Critic Reviews for Ali & Cavett: The Tale of the Tapes

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

While The Tale of the Tapes doesn't teach us much, it underlines Ali's gift for entertaining.

Director Robert S. Bader relies too heavily on interviews with biographers and casual observers (Juan Williams, Al Sharpton) to carry the narrative, but there's interesting show footage.
