Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    A wonderfully entertaining, raunchy, hilarious and savage foray into the lives of a couple of beat-up middle-weight boxers who get a second chance.

  • 20

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    Are they fools or heroes? Because the movie can't decide, neither can we. And without an emotional payoff, Play It to the Bone ends up stranded in serio-comic limbo.

  • 20

    Variety Robert Koehler

    A woefully under-realized story of small-time boxers enjoying perhaps their last moment in the spotlight.
