Los Angeles Times
Often lacks momentum, especially in its early stretches. It is, however, a far more solid film than writer-director James C. Strouse's debut, the war-themed family drama "Grace Is Gone." Full Review

Time Out New York
The girls are worth rooting for, but their pursuit is secondary to one sorry-ass dude's redemption. That's a win? Full Review
Justin Chang
With an invaluable assist from Sam Rockwell, hilarious and wounding as a deadbeat dad who lands a high school coaching gig, it's the rare inspirational movie with more than just winning or losing on its mind. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
Among the girls, Emma Roberts has solid scenes with Rockwell. Full Review
Lou Lumenick
New York Post
Sam Rockwell's films are almost always worth watching be cause of this indie stalwart's taste in offbeat projects -- and his refusal to play to the audience's sympathy. Full Review
