What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
David Jenkin Longshots is only for those who are primarily concerned with clean and wholesome viewing.
Ulpha Edries But lameness and predictability aside, it is Jasmine's incredible journey (rather than that of her uncle) that elevates The Longshots above the usual underdogs-done-good drivel.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Her story is remarkable, especially if you factor in her national wrestling title and honor student status.
C. Fuchs This is a broadly played, by-the-books sports flick that offers no surprises.
Tomatometer The Longshots means well, but it's a largely formulaic affair, rarely deviating from the inspirational sports movie playbook.
