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 »

John Turturro's Finest Two Hours
20 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

John Turturro's portrayal of Howard Cosell in this film is so absolutely perfect that it has Emmy written all over it. While this movie (based on a book of the same name) is more than just a Howard biopic, Turturro really shines as America's most beloved and most hated sports broadcaster. He has the many mannerisms of Cosell down pat, down to the nasal voice that was both inimitable and grating. His narration of MNF's halftime highlights is particularly inspired.

Nicholas Turturro, John's brother, also stands out as Chet Forte, the gambling, womanizing MNF director, as does John Heard as Roone Arledge, the brains behind MNF and ABC Sports for so many years. The only downer is Brad Beyer's performance as Dandy Don Meredith. Nothing against Brad, but he was the wrong pick for this role. His baby face and forced Texas accent make me wish they had cast someone with a genuine Lone Star State drawl (Beyer is from Wisconsin).
