Posted Feb 19, 2009
3.5/5 78% Bustin' Down the Door (2008) " What makes Bustin' Down the Door so appealing is that it's not about sports but rather about the passion and dedication of some bronzed, mop-haired kids on a mission to become legitimate against all odds" — Filmcritic.com
Posted Feb 12, 2009
