Movie Review – The Boys in the Boat

Read Time:1 Minute, 22 Second

The Boys in the Boat

I found this to be a simple but compelling story. I have no idea of the real history of this event, but the way the story is told it is obvious what will happen. However, that doesn’t make it any more compelling.

This movie feels more like an old made-for-TV drama. Unless you really want to go to the theater, I would recommend that this movie could be enjoyed on streaming at home. In the credits it was listed as an Amazon production so I’m sure it will be on Prime fairly soon.

The entire cast turned in good acting performances. Nothing that is going to win any awards, but a good job by all. That speaks to the fine job of directing done by George Clooney. Speaking of which, I think George would have done a fine job as the team coach, not to say that Joel Edgerton didn’t do an adequate job.

If you want to see an inspiring story, then put this on your watchlist.

Grade: B

About The Peetimes: I have three good Peetimes. I think the first is the best, but both of the others are pretty good as well.

Single best investment

By and far best investment Ive made. I used to drive my husband nuts because Id be a fidgeting mess the last half hour of the movie trying not to miss important parts. Now I just turn this app on and *bam* I can actually focus on the movie the whole time. Even puts alerts to my watch so even better. Also I can guarentee all the 5 reviews arent fake as one person accused – its just that so many of us movie-goers had the same problem and this fixed it. Yes, it is paid but jeeze its expensive to keep watching movies and updating an app for every movie. And if you read more about the creator he mentions he has several people contributing – so yeah its paid but omg worth every cent. 10/10

Developers note: the RunPee app is now, and always will be, 100% free. Donations are optional.

    I,too, liked it. It was a feel good movie. After a busy holiday season it was to see a movie that didn’t make me think. Almost like a rom/com 🙂
