Critic Reviews for The Air Up There
Working a bit too hard to send the crowd into a frenzy, the action in this basketball-oriented yarn isn't exactly fantastic, but it is mildly entertaining.
Give or take the odd spot of predictable arrogance, however, it's a good-humoured, good-hearted film.
Children may find this funny, but the film isn't geared to very young audiences. It includes much more violence and profanity than its PG rating indicates.
Neither Max Apple's script nor Paul M. Glaser's direction succeeds in convincing you that these characters live, or that this story has anything to do with any thing.
Like the multitude of Disney visitors to Africa before (and after) him, he must learn to respect the noble savages he wishes to exploit. Saleh and his Winabis are not for sale -- at least, not immediately.
Audience Reviews for The Air Up There
this was a really fun movie. there were cheesy parts that would never fly in movies now, but it was heart warming and entertaining. i like this flick.
Not bad, but very forgettable.
