      Barry G Never Give Up is a very sweet motion picture about a world-champion deaf tennis player who persevered. Its natural audience consists of the 30 million Americans with a hearing loss, the 23.6 million Americans who play tennis, and whatever percentage of American's persevere. I don't do any of those things so I'm not the first person who should be running to this film, yet it was still engaging and had me shedding a tear or two. Harrison Stone gave a great performance as Brad Minns, I can't believe they somehow got Al Gore to play his dad, and sadly the lone bad performance was by an approximate 1979 Ford Mustang, which I don't really count as a Mustang at all. I am dedicating this review to my friend Joy, who taught me everything I know about tennis, and makes me want to actually sit down and see a match or two. But only with her. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/06/23 Full Review Julie S Inspiring film of a man's story that deserves to be told! Highly recommend this heartfelt movie for you and your family! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/06/23 Full Review Doc H I thought this was a nice movie that was a little boring at times with the tennis scenes.The best parts were the flashback scenes with the younger grade school character who did a superb job of acting.Overall I am a fan of tennis and I do think that it has a good message but it could have been more focused on family. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/04/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the worst movies I have seen. The acting is okay at times, but mostly awful. I love the sport of tennis which is why I saw this. The tennis scenes were clumsily edited and uninteresting. The real-life story the film is based on should be inspiring, but this film falls flat. This is truly an awful film. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/04/23 Full Review wendy k I loved this movie. I thought it was a rag to Riches movie. It talked about someone who wanted to fit in but he didn't seem to be part of the sign or not sign community. The struggles he faced were real.
