In 2000, Disney released "Remember the Titans," a true story about a newly racially-integrated Virginia high school football team that in 1971 went 13-0, and in the process dissolved racial tensions in the community. Great story, but too bad it's not true.

Denzel Washington plays the team's coach Herman Boone, who is brought in to be the new coach, replacing the popular and successful white coach.

This movie also features some of the first roles of Ryan Gosling and Hayden Panettiere.

Join us as we break down how exactly inaccurate this insanely cheesy "true story" actually is.
