      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      My All American has a genuinely moving real-life story to tell, but writer-director Angelo Pizzo fumbles it into manipulative, melodramatic tearjerker territory.

      Jeff S It's a good movie, and it's a great story. Like so many others I've seen in this genre, which are almost always torn down by critics like Rotten Tomatoes, the audience always seems to get it right. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/28/24 Full Review Derek M Despite the low ratings by film critics who know nothing, I loved this movie. The underdog sport hero films never get old and this is another good one to add to the collection. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/21/24 Full Review MAXX H This is awesome and inspiring Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/07/24 Full Review Sal D While the film could have used a little more three-dimensionalism, and included major facts (Freddie meeting Nixon, Nixon calling Freddie in hospital, Nixon declaring war on cancer because of Freddie), it does highlight an inspirational human. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review CG B Predictable yup. Tear jerker yup. Feel good movie yup.Inspiring yup. Good entertainment yup. Should you see it. yup. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/24 Full Review Walt S A wonderful movie that won't win an Academy Award but will win your heart-- unless you are a critic. A nice family movie.

      Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com My All American means well, and as a film it isn't without merit; sadly there just isn't enough of it for this inspirational sports story to emerge victorious. Rated: 2/4 Aug 22, 2016 Full Review Dan Callahan TheWrap Even those who love inspirational sports films might have to flinch from "My All American" is a movie so square, conservative and humorless that it winds up playing like a brutally straight-faced "South Park" parody of gridiron schmaltz." Nov 13, 2015 Full Review Jordan Hoffman Guardian American football is played on a rectangle, but movies about it can sure be square. Rated: 2/5 Nov 13, 2015 Full Review Dan Scully Cinema76 My All American is precisely that - a snow cone. Sweet, pleasant tasting, but ultimately cold and lacking in substance. Apr 7, 2020 Full Review Pamela Powell Daily Journal (Kankakee, IL) It's a story worth knowing and a life worth celebrating - we could all be inspired by this young man's insight and determination. If you're looking for a family film with an inspirational and affirming message, go! Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 22, 2018 Full Review MaryAnn Johanson Flick Filosopher Not an inspirational football movie but the highlights reel from one, with a golden boy who is his own manic pixie dreamboat. The worst sort of hagiography. Feb 24, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
