About the Movie
Mariel Hemingway (TV's "Civil Wars," "Star 80") and Scott Glenn ("The Silence of the Lambs") star in Oscar-winner Robert Towne's ("Chinatown," "Shampoo") controversial, gripping and skillfully photographed movie. Two aspiring female athletes become friends, lovers and ultimately Olympic competitors in a relationship that suggests that the "war between the sexes" is not a battle over gender, but over sexuality. "One of the year's 10 best" (Siskel & Ebert)

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Unless you're fascinated by all of the prettified slow-motion footage of Chris, Tory and the other women athletes, your eye is likely to wander to your watch long before the end.
Fresh: Personal Best is likable precisely because it is so unembarrassed.
Fresh: This is a very physical movie, one of the healthiest and sweatiest celebrations of physical exertion I can remember.
Fresh: An unusual subject to get the Hollywood treatment though, and as such it should be commended, while Hemmingway is always worth catching.
