    THANK YOU for allowing all of us to view this movie. Greg Kinnear looked so much like JFK. I didn’t realize that Bobby and Ethel had such a great marriage, that was nice to know.
    All of the characters were wonderful and if you could let Caroline know just how much WE ALL enjoyed this movie!! It was truly a waste for such a wonderful man to have to leave this world the way he did. AND Bobby truly loved his brother. Would be nice if a lot of families had the closeness the Kennedy family had.
    REELZ did a great job!! THANKS.

    Where’s the Grammar Police on this script??? Twice last night on pronoun mistakes.
    Kennedy before Jackie entered in pink suit said something like ‘For Bobby and I” It’s for Bobby and ME,
    You don’t say, “FOR I”, so you don’t say, ‘FOR BOBBY AND I”
    Then when Jackie was leaving Whitehouse staff, she said “Thanks for letting the children and I stay…” It’s Letting the children and ME, You don’t say, “Letting I stay”, so you don’t say the Children and I stay”
    Geeze! Get an editor!

      People do not speak using perfect grammar. It is far more realistic in some cases to have “natural linquistic errors.”

    Like the movie. Enjoy watching it every night. Barry Pepper is the best!

    Good series but the commercials are killing it. I don’t like the feeling of being a sitting duck while commercials are being blasted at me. Just show me the movie!

    Where is Ted?

  • wendie

    The acting was great, but what happened to Teddy Kennedy?

    Many people, not counted, watched the Kennedys. Kinear was the spitting image of Kennedy and Katie was an amazing Jackie. It was refreshing to see some story of Joe, Rosemary and Bobby’s relationship with his wife. For the majority of my generation born after 1968, the only Kennedy I saw on tv was Ted, the black sheep loud mouth. So this Kennedy saga was educational as well as entertaining.

    I thought the movie was very good- doesn’t have to be all bare truth- it’s a movie- I found comforting at times and sad other times.

    I have never responded before, I can’t imagine it is duplicate comment or do you not want to post it?

    This was the BEST rendition of the Kennedy family. I was in 8th grade science at the time of Jacks shooting. My whole family idolized Jack and Jackie. I cried then and I cried last night at the same moments, I being 61 yrs, The same lump comes into my throat whenever certain parts are reviewed!! However I was very up set at the portratial of Bobby, he NOT having BUCK TEETH!!! That poor boy(actor) couldn’t even bring his lips together. Bobby was a HANDSOME Boy!!! The actor did an excellant job w/accent, actions and everything, But his teeth were the down fall of his features. Other than that the move was EXCELLANT!!!

    Thank you Reelzs for airing the miniseries Kennedys. Best program since West Wing. Enjoyed it the actors & actress were amazing.

    The Kennedys ia a great mini series- I am really enjoying it, Katie Holmes is much much better than I expected as Jackie O, even though I think the Real Jackie was a much strong willed person than it is written in this movie the same for JFK himself but the real stand out Is the Actor playing Bobby , really loving this mini series!
