David Edelstein
Howard manipulates audiences without guile, jerking tears, piling on catastrophes, smoothing out dissonances, making bad characters badder and good ones gooder--and clearly believing that this is wholesome. At what he does, he's peerless. I wish I had more respect for what he does--and for myself the next morning for surrendering. Full Review

What keeps "Cinderella" from complete hokiness is Crowe's utterly believable performance. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Overlong and unevenly paced, Cinderella Man hits stretches (especially between bouts) when it threatens to lose its audience. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Ron Howard's Depression-era movie also works from the inside out, building a classic underdog drama from depth of character, rich texture, vivid detail and stirring performances. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Cinderella Man's key emotional moments feel as if they've been predigested for an audience that can't be trusted to feel things for itself but needs to be firmly albeit lovingly pointed in the appropriate direction. Full Review
