"3"

So is anyone watching "3" on ESPN(HD) tonight about Dale Earnhardt's life?

Was good but like one reviewer said it should have had more detail. Like the story behind the penny on the dash.

I'm still watching it, but it's kind of hard to show a man's 49 year life in about 1.5 hours. I do wish it was a little longer...

Yeah, it deserved a little more detail.

I thought they handled the 2001 Daytona respectfully, but still brought back memories. Barry Pepper was pretty good, and whoever the makeup guys were, they deserve an emmy or two.

I remember when the crash happened, because we were all watching the race at the ambulance hall, and 5 minutes after he spun, we were dispatched for an auto accident. This movie brought back lots of memories, could have been a little more in depth, but it was overall pretty good.

I enjoyed it but I agree with everyone else that it felt very rushed. I think that it would have worked a lot better as a longer movie or a miniseries.

Barry Pepper was fantastic, and I think that the actor who played Junior did a good job too.
