“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT :

“..happily, fine acting by Anika Noni Rose, Kimberly Elise, Tichina Arnold and Mekhi Phifer, along with Goldberg and Rhames, makes it a cautionary tale worth watching..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

IN MY DREAMS :

“..one of the more satisfying movies the storied franchise has delivered in some time..”

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”

by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

TIME IS ILLMATIC :

“..the documentary offers a number of reasons to appreciate its ongoing legacy, with sufficient production values to hold the tribute together..”
