A lukewarm two-part comedy about golf and football fans
8 September 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"The Sports Pages" consists of two completely separate mini-movies in tandem. The first is a droll tale with Newhart on a courtroom witness stand explaining to a jury how he justifies killing an old friend and golfing companion (Grammer) by whacking him over the head with a club. Part two is a raucous tale about the "facts" behind the "Heidi Bowl" (look it up). Neither film has much sporting action and both focus on the fans (golf and football respectively). I don't care much for either sport and liked the first bit better. However, fans and nonfans alike should expect little more than a mildly amusing watch from "The Sports Pages". (C-)
