If only the screenplay had more going for it than hackneyed homilies and living-in-the-ghetto stereotypes. If only first-time director Sunu Gonera had a surer hand, a knack for something bolder, wilder, goofier. show more
Terrence Howard delivers another solid lead performance and competition swimming is a new arena for such films. Nonetheless, Pride is just plain trite. show more
Like many sports movies the underdoog wins out and we feel good. This one happens to be about how a swim team was formed and won in swim meets after a lot of hard work. This is not a movie for young children, but teens and adults should really enjoy it. Good acting and story.
There are inconsistent issues (daughter without scars when told of her fathers death). Bullock was disappointing, something I never thought I'd say. Save your money.
First, Jimmy Ellis the person is worth knowing about and having our young people know about. The movie itself was excellent. The performances by Terrance Howard and Bernie Mac were first rate. Kimberly Elise always adds class to any movie she's in. The swim team member are real people and it was good to see to see the young lady competing on the swim team as well. And giving credit where credit is due, Tom Arnold makes a good villain. It's a must see movie.
