Metacritic Score

  • 75

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Not as taut as it could have been, but I prefer its emotional perception to the pumped-up sports cliches I was sort of expecting.

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    It's in the small touches that this movie comes alive, and it's rare that directors can pull off this kind of thing.

    Variety Emanuel Levy

    The pic is so well directed and lead performance by Sanaa Lathan so charismatic that audiences will overlook the script's flaws and root for the central duo.
