we know exactly what happened - why do we need a movie to repeat it all? And I hope the Paterno family doesn't get a single penny from this movie, but I'm sure they are.

Al Pacino with Joe Pesci's voice would nail it

So this movie is about Joe Paterno knowing that his fellow coach is raping little boys at the football facilities? Who would watch this?

What a sad fall from Grace. Paterno is the for poster child for "sometimes doing nothing has consequences too".

The only redeeming thing about the whole pedophilia incident is it probably was what killed him when it all surfaced. Now if someone would break a mop handle off in Jerry the circle will be squared. Who the F thought doing a movie would be a good idea? I guess it's all in the name of tolerance now, but I can't tolerate that junk.

Does it show the part where he burns in Hell?

Hopefully he will do the "game of inches" speech at some point in the movie.

Pacino is the GOAT -- I wish this was a feature film and not just an HBO movie

Wow either Pacino has aged like hell or he's the best actor ever.

Have you not seen any movie since 1960?

I mean, he isn't as young as he was in The Godfather, but.. And I know this is a crazy concept, but they have ways to make people look older... or younger. or whatever.. when they are acting in a movie.

I just hope it's more about his life and football and only touches briefly on the Sandusky thing. Like we get it, Sandusky sucks. Joe made a couple mistakes and ended up in too deep.

Couple of mistakes huh? Wonder if it would just be a "couple mistakes" if it was your boy and the man who knew everything going on did nothing.

You will be disappointed, I think the whole point of the movie is the Sandusky shite. Oh yeah, that little bitty mistake Joe made. He knew, a coach, who he employed to coach part of his team, was a phediphile and failed to act on it. Oppps. What a small mistake.

If this movie is not a 100% slam fest on his arse it will be a disgrace. The movie should focus on nothing but paternos pos character.

Damn. He looks bad.

God help PSU fans if this movie ends up on par with the Bear Bryant movie which starred of all people Gary Busey as Coach Bryant.

Holy Christ. I just watched 8 minutes of that terrible movie.

I wanna see Alec Baldwin playing Pacino playing Paterno. And give me Danny Akyroyd as Sandusky.
Reply4 months
Should just start with Sandusky walking a child to the showers and Joe turning his back on him to gaze on his statue from his window ... cause to me , everything that happened before that is irrelevant .....

The skin is too tight.

If it's wrong to have a statue of Joe, why isn't it wrong to make a movie?

Penn State's not making the movie.

I think Pacino can show the complexities of the man probably better than most actors. I've always thought that there was more to the whole Paterno/Sandusky thing then what was let out.
Reply4 months
Yep, almost like Paterno was "put to sleep" to shut him up, instead of natural causes. I mean there was kids who came from broken homes getting molested in Penn State summer camps during the day, right in ur face!! A lot more to all of that than what is put out there by our law enforcement & media. *cover up*

Before all of this happened, I use to say if Paterno didn't die while still coaching, he would die soon after retirement, but I didn't expect it to be that soon. Things seemed to fall in line at the right times. A Penn St football coordinator molested kids and would bring them to Penn St's facility and do stuff to them in the show. Paterno is forced to retire. Evidence shows Paterno knew Sandusky was trying to play hide the pickle with teenage boys. Paterno has cancer. Oh he is dead..
