    This movie wins you over, head and heart, without cheating. It's just about perfect. show more

    Amy Biancolli San Francisco Chronicle

    The effect is an endearing and plainspoken clarity that stops just short of naturalism; the people in his movies don't seem real, exactly, but we end up caring about them as though they were. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    The story feels believable as a witty chronicle of human behavior, in contrast with the self-consciously satirical style of some indie films and the far-fetched heroics of big studio fare. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The same kind of keen, empathetic observations that made "The Station Agent" and "The Visitor" so illuminating are at play here, too. show more

    There's a wonderfully steely spine inside of Tom McCarthy'sWin Win," but it's hard to see at first because it's inside the doughy, everyman person of Paul Giamatti. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Think "Napoleon Dynamite" and "Little Miss Sunshine." In many ways, Win Win fits that mold, which should make it McCarthy's most broadly appealing movie to date. show more

    Scott Tobias NPR

    All these characters make a beautiful mess together, even if McCarthy spends too much time tidying it up. show more

    Warmly observed and solicitous of its audience to the point of caress, Win Win is as comfortable an experience at the movies as you might have this year. show more

    In spirit, and sheer joie de vivre, it's everything the movie business should aspire to. Win Win exemplifies movies the way they oughtta be. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Confident enough to simply go with the exotica of average middle-class Americans who are well-intentioned, flawed, and dog-paddling like crazy to keep their heads above water. There's nothing at all unusual about them, and that's unusual. show more

    This was a real surprise, I really enjoyed this movie. Hard to believe that the theaters are dropping this movie, and keep playing some of the other crap out there.

    What a delightful little movie this was. I enjoyed it very much. The entire cast was fantastic. This is what you call a SLEEPER. I hope word of mouth gets this file a larger audience.

    Tthe wrong actors for the parts. The age of the actors did not fit there rolls. I was very dissappointed with the movie.

    Thought I had these rating sites figured out. Thought this would be an acceptable movie. Lose, lose. Who would like this movie? There was nothing that made you like the wrestler except he visited and sat there with his grandfather. Poor acting all around except for his mom. Wrestling his only star quality. Once more America idolizes the athlete for no apparent reason. Don\'t bother seeing this one.

    Good, enjoyable movie. Newcomer Alex Shaffer did an admirable job and I look forward to seeing him in other movies. As a former wrestler, I\'m going to have to add this one to the motivational vault.

    I was disappointed. I couldn\'t accept Giamatti\'s betrayal of himself for money. Amy Ryan was excellent, but I thought it to be a three handkerchief soap opera. bruce davidson

    Definitely the best movie I\'ve seen so far, a must see for everyone. Paul Giamatti delivers a great performance. I recommend this movie.

    A charming and emotionally involving comedy/drama that you\'ll be thankful you saw.
