Critic Review - TV Guide's Movie Guide

It's hard to understand why this good-natured look at the old Negro Leagues didn't do better at the box office. The script is a fine mix of humor, pathos, and honest drama; the direction is brisk; and the photography and production design are first-rate.

I don't believe it was playing at the top theatres. Maybe because the cast was black.
