In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison for a crime they didn’t commit.
These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the NBC primetime schedule, where they survive as soldiers of fortune
in a world with no apparent system of law enforcement. If you want to empty multiple M16 magazines into a crowd of bad
guys or cause dozens of rollover crashes without injuring anyone, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... The A-Team.

The Cinema Slob #4

In 2010, a great action movie adaptation of a hit 1980s action TV show was panned by critics for a crime it didn't commit. It promptly went to DVD, where it remained mostly forgotten. Today, still disliked by a majority of major film "critics", it survives as a movie loved by true fans of action-adventure and comedy. If you never saw it, if you had only heard bad things, and if you didn't know any better than to blindly trust the critics, maybe you should watch: The Cinema Slob's review of The A-Team!
The A-Team “The Heart of Rock N' Roll”
Mr. Mendo's Hack Attack #9

“Really, it’s just a flimsy excuse to build an episode around lengthy performances of the greatest hits of Rick James, Isaac Hayes, James Taylor, and Huey Lewis and the News. Take out all the songs, and ‘Heart of Rock and Roll’ is a 12 minute episode, which is exactly what Mendo has made for you!”

“Last summer saw the release of the big budget adaptation of the ‘80s cheese ball television classic The A-Team. Given the rather underwhelming reception it received at the box office, I think we can safely say there won’t be a sequel, so this is as good a time as any to examine what the filmmakers got right and what they got wrong.”

“You know, if all of Hannibal’s plans are this ridiculously convoluted, no wonder he loves it when they come together!”
The A-Team “Wheel of Fortune”

“I guess most of the show’s budget went into the wheel, Pat Sajak’s hairstylist, and energy pills for Vanna so she wouldn’t collapse from going back and forth across the stage, turning letters and clapping all damn day.”

“Even that redneck farmer guy Batman fought planned things out better than this.”
