The Rat Pack

1998 Rated R 2hr

Focusing on the time frame surrounding the 1960 presidential election, this entertaining, made-for-cable biopic dramatizes the inner workings of the famed Rat Pack led by crooner Frank Sinatra (Ray Liotta). The film looks at the group's camaraderie, their often tumultuous private lives and their connections to the mob and to the Kennedys. Joe Mantegna turns in a fine performance in the role of Dean Martin, as does Don Cheadle as Sammy Davis Jr.

Other features

Since this was shot for TV (Sorry - "It's not TV, it's HBO."), it's obviously in fullscreen - but as it began that way, it's still relatively attractive. There's a nicely animated menu, and the "Special Feature" is a brief promotional featurette. There are filmographies, and a more-than adequate Dolby sound mix.
