Movie Info

After an accident ends his career as a hydroplane pilot, Jim McCormick (Jim Caviezel) settles into life as an air-conditioner mechanic, husband and father in a Midwestern town. The population of Madison, Ind., is relatively small, but it has been a fixture of national powerboat racing for years -- although that's in danger of ending. With life in the town being bleak enough as is, Jim, with the blessing of his wife (Mary McCormack) and son (Jake Lloyd), enters the 1971 Gold Cup hydroplane race.

Critic Reviews for Madison

  • There is one major difference between the two, however. Hoosiers is a fantastic movie, maybe the best sports-related motion picture ever made; Madison, quite simply, is not.

    July 5, 2005 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • You've seen a movie that has the exact same scene after scene and the sport's just been different.

    April 25, 2005
  • A touching, spirited family movie that, in the Rocky tradition, is about a sports challenge that represents the hopes and aspirations of characters with little reason to expect success.

    April 22, 2005
  • A stubbornly up-with-people schmaltzfest, it's the kind of corn that gives angst a good name.

    April 22, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • There isn't a scene, an action or a character that rings true, yet the narrative summary of the events that inspired it is a matter of record.

    April 22, 2005 | Rating: 1/4
  • Madison brings us the news that miracles really can happen, and an apparent case of divine intervention is the only reason this artifact is being dumped into theaters.

    I grew up near Madison, Indiana, lived there briefly and spent a lot of time there - so this movie is kind of special to me for those reasons. Other than that it's not really very good.
