Sports bio-drama directed by Andrew and Jon Erwin. American Underdog (2021) centers on the true story of Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi), who went from a stockboy at a grocery store to a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. It follows Warner and his years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his dreams of becoming an NFL player, but just when it seemed all but out of reach, with the support of his wife, Brenda (Anna Paquin) and the encouragement of his family, coaches, and teammates, Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is.
