramatic, but that's just fine with me. You sports fans out there should appreciate all the athlete cameos and there's some bit parts for Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert and a certain star from the first Field of Dreams too.

Yeah the best is the very end so stay for that:P Also, is it just me or did the just nail the camera angles of Field of Dreams even down to that sort of 80's looking faded look to the shots?

Man, talk about a high production spoof. GOD, I WANT TO BE A PLUGGED INTO THAT! They must have a blast on set

Caught this on ESPN, and I was also surprised by how good Lautner was.

not enough tops off for me, but I don't find the NFL humerous, so maybe that's it. that must've cost over £100,000 and that's being reasonable, it wasn't that funny.

What if they made it about "futbol"?

Football is just as bad Cody, it appears to be a sport played by sexual predators on the most part, at least in my country, they do like to get a bit rapey. The fans aren't much better, the secretary at my old work used to be asked by her ex-boyfriend to dress up in a football strip with his favourite players name and number on it and he'd take her from behind. Y'know, that's weird huh? Also the violence related to football in my country is extra dumb, some guy tried to pick a fight with me the other week because he believed I didn't support the same team as him. I told him that I didn't like football but if he wished to continue abusing me and gesturing toward a violent confrontation, I'd cave his skull in. It annoys me that people like that even breath air. I actually played for the team he was shouting about as a child, til I discovered beer, art and girls. Football is like religion for some men, I get it, some people have gaping voids in their life and can't relate to each other, so the support of a group of men running round a park for 90 minutes, for a short time gives them some sort of collective unity and pride in something meaningless.

Not to be freudian, but people who express such negativity towards others, even if it is deserved, are often really using others to express what they inwardly feel about themselves. Sorry, but it's true.

Fair play Robert, but after much internal thought and a great deal of living life without such things as sporting events I realise for a small period of my life, maybe 7 years or so, up until I was aged 13, I did want to play for a football team and actually managed it, but I grew out of it and got into other things. So as much as Freud is great and everything it isn't really true, for further reading you could have a look at this short clip to give you an idea of why I tired of football. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J32V0tyiM9Q

I guess what struck me was the semi-blanket statement you made: 'it appears to be a sport played by sexual predators on the most part'. In my experience, knuckleheads are still the minority. Perhaphs what seems to magnify the knucklehead syndrom is the complacency of others, plus the tendency of media to expound the knucklehead. I don't know...just my observations, not written in stone. I shouldn't have ended with, 'Sorry, but it's true', because it may be true much of the time while not true some of the time. I just try to remember that for every ignorant act that makes us cringe, there are still many profoundly unsung people who treat themselves and others with dignity. THX

Too bad it's just a joke trailer 🙁 I loved Field Of Dreams and this looked like it could be a great followup to the original.

He wasn't awful...but i wasn't that impressed either.

I dont like sport movies :/... I just dont get the excitment for it, like i like "Remember the Titans" but that was more about tensions between blacks and whites in that time, but a movie where a team sucks at the beginning then wins the big game at the end of the movie by one point... No really exciting for me
