I managed to snag sneak passes to this movie & was able to watch it on Wednesday night.
This will be a spoiler free review as I thought the anticipation of “who was going to be drafted” was fun and I think you should have the same experience. So if you are here to find out who is drafted, well you won’t find it here. I am not telling 🙂
When I first received the passes, I didn’t want to go, but as it was an opportunity to leave this cubicle I went, plus it had Tom Welling, and as Tom has always been my number 1… how could I not see it? Sigh… how I miss Smallville.
Anyway, not the point. Simply put the movie was fantastic. It is no Oscar worthy film, but it is entertaining. The movie runs about a hour and 40 minutes, and it did not drag. Almost everyone after the movie was chatting about how fast the movie moved and just how entertaining.
So what’s the story? Well the gist of the plot is simple:
Sonny Weaver Jr the GM of the Cleveland Browns snags the #1 draft pick and has to determine if he is going to go with the “anticipated” number one draft pick which is what the owner wants, or someone else.
Throw in a crazy mother, the very recent death of his father, a girlfriend with news, and a whole crazy cast of characters and you have one hilarious fast paced movie. I found myself laughing, cringing, and cheering for certain characters.
I enjoyed the movie because I found it entertaining, I loved how they kept name dropping the Dallas Cowboys in a somewhat positive light. There is an entire scene, where the coach of the Browns (who was the recent Cowboys coach) compared Dallas to Cleveland. Let’s just say the Dallas audience was rolling. What he says is so true and everyone in the audience knew it.
and oh did I mention Tom Welling is in the movie? So ladies if football is not your thing, I am sure Tom Welling is. Go.
Football lovers will love it. It will get you that small football hit, that football fans so desperately need to get through the post season as this comes out approx 1 month before the actual 2014 draft.
So what is my rating you ask? I give the movie 4 stars.
Be warned though: The movie will totally get you pumped for the upcoming draft, and season!
Go Cowboys 😉
