How much truth do we need in movies that are "based off of a true story"? Director Ron Howard takes many liberties throughout "A Beautiful Mind," which took home the Academy Award for Best Picture. But is the movie better or worse because of those changes?

Mike and Brian explore the film's best moments, compare Russell Crowe's performance to those he delivered in his previous two movies ("Gladiator" in '00, and "The Insider" in '99 -- both nominated for Best Picture), talk trivia and decide whether "A Beautiful Mind" really is the best movie of 2001 -- or even belongs in the top five at all.
