I must’ve have really gotten to billionaire NBA owner Mark Cuban in my review of his outrageous new film, “The War Within.” He responded to me below, and has claimed to me and others–including my own cousin, Ira–that I did not see the movie. In fact, I did.
I would never write a movie review without first seeing the movie. That would be malpractice. If Cuban wants proof, he can check with the Detroit area publicist for the film, Sean Engler, Detroit Free Press Film Critic Terry Lawson, and Detroit News Film Critic Tom Long–all of whom saw me at the screening at Birmingham’s Palladium movie theater.
Nice try, though, Mark. You know what they say about people who assume things. And Happy New Year! Go Pistons!
