A richly composed and well acted ensemble piece...

Stone's blend of mayhem and sensuality-which doesn't shy away from the eroticism of athletes-is a refreshing alternative to the solemnity of most sports dramas.

January 16, 2003
A solidly-acted action-drama hybrid whose cartoonish asides largely undermine the greater subtext.

...the movie remains watchable if only for Pacino's amazing performance and the action-packed football sequences.

Amidst all the drama, there are comedic moments, such as the Sharks' version of the self-congratulatory end zone dance the Dirty Bird, the metal-vs.-rap locker room debate and the loose crocodile in the shower.

Despite the film's multifarious faults, which also include a truly rotten cameo from Stone himself as a sports commentator, there can be no argument that this is one of the most visually exciting experiences you will have this year...

Any Given Sunday may fall on its face a few times during the game, but wouldn't you rather watch a team going recklessly for the touchdown than playing safely for time?
