Critic Reviews of "The Mighty Macs"New York TimesOctober 21, 2011
Sometimes a film feels a bit too pat and yet is impossible to resist.St. Louis Post-DispatchOctober 21, 2011
Without resorting to any trick plays, "The Mighty Macs" is the equivalent of high-top Converse All-Stars: timeless and effective, but perhaps not flashy enough for the kids at the mall.New York PostOctober 21, 2011
The blandly inspirational sports flick "The Mighty Macs" is warm- spirited but all too obvious, even as the charms of its lead performer Carla Gugino help sell this familiar story.New York Daily NewsOctober 21, 2011
There's something refreshingly unpushy about the movie and its beliefs, and Gugino seems to be sauntering through on her way to a different, spikier movie, the kind that is her stock in trade.Los Angeles TimesOctober 20, 2011
[It's] given such old-fashioned, kid-gloves treatment that its potential warmth and excitement caves under the weight of writer-producer-director Tim Chambers' good intentions.San Francisco ChronicleOctober 20, 2011
Sports movies live and die by what takes place on the court or in the field, and this one feels rather rote.DeadspinJune 22, 2013
There's a nice inspirational message for young girls in this movie, and boy does this movie hit it hard.Tribune News ServiceJanuary 06, 2013
PluckyReel Film ReviewsFebruary 22, 2012
...a well-intentioned and consistently earnest endeavor that is, unfortunately, completely underwhelming almost from start to finish...Movie MetropolisFebruary 08, 2012
If you're a sucker for underdog stories and love rooting for a ragtag bunch that takes the nation by surprise, you'll find that "The Mighty Macs" delivers the same emotional payoff as "Hoosiers."Atlantic City WeeklyNovember 10, 2011
A by-the-numbers underdog sports movie, but as a female athlete who benefited from the national attention that team brought to female athletes, I embrace this feel-good story.
