There's a nice inspirational message for young girls in this movie, and boy does this movie hit it hard.

...a well-intentioned and consistently earnest endeavor that is, unfortunately, completely underwhelming almost from start to finish...

If you're a sucker for underdog stories and love rooting for a ragtag bunch that takes the nation by surprise, you'll find that "The Mighty Macs" delivers the same emotional payoff as "Hoosiers."

A by-the-numbers underdog sports movie, but as a female athlete who benefited from the national attention that team brought to female athletes, I embrace this feel-good story.

Its a story that is amazing but true, but a little depth in the character's stories would have added a lot to the overall enjoyment.

It's a shame that a movie that should have been a slam dunk feels more like a missed shot from the free throw line.

This distaff basketball tale dribbles away any chance for excitement through a mountainous accumulation of blinding clichés.

Good, clean entertainment for the whole family, snapping spare parts from hundreds of sports pictures together, fashioning a slight, but genial feature that should appeal to viewers hungry for lighter fare that isn't animated.

The Mighty Macs has its pleasant moments, but it does not have the authentic taste and aroma of Philly Cheese Steaks. Instead, it's as generic as McDonald's Big Macs.

Feminism, b-ball, and nuns. Hail Mary, full-court press.

The filmmakers may as well have taken the screenplay of Hoosiers and just made a few edits, changing the decade from the '50s to the '70s and the male characters into women.

has a gentle sweetness that is never cloying, never condescending. Instead there is an exuberance that is heart-warming -- the point of the exercise

'The Mighty Macs' might not be the champion of sports dramas, but it's entertaining and easy to watch. (Movie Review for Parents also available)

Sweetly old-fashioned … nice and well-intentioned, but on the other hand the Macs deserve better than a nice, well-intentioned movie.

It's Hoosiers in high heels with a splash of holy water. It's hard not to get sucked into the underdog story

Without resorting to any trick plays, "The Mighty Macs" is the equivalent of high-top Converse All-Stars: timeless and effective, but perhaps not flashy enough for the kids at the mall.

The blandly inspirational sports flick "The Mighty Macs" is warm- spirited but all too obvious, even as the charms of its lead performer Carla Gugino help sell this familiar story.

There's something refreshingly unpushy about the movie and its beliefs, and Gugino seems to be sauntering through on her way to a different, spikier movie, the kind that is her stock in trade.
