The movie "Draft Day", starring Kevin Cosner, is getting bad reviews. The $25mil. budgeted movie pulled in a weak $9.8mil., in 2,781 theatres, nationwide.
I haven't seen the movie myself...nor did I plan to. I can't understand how any knowledgable football fan could get into a movie dramatizing a fake draft, with the real NFL draft just a few weeks away.
While the movie "Moneyball" was based on the true story of the remarkable 2002 Oakland A's...who, despite being a team made up of a bunch of castoffs and having the lowest payroll in baseball, came within a game of going to the ALCS, after winning 103 games....this fantasy about the lowly Cleveland Browns and some fictional hot shot GM doesn't seem to have any "grabbing" power.
Better if they did a movie about BB's trials and tribulations, while head coach in Cleveland. There's lot's of drama in that story. Perhaps Cosner could have scored playing BB!
Enough of a rip-off on the draft, Jolly Roger! Putting it off to May 8th was as bad an idea as this goofy movie. Aren't y'all as tired as I am of the draft hype? The draft is spaced too far after free agency. It's getting to the point where I'm losing interest...as we're still about 4 weeks away from our annual football oasis at the Radio City Music Hall.
