Drumline (2002)

A snare/axatse-rolling celebration of black marching-band musicians and halftime college sports traditions, Drumline is a high-energy fish-out-of-water comedy about what happens around the football it intersects only momentarily – brought to life by a feisty and convivial Nick Cannon. 6/10.
