Trivia

The release date of Monday, January 14th, 2002 was on the 29th anniversary of the Miami Dolphins defeating the Washington Redskins, 14 to 7, in Super Bowl VII, (VII is 7 in Roman Numerals) and were undefeated in the 1972-73 season, winning all 17 games, with 17 wins and 0 losses record, winning all 14 regular season games and all 3 post-season games. Super Bowl VII's (7 in Roman Numerals) 14 to 7 score is the lowest scoring Super Bowl game. There was just 21 points scored, combined. 14 + 7 = 21. Additional Fact of 7th Super Bowl, The difference was 7 points in Super Bowl 7. 14 minus 7 = 7. See more »

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 »

bought back memories of those Monday night games
19 December 2002 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

This has got to be John Turturro's best role so far. He was actually believable as Cosell. It shows how Cosell made Monday Night football as much as everyone hated him. I remember some of those games and comments. He was always a guy full of surprise comments and an articulate verbal arsenal. They made Frank Gifford look really stupid in this movie. I also think they made a big mistake when they did not resign Cosell. They left out the famous speech between Cosell and Meredith. This is a must see for any Monday Night football fan. 8/10
