B.A. Baracus bears the tattoos "Pity" and "Fool" on his knuckles, as a tribute to Mr. T's catchphrase from Rocky III (1982): "I pity the fool!". Contrary to popular myth, B.A. Baracus never uttered that exact phrase on "The A-Team". See more »

My favourite film of the year, remember the series when I was kid, and thought this was a a great take on the series.
The guy from District 9,Sharlto Copley played Murdoch, was funny as hell, and Face played by Bradley Cooper was perfectly cast. Quinton Jackson was a good choice as BA, had never heard of him till this film) , and thought Liam Neeson was fantastic as Hannibal. I really hope that they will make future A Team films with this same cast, because I thought this film was spot on for A team film.
Funny, full of action, and slick, Definitely will add this to my DVD collection as soon as it comes out
