The exquisite "March of the Penguins" (Warner, $29) was a surprise box office hit this summer, grossing $77.3 million. French filmmaker Luc Jacquet and his crew spent a year under extreme weather conditions in Antarctica to chronicle the incredible journey of the emperor penguins.

It's reached the point that every time you think Joe Montana can do no more, he does it. Take last week. He threw for 476 yards and six touchdowns against Atlanta and then yawned about it. "There were times I was throwing well, but there were other times I didn't hit people I should have," he says, noting that he missed two receivers open for touchdowns and threw two interceptions. Well, nobody's perfect. It's just that Montana seems to be.

The raucous and bold documentary "Murderball" looks at the sport of quad rugby, played on a basketball court on which players in wheelchairs maneuver, sometimes violently, to move a ball upcourt and across the goal line. Though the players are quadriplegics, meaning they have some form of restricted mobility in all four limbs, the sport is fiercely and passionately played, and at the international level, the stakes are high with gold medals, national and individual pride on the line.

Mark Zupan, Joe Soares and his son sit at a table for four -- with only two chairs -- Zupan and Soares having arrived by wheelchair, a pair of quadriplegics on opposite sides of the table, on opposite sides of seemingly everything. They've come to discuss "Murderball," a documentary, opening Friday, in which they both star.

Once, Yankee Stadium was their stage. Their names reflect treasured memories that are passed from old baseball fans to new or from parent to child.
