January 2014 update:

Mike has gone from the corporate boardroom to Hollywood, having been engaged since 2006 in a project to produce a full-length feature film.

The film, entitled From the Rough, is an inspirational drama based on the true story of Dr. Catana Starks of Tennessee State University, the first African American woman to coach a men's college team. Mike learned about the story in 2004 from his younger son's chess coach, a white Swedish golfing recruit to Dr. Starks' program, who told him that Dr. Starks also broke new ground in recruiting non-African American international golfers to a historically black college. Mike developed the project, and his son, Michael A. Critelli, wrote the screenplay. They have served as producer and executive producer, respectively.

From the Rough was released in 150-200 theaters around the country on April 18. It has an excellent cast, including Taraji P. Henson, an Academy Award nominee for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and the late Michael Clarke Duncan, an Academy Award nominee for The Green Mile. The film also stars Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.
