Too good for the viewer
19 October 2002 | by (Munich, Europe) – See all my reviews

It is tricky to write a review of the "Sports Pages" as it consists of two almost independent stories, "How Doc Waddens finally broke 100" and "The Heidi Bowl".

While the Heidi Bowl describes an event that actually happened and that is still in the mind of pretty much every US football fan, the Story of Doc Waddens is entirely fictionuous.

Well, I happened to see the "Sports Pages" twice during my two-week holiday in Varadero. However, the most disappointing issue is that obviously US viewers don't seem to understand it at all.

Part one - Doc Waddens - is full of between-the-lines humor and Bob Newhart plays his role as good as a Brit would do. Ever imagined you have just been pleaded 'not guilty' after killing a Golf enthusiast friend, and now you want to buy the victim's set of clubs from the widow? Weird ideas of that kind by the truckload and a brilliant performance by the staff.

The "Heidi Bowl" sports the well-known football event but wrapped in half a dozen of small or not-so-small stories that all lead to the big final. A well-filmed view on the typical American everyday-craze that make them look so stupid everywhere else in the world. Yet they, themselves, just don't get it.

Go and watch it, it's great!
