Monday Night Mayhem (2002)
I remember full well the early days of Monday Night Football, and this film truly captured the spirit of those time. There were two errors I found annoying.
1. The opening music for the first game is not the original theme "The Score", instead it's the modern theme.
2. When Keith Jackson asks for his messages from a hotel clerk, the guy asks him about the Bucs. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers did not exist until 1976, long after the first year of Monday Night Football.
I thought John Toturro captured the essence of Howard Cossell quite well. Overall, a pleasant way to kill a couple of hours. I watched it instead of the American Idol final.
A Night in Casablanca (1946)
Loved This Film
I remember the first time as a kid when I watched this film on TV. It was the very first Marx Brothers movie I'd ever seen. With no history to fall back on, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It stands up very well on its on, even for those who aren't Marxists like me. Later, I learned to appreciate the earlier films, and see why many are disappointed in this one. If you've never seen a Marx Brothers film see this one first. You'll enjoy it, and appreciate the others even more. Groucho's one liners are great, Chico is just himself, and there's a joke between Harpo and a cop involving loiterng that's just laugh out loud funny. Unlike others, I even liked the climax.
