Pride is MUCH better than the 2.6 rating - yes, it does wear its heart firmly on its sleeve, but a turkey it most definitely is not. We loved Akeelah and the Bee last year and would put this in the same sense of journey: the ad campaign and tag line should be:"The waves they created changed their world forever..."
It does what sport movies should do - gives you the training, the sport, the lift. Of course you know the step by step play but that doesn't alter the fact that this is watchable.
I'm afraid I don't get the objections on ground of race - I would imagine being poor, black, and impoverished and the first in my sport in 1974 would be realistically unbelievably tough.
If you like your films to be about values - then is is definitely worth the view.
IMDb voters should be ashamed - this is not the worst film of all time by a long shot - or all our hearts dead?
Ignore the vote - and view with an open heart - we found it decent, inspiring, and all together a satisfying view.
