Critic Reviews for Next Goal Wins

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (0)

Both predictable and shamelessly heart-warming.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

A genial documentary crowdpleaser about the world's worst international soccer team.

Full Review… | May 6, 2014
Variety
Top Critic

"Next Goal Wins" is an irresistible underdog story - sports-fan credentials not required.

Full Review… | April 24, 2014
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

In some ways, this is just another underdogs-go-for-it sports movie. In others, it is as sensitive and observant as an Edith Wharton novel.

If you're a person, and you find other people worth your time and attention, Next Goal Wins will stir you ...

Village Voice
Top Critic

Captivating, moving sports docu; some swearing.

Full Review… | July 24, 2014
Common Sense Media

One of the smallest triumphs in world sport inspires one of the year's most moving and entertaining documentaries...

Full Review… | June 9, 2014
Screen-Space

A crowd pleaser in every sense of the word.

Full Review… | May 15, 2014
HeyUGuys

An inspiring, never-say-die chronicle for all ages.

Full Review… | May 14, 2014
Oregonian

Watching this was the first time I have ever punched the air because a football sailed into the back of a net. And very probably the last.

Full Review… | May 11, 2014
Observer [UK]

'Tis the season for over use of sporting cliches noting the romance of the World Cup. But if you can't find it in Next Goal Wins, you're not going to find it anywhere.

Full Review… | May 9, 2014
Irish Times

Even if you have no interest in football, you will be swept along by the emotional pull of this story, willing the team on to experience the joy of scoring their first goal never mind winning a match.

Full Review… | May 8, 2014
Daily Express

The pace is a little leisurely, and it doesn't demand to be seen on a big screen, but much like the characters it portrays Next Goal Wins is an unassuming winner.

Full Review… | May 8, 2014
Daily Express

As an antidote to Premier League cynicism, it couldn't be bettered.

Full Review… | May 8, 2014
Guardian

Slightly muted closing stretch lets the air out of the ball ever so slightly, but by then it's already in the top corner.

Full Review… | May 8, 2014
Little White Lies

I could not possibly care less about football, and I fell hopelessly in love with this movie, and with the can-do amateur team it introduces us to.

Full Review… | May 7, 2014
Flick Filosopher

This is the beautiful game living up to its name.

Full Review… | May 6, 2014
Digital Spy

A triumph-of-the-underdog documentary so amusing and inspirational you'll have to Google events to ensure it's not a mockumentary. Back of the net.

Full Review… | May 5, 2014
Total Film

Charming and uplifting.

Full Review… | May 4, 2014
Empire Magazine

There's possibly more terrible football on display than even Scottish audiences can stomach, but like the team, it's a documentary with heart.

Full Review… | May 4, 2014
Scotsman

The football is dreadful but the colourful players - like transgender defender Jaiyah Saelua - make this hilarious documentary a big-hearted delight.

Full Review… | May 4, 2014
Daily Star

Next Goal Wins lingers rather too long towards the end on drawing out its message, but it is a thoroughly engaging exploration of sport, culture, community and the nature of achievement.

Full Review… | May 2, 2014
Sydney Morning Herald

Proves to be a charming and intoxicating sports documentary as it follows the brave and stoical attempt by American Samoa's national team to break the worst losing record in the history of the international game.
