“..terrible partly because it's badly written, directed, and conceived and partly because it lacks the necessarily thematic coherence to accomplish proselytism of any kind..”
by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe]

“..obviously isn't targeted at us cynical New Yorkers. But it goes down more smoothly than you'd imagine thanks to Duvall and an excellent supporting cast..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..obvious in theme and intent and dedicated to hitting every point right on the head..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

“..its upbeat brand of golf mysticism isn't altogether unappealing..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]

by Sheri Linden [Los Angeles Times]
“..climactic sequence involves some well-paced..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
“..a stultifying hybrid of athletic instruction film and Christian sermon..”

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :
