"I really thought that with the demise of the video cassette , DVD"S would offer a better quality transfer. It seems that companies are making copies of DVD"S from videos. The quality of this product is horrendous. Faded colors, blurry at times and scaratches. It is not even worth the 10 bucks I shelled out to Amazon for it. The film is very 70's with a sexy performance by Ann Margret. Buy it only for her performance and a great song she sings "Today". Better yet rent it first! This is worse than the average bootleg copy!"

"I am very dissatisfied with this DVD. The quality is good, but this is not the complete version. There are several parts in the original that are not in the version I purchased. This is clearly not the entire movie. I am considering returning it.
Joe Willie Where Have You Gone?

"If you have memories of Broadway Joe in his prime, then this is a pleasant blast from the past. Sports Illustrated did a recent cover story about Joe Namath--his legacy, his ways, his fall from grace...it was a pleasant interlude from the often forced cover stories that have taken over the newsstands. And, what it reveals is that the days of larger than life sports heroes who can actually play the game and who you want to root for (this is a crucial distinguishing factor) are long gone since Joe Willie took off his Jets uniform and headed for the disastrous year at the helm of the Los Angeles Rams.
The time this film was made, there was no star brighter than Namath's...and if you enjoy seeing a sport star (a la Jim Brown and definitely NOT O.J. Simpson) stretch their charisma and machismo in front of a camera, then check this baby out. It's a hoot. Based on anecdotal evidence, it seems that Joe had a good time making the movie and hanging out with a babe-a-licious actress (really the Jessica Alba of her time and more since she could sing and act) Ann Margaret. She showed up at a banquet honoring Joe back in the day.
There's an NFL presents book out right now with a DVD included--a documentary on Namath. This guy truly was something special. He had eggshells for knees, a mind as sharp as a razor and an arm like a rocket. Seeing him lope around the field and calling downs exactly one play after he was absolutely leveled by an oncoming freight train made my heart race then and now. So much so I put a picture of him swarthed in green on my son's wall.
You only wish there were stars as bright and as big as he was today...so much so that movie producers wanted to put an athlete in front of the camera--and I'm not talking about Rick Fox trying his hand at character acting. Joe was cool. He was what every guy wanted to be. Good enough at the job to flip a bird at anyone who got in his face.
So, give it a try...check it out!
TERRIBLE FILM. TERRIBLE TRANSFER. Save your money!

"I'm a fan of cheesy, low budget movies, but this TRULY is an unwatchable film. The transfer to DVD is one of the worst I have ever seen. Color is bleached out beyond belief, soundtrack is garbled, overall DVD quality is one of the worst I've ever seen. Save your money, or you'll regret this purchase, just like I have. It's in my Goodwill pile."
