Warner Bros.' Any Given Sunday is Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone's all-encompassing look at post-modern society through the dynamic prism of professional sports. The film takes a simultaneously epic and intimate look at the action-packed world of pro football, from the modern-day gladiators of the gridiron, their coaches and often beleaguered families, to the moneyed team owners who attempt to control the game, to the ever-hungry sports media and the hanger-ons desperate for a taste of the glamour.

So Oliver Stone has focused his subtle-as-Lawrence-Taylor-on-a-blindside-rush directorial style on the bone-crunching, hard-living, fast-paced world of professional football. That there would be a heavy-hitting soundtrack to accompany the film was about as inevitable as hearing "Rock & Roll Part 2" in a stadium or arena. For ANY GIVEN SUNDAY, the powers that be have put together a heady if predictable lineup of hip-hop and harder-edged rockers for a solid soundtrack to the Christmas, 1999 flick.
To the soundtrack producers' credit, instead of just picking out the most hard-nosed rappers in order to compliment the sport presented, they took talent into account and selected an outstanding array of artists. From the formidable Atlanta pairing of Outkast and Goodie Mob on "Sole Sunday" to the reliably poppy-yet-powerful turn of one of the movie's stars--LL Cool J on "Shut 'Em Down" (no, not the PE tune)--there really is no weak track; even Jamie Foxx makes good (aided by Guru and Common) on the title track. The rock side is best represented by the soundtrack's lead single, Hole's driving "Be a Man," a song good enough to have stood out on the group's highly acclaimed CELEBRITY SKIN.
