    I thought it was pretty good. Helen Mirren and Al Pacino were both great! I only knew a bit of the "real" story and, obviously, I'm not saying this movie is 100% accurate but it provided some insights that I didn't expect. It was enjoyable and I didn't find it cheesy like I expected to.

    I completely forgot it was on. I'm going to look for it on-demand. Thanks for the reminder.

    Worth a watch if you're interested in him or the story, but pretty mediocre for HBO/Pacino.

    Not that anyone cares but I remember Ronnie Spector being a really great guest on Howard a long time ago, and I loved Joan Rivers' story about Phil Spector pulling a gun on people at various parties. Thank you.

    Pretty good flick, it seemed very slanted towards Spector being innocent. :coffee:

    That was the last time I enjoyed Joan Rivers on Howard.
