As an 80s kid, this was a great throwback to my teenage years. That might have been the most enjoyable part of the movie for me. Not that I didn’t enjoy all of it, but there’s not a whole lot to get worked up about.

I found it to be enjoyable, but I didn’t love it. I suppose it’s because the stakes weren’t that high. We know how the story turns out, so it’s hard to really feel the drama. Sonny is shown to have a gambler’s mentality and he’s been wrong many times. If he had failed it would have been a personal tragedy, but he’s not going to be destitute. This isn’t life and death.

Movie Watching Must Have!!

I go feral for this app. I love it so much and I wish everyone knew about it and used it. It is incredibly useful and I would be devastated if this app ever disappeared. Things I love: 1) the pee times! It’s so handy to know the best time to go and then read the synopsis of what’s happening while I’m gone. I never have to worry about missing the good bits! 2) knowing if there is a post-credits scene or not. This might be my fav feature because I would have missed out on some pretty critical scenes if it weren’t for RunPee. 3) the movie review and viewer rankings. This info has made me watch some movies that I normally wouldn’t and it’s nice seeing things outside of my usual scope. 4) that it’s a small family run business. I love shopping small and it really does feel like I’m part of the RunPee family! If you reach out to them, Dan will personally respond to you and he is so warm and helpful. GET THIS APP AND THEN SUBSCRIBE! It is absolutely worth it and you’ll be using it again and again!

The acting was what you would expect: rock solid. I’m thinking back through the scenes, and I can’t recall a single scene that doesn’t involve Sonny (Matt Damon). If there’s a scene without Sonny it didn’t last long.

All that said, I would certainly recommend this movie to anyone who’s a sports fan that grew up in the 80s.

Also, I wasn’t aware of the historical role that Deloris Jordan played. I don’t know whose idea it was, her’s or Michaels, to insist on a percentage of the sales, but that was the revolutionary part of the story, as the movie points out in the end.

Grade: B

About The Peetimes: This was an easy movie to do Peetimes for because there isn’t much going on except for the main storyline. I don’t have a recommended Peetime because there’s not much difference between them.

There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Air.

  1. To be fair, I have not seen AIR yet. I’m from the Chicagoland, love Chicago sports, and know every bit of the MJ & Nike story. I know there are no surprises in store for me when I do see AIR.

    OK, with that out of the way, I took my 87-yr. old dad to see Sweetwater this afternoon. What a pleasant surprise! I have seen zero trailers and even fewer ads for Sweetwater, and that is a shame. “Sweets” is the Jackie Robinson of the NBA and for sports history fans (like me), it is worth the time to see it.

    PS. There are extras during the credits of Sweetwater. 🙂

    1. Crap, I’d like to see Sweetwater. It’s not even showing at our “artsy” theater here in town. 🙁

      I’ll put it on my “to stream” list. Thanks!

  2. Finally!
    Now that I’ve seen Air, I can say with confidence: I loved it! I love sports and even more, sports history. There were a few fun OMG, REALLY? moments. I love MJ’s Bulls and sharing that time with my 5-year old son. I wish there was more Michael, even if it was just the back of his head. I loved the good laughs, mostly at the expense of Ben Affleck’s jogging suit and Matt Damon’s “not friend.” Music plays a huge part for me in movies, and this one excelled.
    There were parts toward that were just “Eh” for me, so instead of an A…

    It’s a B++ for me. 🙂
    Highly recommend!

    1. Awesome. I expected that you would enjoy this. It must be awesome to share this with your 5-year-old. Congratulations. 🙂

  3. To be clear…
    I shared those championship years with my then 5-year-old son. I wanted to go back and edit it as soon as I posted! Haha
    That grown man is now very excited to see this. He and I don’t agree on everything, but the love for sports+music+history in movies is definitely a shared passion.

    1. Ah, understood. That’s really awesome. 🙂
