What the Critics say
Stephen Farber Root for the underdogs.
James Berardinelli It has heart and is inspirational and, although those may be corny admissions, this is Disney and the film works as solid family entertainment.
C. Fuchs While there's really not much new here -- aside from playing in a sport that rarely gets the time of day in Hollywood -- McFarland, USA hits enough of a decent stride to go the distance and deliver enough of a winning edge.
Tomatometer Disney's inspirational sports drama formula might be old hat, but McFarland, USA proves it still works -- especially with a talented director and eminently likable star in the mix.
