Celtic Pride Reviews

An uneven but largely likable basketball-themed comedy.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Celtic Pride supplies predictably lowbrow yocks for jocks, and its rather disturbing racial implications go entirely unacknowledged.

The outcome is deeply unsatisfying.

A desperately unfunny comedy, and what's worse is that the premise really COULD have been something solid!

Dismal attempt at basketball comedy

Kind of funny, especially for Celtic fans.

This is one film that won't appeal to either sports or comedy fans.

This is a bad time for NBA fans in Boston. Just as their beloved Celtics are about to wrap up a dismal season, with nearly 50 losses and no berth in the playoffs, Hollywood comes out with a comedy about the Celtics that's even worse than the team.

Celtic Pride isn't the worst sports comedy ever made, but it certainly could have been better.

Movies like this could start giving sports a bad name.

The worst concept, execution and end product ever.

Not only is the picture woefully short on laughs, it's also coarse, overbearing and, in places, downright insulting.

You don't even have to be a Celtics fan to appreciate it. In fact, considering who becomes the butt of the film's ultimate joke, perhaps it's best if you're not one.

Celtic Pride has ingredients that could have made for a tough knockabout farce. Unfortunately, the film, directed by Tom De Cerchio from a screenplay by Judd Apatow, doesn't know the meaning of the term 'light touch.'
