Critic Reviews for North Dallas Forty
Profanely funny, wised-up and heroically antiheroic, North Dallas Forty is unlikely to please anyone with a vested interest in glorifying the National Football League.
Retains enough of the original novel's authenticity to deliver strong, if brutish, entertainment.
The football scenes are brutally real; the locker room scenes are totally authentic.
The production is a most realistic, hard-hitting and perceptive look at the seamy side of pro football.
Something of a mess, both in terms of the wayward plot which rambles all over the place, and in terms of the rather muddled juggling of audience sympathies.
