Michael Mann, and pretty much everybody else involved in Ali, should be lined up and shot. Ironically, the one time I didn't hate Jamie Foxx in a movie was when he played Bundini Brown in that film. It was plum supporting role and he didn't blow it. Too bad that bit character was the best part of a historically inaccurate and laboriously paced movie.
