    best sports movie of the decade? This decade is only 11 months old, so, not much of an achievement.

    I wonder, does Marky Mark go through this film with is usual pissed-off personality? That’s not acting, that’s real.

    So this is what it takes to get Christian Bale looking happy and engaged, a cheesy cover of Sports Illustrated!?! Here I thought he was “too cool for school.”. Must be the lure of Osczr making him so agreeable.
