        Rugby is a ruffian's game played by gentlemen. The reverse is true for soccer.

          Apparently when you are the president of South Africa, you don't have to worry about anything else but Rugby.

            For what it's worth, a lot of people around him thought he was nuts, too.

          After watching the credits, I learned Nelson Mandela and Morgan Freeman are two different people.

            Your ears are not playing tricks on you, Freeman did just say that line in an american accent.

                The only thing that scares Nelson Mandela (just a little bit) is an intense Maori rugby player. Hostile Afrikaners he can deal with.

                    All Nelson Mandela ever did was ask everyone how their family members were doing today and tell people good luck after forcefully remembering their names.

                      Matt Damon can perfect his underdog team and defeat the world's top rugby teams with a few charming words from Nelson Mandela.

                                Pilots like rugby so much that they would risk a "9/11" accident to show their pride.

                                    Nelson Mandela should have been played by Samuel L. Jackson.

                                      Morgan Freeman had to take a break from playing American presidents to play a South African one. Danny Glover kindly filled in during his absence.

                                        The way Francois pictured President Mandala sitting in his cell and reciting the poem, and even doing so while breaking rocks, was very poignant.

                                            Boy, the Springboks straight-up killed Jonah Lomu whenever he touched the ball, didn't they? As well they should have. If not, he would have run roughshod all over them.

                                              Something the movie didn't mention (which I think would have been nice as a post-script) is that one of Francois' sons has Nelson Mandela as a godfather.
