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.
This movie was never given the chance it deserved!
The movie, moment one to the end, is amazing. I for one am a big Kevin Costner fan and his casting was spot on with this team of actors. Absolutely worth watching! And one last word, so you are not s football fan, no problem … the storyline carries the movie and it works!
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.
Interesting insight into college draft day
I like football but I've never paid much attention to what goes on after the game is over. This was really interesting and great acting.
