Yes, the 'target audience': people who either don't already like football or do but don't know much of anything about it/the draft.

What's more authentic than the NFL screwing over it's core audience?

One can only hope this was the first of a trilogy.
In part 2, he can trade his entire draft for the #5 pick. In part 3, he can trade his 27 year old running back (with only one 1000 yard season) for 5 players and 8 draft picks.

My review after getting dragged to the movie by some friends that don't care nearly as much about the draft as I do:
I thought it was way better than I expected going in (that it would be completely terrible with nothing to enjoy). Which is to say that if you don't know much about the ins and out of the draft, it should be enjoyable. Even though it was totally unrealistic in terms of trades, the main plot line was at least exciting when it seemed like it was going to be a huge let down and they managed to sort of justify the ridiculousness of the deals being made.

With that said, everything outside of the draft (i.e., everything involving Jennifer Garner and the mother) was a total waste of time. Uninteresting, underdeveloped, poorly acted and all together cheapened the movie for me.

On top of all of that, I absolutely HATE paying for what was essentially a movie-length advertiSeimiant. Every scene had some major product label prominently displayed and that is on top of a movie that is essentially a 1.5 hour long ad for the NFL draft, the Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks. It annoys the **** out of me when I'm paying for something that was already paid for by advertisers. They could have put this thing on ESPN without commercials and still probably made a healthy profit just based on how much product placement they had.

The movie is ok if you get dragged to it, but I can't recommend paying to watch it.

A movie about the draft wouldn't interest alot of people. Heck movies not doing well these days are so common. My new movie watching has dropped 90% too many remakes.

I had been sticking to big-dollar blockbusters, to see first-run. I've even gone away from that idea, recently, because I didn't see Avengers until it was in the cheap theater. There's not a whole lot of movies I need to see, right away...

Saw the movie this weekend. Passable popcorn fare. There were a couple of idiosyncrasies that may get ironed out with time. For example, in the year that the Seahawks won the superbowl, they get the number one pick in the draft. And while the movie references actual players and recent events, like Andrew Luck and the Draft of 2012 with the Washington trade for the number 2 pick, only fictitious characters are invoked when talking about current active squads. There is even a segment where they discuss the knocks against Peyton when he was a prospect, yet invent some other Quarterback to act as the current Pro-Bowl signal caller of the Broncos. They seem to only talk about actual players as part of the history of the game without acknowledging that many of these guys are still playing. It gives the film a oddly displaced feeling.

The running back he trades in part 3 could even be the guy he drafted at #7 in part 1. It would make for a crazy Hollywood story. The truth is stranger than fiction sometimes. I was waiting for somebody to get these references. Part 2 is based on the true story of Mike Ditka. Part 3 is based on the true story of the Dallas Cowboys.
