About the Movie

The year is 1973, and Jim Ellis (Terrence Howard), a college-educated African-American, can't find a job. Driven by his love of competitive swimming, Jim converts an abandoned recreational pool hall in a Philadelphia slum with the help of Elston (Bernie Mac), a local janitor. But when city officials mark the new Philadelphia Department of Recreation for demolition, Jim fights back – by starting the city's first African-American swim team. Recruiting troubled teens from the streets, Jim struggles to transform a motley team of novices into capable swimmers – all in time for the upcoming state championships. But as racism, violence and an unsympathetic city official threaten to tear the team apart, Jim must do everything he can to convince his swimmers that victory, both in and out of the pool, is within their reach…

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Pride is a fairly predictable entry in the highly predictable inspirational sports drama genre. But the movie is saved by the earnest, believable performance of Terrence Howard and by Bernie Mac in a more serious role than usual. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Pride wades into the shallows when it ought to be diving into the deep end. In waters this familiar, everyone knows how to swim. – Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2007

Rotten: That Pride ultimately gets to you is more of a surprise than the outcome because it's not very well-constructed. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Mar 24, 2007

Fresh: The dialogue and plot may be cliche, but Howard's slow-burn portrayal redeems the weak writing. – Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger, Jun 24, 2010
