Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Thanks to Costner's sly, dry-aged charisma, it marches down the field and scores.
Fresh: You may think you're not interested in a sturdy little dramatic comedy about the intricacies of the NFL draft process. But with Draft Day, you're in the hands of a master.
Rotten: Ivan Reitman's dull-witted movie about the flurries of player trading on N.F.L. draft day might be a commercial for professional football.
Rotten: The NFL gets a "special thanks" in the end credits. Maybe it should have been the other way around.
I have read and seen Moneyball, and I thought this movie was fun and entertaining. It might of been exaggerated in several ways, but it also is probably so true in how a team must go beyond what the fans and others think to make a bold move to really improve their team.
Great Movie folks! As much as I like hard hitting when it comes to football movies "Don't expect it, with this one!" You'll be disappointed.
Saw the movie 3 different times while it was in theaters, it was fantastic. Costner did a great job, protraying a character with many different sides, and with many different things happening in the background
