I like football, and judging by the mammoth TV ratings, so does most of America. I’m not sure what it says about us as a society that we celebrate what’s arguably the most violent major sport*, but to be fair, plenty of fans also get caught up in the details. Like most sports, second-guessing is part of the game, and the guessing game is in full force in the NFL Draft. It’s where the indentured servitude of the NCAA gives way to players actually getting paid, but no one knows if a player is going to be a bang or bust. Unfortunately, Ivan Reitman‘s Draft Day may have the fiery setting, but the movie has trouble finding the spark. It’s fun to go inside the offices of NFL teams, but the energy is lost in a listless protagonist and tiresome subplots. Although it does manage to score at the end, the film is a tedious drive down the field.
