We really enjoyed watching Bobby. I was not sure what to expect, but based on previous Emilio Estevez film credits such as Young Guns, Maximum Overdrive, Men at Work, The Mighty Ducks, The War at Home and Rated X, I was not expecting to be disappointed. We were not disappointed at all. Bobby is based on the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, but a lot of the characters are fictitious. However Ann and I were still highly impressed with the movie. It was well made, the multiple stories worked well, which were not difficult to follow. If you can find the time, Ann and I both recommend taking a look at the movie Bobby. Of course, we also enjoyed the Bobby movie soundtrack.
