    #643 - The Best Of Times

    Episode #643 of The AKAPAD Film Buff Podcast
    Continues the thread of American Football films with an absolute gem. The Best of Times is the definition of a style of comedy we don't see much of today, the mid-life crisis while still coming-of-age comedy. The Best of Times not only revolves around football it's the entire plot if the single moment in a single game.

For movies lovers that like quick reviews

I subscribed to Dream Warriors because I like the quick reviews on new movie releases, and the theme episodes like '30 Days of Dread' during Halloween.
