“It leaves you with an uncomplicated warmth that few films find these days…” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

“A beautifully told story in high Hollywood tradition. Clooney’s film benefits greatly from a cast whose dynamic and charm are as engaging as they are entertaining.” – Linda Marric, HeyUGuys

…a gentleman’s sports movie, with Clooney working hard to make one “like they used to.” He brings it off, even if there’s a lingering quaintness to it all.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
