by Sam Adams [AV Club]
“..if George Bailey had been a high school football hero, It's a Wonderful Life might have been a little like Touchback..”
by David Martindale [Dallas Morning News]
“..the whole film feels less a paean to pigskin than a celebration of the emotional and spiritual validity of rough roads taken hard..”
by Marc Savlov [Austin Chronicle]
