To sum it up this movie was a disappointment. I was expecting an all time stinker going in and well it wasn't that bad. I don't know if it was the fact that Pete Rose looked like Mo from the three stooges or that the entire movie really didn't tell me anything new about the Rose saga. There were a few good scenes but at the end of the day the director really didn't tell a side of the story like most bio pics. About the only thing the movie did good was showing that Rose was a first class sleaze ball. I'm sure ESPN will show this a few million times over the next few weeks on ESPN Classics but take a pass.

The only redeeming thing about this movie was director Peter Bogdanovichs tribute to mediocre 80's music. Did you notice that in virtually every new scene there was a song playing in the background? Tom Sizemore did play a decent unrepentant gambler though.

Now we can be free of DisnEspn's relentless HARD SELL for this trash. Espeically annoying this go-around was Mike & Mike in the Morning's producers wearing Mitchell & Ness Rose jerseys and playing the song "The Hustle" in the background all last week. Sheesh.

Have they started beating their Dale Earnhardt pic to death yet? I half expected Bill Simmons joking around in his column last week about the movie to be interrupted by an ad for Hu$tle.
