      Frederick Blichert The Tyee (British Columbia) Its hard not be drawn in by the players, each completely endearing in her own way. While Plazas star power lures us in, her teammates and rivals have no trouble keeping us invested. Feb 13, 2022 Full Review Brent McKnight The Last Thing I See It's possible to watch The Pistol Shrimps as little more than the story of a unique, admittedly often silly niche subculture. But there's more if you want it, including a deceptive emotional weight and understated progressive streak that flows beneath. Rated: B Jul 3, 2020 Full Review Jessica Baxter Hammer to Nail Giving some long overdue and well-deserved attention to female athletes is just one of the great aspects of Brent Hodge's latest documentary, The Pistol Shrimps. Aug 7, 2017 Full Review Lucy Lau Georgia Straight Don't know a thing about basketball? Neither do the Shrimps-or more specifically, neither do their dedicated podcasters... But Hodge delves into the lives of the league's women with such spark that the points don't really matter. May 3, 2016 Full Review John Fink The Film Stage Frothy and brief, with a few big laughs.

      Audience Member A very fun look at LAs women's rec league. A handful of notable comedy people really round out the doc. I'd been hearing about this doc on podcasts for a few years and was glad to finally watch it Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Five American Basketball Stars for these, our shrimps!
