This is borderline 5-stars, depending on if you like the NFL. There are plenty of reviews that break down the plot, and praise the actors' performances. I'll add a small personal addition to those reviews. The "it" moment for me in the film centered on the linebacker Mack. In the beginning he comes across as a big-mouth "ME" player with tons of talent. At a key moment in the film, as the coaches and Sonny are trying to find any flaws with the consensus #1 pick QB, they watch highlights of a college game in which Mack sacked the QB 4 times, yet the QB was the hero at the end with a bullet TD. Mack was missing from that play because he had been ejected for giving a woman the ball after a strip-sack TD. The coaches all say he was showboating and hitting on a girl, but then Sonny explains to them (and us) what kind of man Mack is...the woman was his sister along with her two sons, and she was to die (assume some form of cancer) six months later. That small scene added sudden depth to Mack, especially the first scene we see him in in which his two nephews are in his car. It also made the moment when Mack's name is called in the draft a moment in which I wanted to jump up and cheer (Lufthansa would not have been pleased though). Then follow-on emotional momentum builds with additional high-stress trades and another emotionally charged pick occurs.

Bottom line: well worth your time to watch, and if you like NFL football or Costner, well worth buying.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It's about people, not the sport. Nobody dies. Nobody is tortured. Nobody goes to jail. There are no sex scenes... It is an authentic story about a day - about a guy who has to make tough decisions - and about the players who have what it takes with regards to integrity instead of just playability.

The way the story is woven together - taking the lives of various coaches and players and managers together - on draft day - is fantastic.

My wife and I watched this film on opening weekend. My wife knows nothing about football and she liked the film. I am a former Cleveland resident who followed the Browns in High School until moving back to the west coast. I follow the NFL draft every year with all of it's human drama. Originally the script was about the Buffalo Bills, for tax reasons the film was shifted to Cleveland. Any person who is a football fan die hard will like this film. Each draft brings hope to a losing ball club, optimism runs high for the fans.

On the center stage is the G.M. played by Kevin Costner. A man trying to show grace under pressure, turning around a losing franchise. Screaming in one ear is the owner, screaming in his other ear is the head coach played by Dennis Leary. Sonny Weaver must balance their demands on draft day. Or does he do what he feels is the right move for the club? Calming the storm is Jennifer Garner, the cap room specialist, crunching the contracts to make room for new players. She is the go between to insulate Costner from the head coach's demands on D- Day. The clock is ticking down till Cleveland picks.

At the eye of the storm is the new intern who sees it all, working the phones, watching the tension come and go with each hour till the Browns are on the clock. Running errands near the war room, coaches yelling, the G.M. yelling back, taking messages; the intern is the barometer for the whirl wind of emotions at crunch time. The owner wants a player who will bring in the fans, G.M. Weaver wants the right player who will impact the club on defense or offense. The coach only thinks offense since that's what he knows. The fans want a quarterback to take them to a Super Bowl. Director Ivan Reitman does a good job with the back stories behind the draft, building to their pick in New York City.

This was an easy going addition to the patented Kevin Does Sports With Angst genre. Since I knew nothing about football drafts this was a nifty way to explain it to me; an aging male star accompanied with beautiful much younger woman then mix with Denis Leary playing the cranky coach part best perfected by the late, great Jack Warden. Salt to taste.

Sports films typically have a love/hate relationship with viewers – most never finding that honest middle ground that satisfies everyone’s wants and desires. On one hand, you have the preposterous comedies that cap seriousness, sacrificing dramatic acting in exchange for a series of cheap laughs and feel-good moments, like Rookie of the Year, The Waterboy, and Caddyshack. Then, there’s the beloved and devote dramas that live on in film infamy, which includes but is not limited to Rocky, The Natural, and Raging Bull. Finally, you have Kevin Costner’s greatest hits, like Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, and For the Love of the Game. And, even though Kevin Costner has left the baseball diamond and thrown his last fastball, he clearly has found a memorable position as the GM of an NFL franchise in Draft Day.

Directed by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Kindergarden Cop), Draft Day stars Kevin Costner as Sonny Weaver Jr., the General Manager of the NFL’s Cleveland Browns franchise. After multiple years of high hopes and shattered dreams, the Cleveland Browns find themselves at an important crossroads in regards to the team’s future – and Sonny finds himself on the hot seat (the possibility of being fired). Still, it’s draft day and he knows the Browns need to produce a big splash to not only energize the fans, but also build a sturdy foundation of winning.

Sonny’s day begins with news from his girlfriend and Browns front office salary cap manager, Ali (Jennifer Garner), that she’s pregnant. However, Sonny obviously has other issues on his mind – like whom to select with the team’s first round pick. His choices include a hot-tempered defenseman, Vontane Mack (Chadwick Boseman) and running back, Ray Jennings (Arian Foster).
