The Replacements Reviews

Page 2 of 7
Wesley Morris
San Francisco Examiner

How do you respect a film whose idea of Jock Jam is I Will Survive?

January 1, 2000
Tor Thorsen

Director Howard Deutch drops the ball, trying to pass off a derivative hodgepodge of clichés as escapist entertainment.

| Original Score: 1.5/4

January 1, 2000
Bob Aulert

A shabby patchwork of a film, one that lip-synchs it's way through an old and timeworn situation without any attempt to add something new or interesting.

The setting of The Replacements is professional football but its intellectual context is high school.

What could have been a good football comedy doesn't even meet the level of personal fave 'Wildcats', or even the more recent 'Varsity Blues'.

So thick with cliches that it's almost suffocating.

Don't be fooled. The movie is bad -- very, very bad.

You can write the script yourself, just think nursery school. Then simplify.

Sean Axmaker

An entertaining game, but strictly minor league.

The epitome of predictable.

The Replacements is pretty good when it sticks to comedy. Unfortunately, it doesn't.

A retread of an oft-used Hollywood plot.

Is dang near the worst picture in Hackman's lengthy -- and fairly spotty -- resume.

Mind-achingly mediocre in every regard.

January 1, 2000
Shay Casey
Conceited Critic

It's almost entirely indistinguishable from every other sports movie ever made.

Utilizing state-of-the-art methods in the science of statistics, I have determined there will be virtually no audience for The Replacements.

January 1, 2000

Relentlessly mediocre.

The game scenes have little coherence or momentum.

January 1, 2000
David Elliott
San Diego Union-Tribune

Achieving the dull veneer of your standard TV movie shot on the backlots of Burbank, The Replacements lets Hackman work at about one-fourth his talent level. That still gives him a big lead over Reeves.

There isn't a Rocky-esque cliché the film doesn't tackle, throw gasping to the ground and flog to death.
