Movie Reviews

Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Eric Harrison In her first feature, writer-director Gina Prince-Bythewood tells a familiar tale with first-rate acting and an underlying sense of authenticity.
Entertainment Weekly - 9/10 by Lisa Schwarzbaum Lathan, charismatic and beautifully strong, holds the screen in every scene.
New York Daily News - 9/10 by Jami Bernard Makes hoops look like the sexiest game in town.
Film4 - 9/10 by Mark Morris The surprise element here is that the film takes Monica's career, and her love of the game, as seriously, probably more seriously, than it does Quincy's.
Baltimore Sun - 9/10 by Ann Hornaday The conventional and the cliche are slam-dunked in favor of a fresh, authentic take on passion, ambition and coming of age.
Mr. Showbiz - 8/10 by Kevin Maynard It's a tad too generic to be a slam dunk.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by 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.
Miami Herald - 8/10 by Phoebe Flowers Never really more than an amiable Cinderella story, but it leavens its subject with such heart, such idealism and such pure eroticism that it's nearly a total success.
Sight and Sound - 8/10 by Stephanie Zacharek It's a fine example of a conventionally made picture which follows all the rules yet still emerges as fresh and original.
Chicago Tribune - 8/10 by Marc Caro The biggest missteps come toward the end, when Prince-Bythewood's storybook instincts get the best of her and force a wrap-up that doesn't feel earned.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 8/10 by Sean Oxmaker Uses sports as metaphor for life with rare twist.
L.A. Weekly - 8/10 by Ernest Hardy Although the writing and the directing are smart and purposeful, the movie takes flight on the strength of its performances.
