I forget how good this movie is until I start missing football and I watch it again and again. I never tire of seeing Kevin Costner as Sonny Weaver Jr., the stressed out General Manager of the floundering Cleveland Browns with a chance to turn things around on NFL Draft Day. You’ll recall that this year’s draft was a virtual one. Imagine a time long ago when there was no pandemic, no social distancing unless you just wanted to and normal life allowed us to enjoy simple things like…FOOTBALL!
Costner is joined by an all star cast; Jennifer Garner, Frank Langella, Chadwick Boseman (before he entered The Marvel Universe as “Black Panther”), Dennis Leary, Ellen Burstyn, Roseanne Arquette, plus an array of real players, sportscasters and of course Roger Goodell on stage for Draft Day! Ivan Reitman directed a film that entertains you from the first frame to the final pick!
