“The Kennedys”: What The Critics Say

kennedysday600237_a_lThe controversial production “The Kennedys,” starring Greg “can you believe the hairpiece?” Kinnear and Katie Holmes (Kinnear as JFK and Barry Pepper as Bobby are pictured), debuts Sunday on ReelzChannel. The History channel generated a slew of headlines in January after yanking the miniseries from its schedule. At the time, the network claimed the mini wasn’t a right fit with its brand. Producer Joel Surnow recently told The Hollywood Reporter that it was because of his conservative-leaning political views. Here’s what the critics are saying. I notice that Linda Stasi, in the Murdoch-owned (you know, Fox-like) New York Post, adheres to the party line, calling “The Kennedys” “without a doubt one of the best, most riveting, historically accurate dramas about a time and place in American history that has ever been done for TV.”
