"Draft Day" Due out April 11th stars Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner... The story is that browns GM Sonny Weaver(Costner) Has traded for the number one pick in the draft, He Must quickly decide what he's willing to sacrifice in the pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and proffessional life become blurred on a life changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL.
Doesnt it make a movie kind of anti-climactic when you know that in the end they will just screw it up and draft another no.1 overall bust like tim couch? I just dont understand what would draw an audiance to a movie that revolves around such a historically bad franchise like the browns.
I'm not sure the choice of the Browns will make a difference. It sounds like a pretty shiitty movie anyway.
I guess it's a matter of opinion. I really enjoyed Moneyball and the behind-the-scenes look at running a baseball team. I'm looking forward to Hollywood's take on constructing a football team. I'm HOPEFUL that with so many actual players, it will be enjoyable and fairly true to life. I also liked the football parts of Jerry McGuire. Too much drama with the gf and kid, but that's how to get the skirts into the theatre.
MOneyball was really overrated. I enjoyed Trouble With the Curve more, likely because I got to look at the lovely Amy Adams for 2 hours.
Or, maybe it's because BIlly Beane is incredibly overrated acting like he invented the concept?
Billy Beane hasn't won anything in over 15 years as GM with the As. Good GM, doesn't get much support from the owners there, but as far as setting a budget and making it work, I'd say the Red Sox have done a very good job developing players internally, drafting, etc, as much as Beane.
