Anyone else see it?
I was going to hold off on reading or posting in any threads until I saw it and I saw it last night and like you I thought it wasnt as good as the HBO documentary but it was very well done.

It was very sad that Herb didnt get to see it. I also thought they did a very good job of getting the point across maybe even better than they did in the documentary the dislike between the kids from the East (Primarily BU) and the Midwest (Primarily Minnisota U).
