Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: [It] aims to be rousing rather than revelatory, and it mostly succeeds. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Feb 19, 2015

Fresh: Inspiration is for sale in here. And though more than a spoonful of sugar is slathered over the fact-based script, the movie delivers as promised on the thrill of the race and the lump in the throat. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 20, 2015

Fresh: A canny combination of elements unites with an unlikely true story to make this more effective than you might be expecting. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Feb 19, 2015

Rotten: It's all a bit much. – Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail, Feb 20, 2015

Fantastic end to end

Its been along time since the crowd applauded at the end of a movie. This one we laughed, we cried, we cheered, wow…what a fantastic family night. “That ain’t Danny Diaz!"

Family friend

It's been a long time since I've seen a movie with such a great story plot, based off of a true story, underdog movie. Also cheered very loudly in the movie theatre for these wonderful men.

So fun and inspiring

The movie is great to watch. It's thrilling and suspenseful, making you go to the edge of your seat. The movie has an amazing amount of humor and the acting is incredible. The joy you feel for these characters really makes you wish for their success and gets you involved with the cars get and really makes you feel like the person. The movie isn't just about Kevin Costner, it's about family, but not in the way you'd think it. Each character brings out a special role on the cross country team and the way they interact with one another is truly incredible. This review is not biased, and I just want anyone reading this to know that anyone who says that McFarland USA isn't a prize-winner, it doesn't matter, because once you're watching this movie, you're already a prize-winner. Plus, also remember that whoever thinks that this movie wasn't as captivating as other movies, then don't watch it if you really believe a random person on the Internet. Then again, I am that person.
