Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [A] gently affecting documentary ...
Fresh: Filmmakers Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart deliver a bleakly potent portrait of life in an economically devastated Middle American town.
Fresh: This stellar, incisive slice-of-life doc centers on the kind of crowd-pleasing competition story that lures in audiences and then lays bare heartsick truths about small-town America today.
Fresh: Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart's doc, exec-produced by Steve Buscemi and Stanley Tucci, is one more sad, serious eulogy for a way of life.
Oops forgot Zack...
Also starring Zachary Fish :)
Not too special
Just ok, nothing all that special about this. I watch a lot of documentaries and didn't feel too close to this one. Pretty said little sleepy town, feel sorry for them.
One fo the best sports docs I've seen in a long, long time. Highly recommend!
