The Hollywood Reporter
Captures the excitement of the game as well as the intimate drama -- and comedy -- of the human conflict.
80
Variety
A sly curve ball of a documentary best described as a sports-themed "Rashomon" with an O. Henry twist.
80
A winning combination of humor and crafty filmmaking.
75
At times hilarious and occasionally very sad, it's a cautionary tale about the lure of instant fame.
75
New York Post
A wry, "Rashomon"-like tale.
75
New York Daily News
Michael Wranovics' documentary replays this sorry chapter in all-American greed in glorious detail.
70
Village Voice
Wranovics's entertaining documentary feels appropriately detached.
70
L.A. Weekly
But by film's end, no one is looking good. If Wranovics is somewhat too noncommittal in his presentation, he still shows a great eye for detail.
60
Mr. Wranovics sometimes goes too far in setting up cute situations for filming witnesses' comments.
50
But while the material is interesting, it's not substantial enough to sustain a feature-length treatment.
