About the Movie
When the world's most celebrated soccer star, the Brazilian champion Pele, signed with the N.Y. Cosmos in 1975, the once ignored North American Soccer League became a hit with both fans and the media. The players—including Pele—became the toast of the town, earning their own private table at Studio 54. This documentary looks at the team's remarkable history and includes interviews with many of the Cosmos' star players.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Giddy, gossipy and endearingly unslick, Once in a Lifetime chronicles the rise and fall of the most famous soccer team in the United States with slapdash glee.
Fresh: Lively, free-wheeling amusement.
Fresh: Far more entertaining than it has a right to be.
Rotten: The movie is only so-so, borrowing a little from the VH-1 school of popumentary but lacking the snazzy production values.
