When Michael Haffner reviewed DRAFT DAY here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote: “A sign of a good sports film is if the audience enthusiastically cheers during a film like a crowd at a live sporting event. That’s exactly what happened when I went to see Ivan Reitman’s DRAFT DAY. The theater was into every second as the film counted down the minutes to the big event.” (Read the rest of Michael’s review HERE)
