Bingo Long is fun, it's pleasant to watch, but it cakewalks too much on its way to the box office.

If you've seen Major League and The Bad News Bears at least five times apiece, this is a relatively forgotten little comedy that is definitely worth a look.

Excellent performances, but the best thing about it is the sharp, sceptically witty script by Hal Barwood and Matthew Robbins.

This is a friendly, no-account movie full of intermittent high spirits.

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.
