Jake Walker has it all: fame, money, and a career as a top pro football star. Jake has achieved all this through his natural talent – and his constant willingness to do whatever is best for himself, without a thought for his teammates. But when Jake’s father (and high school coach) suffers a heart attack, Jake returns home. Seeing the life his brother Dean, whom Jake’s ambition caused to be injured in high school, has built for himself, Jake is forced to confront the consequences of his lifetime of self-centered decisions…and consider changing his life.   

Game Time’s heavy emphasis on football is sure to make it attractive to male viewers, while its character-centered drama will interest women; and all viewers, especially youngsters, will benefit from its emphasis on the importance of family, integrity, selflessness, making good decisions, and doing what is right – not only for oneself, but for others as well.

 Once again, producers and sponsors Wal-Mart and Procter & Gamble are to be congratulated for their willingness to produce family programming, when the major television networks refuse to do so. Because of its emphasis on family-friendly values, the Parents Television Council is proud to award Game Time: Tackling the Past  with the PTC Seal of ApprovalTM. The PTC recommends this DVD for all viewers over age five.
