Kind of fun. Strange that there has never been a football that I really liked. Several about baseball are my favorites. Oh well, just an observation.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Gentle, pleasing remake of HERE COMES MR. JORDAN with Beatty as good-natured football player who is taken to heaven ahead of schedule, and has to return to ``life'' in another man's body. Amiable but never moving, with Christie miscast as the woman who inspires Beatty. Scripted by Beatty and Elaine May.
