      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It's bogged down with an unfocused script and countless sports movie cliches, but The Perfect Game still manages to charm with its unabashed sweetness and a stirring final act.

      C B Excellent movie. Predictable ending but it doesn't matter. Morality, sportsmanship, faith, sports. This is all woven together to tell the heartwarming story of an incredible underdog team from Mexico. Kid friendly with very light language, no nudity, and no violence. Some racial themes may provide opportunity for family discussion, but overall a real gem. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/28/23 Full Review teagan s Not gonna lie this is literally my favorite movie of all time. It's a great combination of humor, drama, and heart felt family themes!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Incredible story with a big potential which, sadly, could not be exploited. Bad directing, careless photography and a over dramatic soundtrack. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Those boys lived an American Dream!

      Perri Nemiroff CinemaBlend Packed with everything you'd want from an inspiring sports story. The pieces aren't put together as neatly as one would hope, but the film easily achieves the intended effect. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 13, 2010 Full Review Peter Rainer Christian Science Monitor Notable only for being a catalog of just about every kid-pic cliche' ever committed to film. Rated: D+ May 7, 2010 Full Review Rick Groen Globe and Mail Director William Dear is not one to miss a sentimental beat. Rated: 2/4 Apr 30, 2010 Full Review William Bibbiani CraveOnline No ironic detachment for William Dear's latest film: It may have every clich in the book, but The Perfect Game means everything it says. Rated: 6.5/10 May 13, 2014 Full Review Katherine Monk Canada.com It's all stencil work without a single touch of novelty, inspiration or originality. Rated: 2/5 May 12, 2014 Full Review Ryan Cracknell Movie Views The Perfect Game proves that you don't always have to reach for lofty heights to work. It's certainly not a classic. It's a simple pleasure for those times when that's all you need. Dec 2, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews
