Goofs

The night John Lennon was assassinated, Monday, December 8th, 1980 the Dolphins were playing the Patriots, not the Raiders as in the movie. The game's final score was Miami 16 and New England 13. Miami won with overtime field goal. Also, Don Meredith wasn't in the commentary booth; it was Fran Tarkenton. See more »

A seminal (at best) football fan speaks
19 January 2002 | by (united states) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie!! I didn't expect to like it, but the actors were so dead on in their performances, it was impossible to resist. I rarely watch football anymore, largely because there is no show with the chemistry of the original Monday Night Football lineup. A lot of ink was given to incredible acting displayed by John Turturro as Howard Cosell, but in my opinion, Brad Beyer was even better as Don Meredith. Who likeable enough as a sportscaster, always seemed two dimensional until Beyers performance.
