My All American

Critics Consensus

My All American has a genuinely moving real-life story to tell, but writer-director Angelo Pizzo fumbles it into manipulative, melodramatic tearjerker territory.

  • Even those who love inspirational sports films might have to flinch from "My All American" is a movie so square, conservative and humorless that it winds up playing like a brutally straight-faced "South Park" parody of gridiron schmaltz."

  • American football is played on a rectangle, but movies about it can sure be square.

  • Don't get me wrong; this film accurately shares a wonderful guy's all-too-short life with us. I only wish it had been delivered in a more well-rounded way.

    November 13, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • For those looking for a sports film of basic quality and genuine narrative, "My All American" is definitively useless.

    November 13, 2015 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • "My All American" would have done better to dig deeper in its portrayal of a man who set such a high bar for the intrinsic character of a football player. Because he's actually the kind of example the sport could really use right now.

  • So white bread and scrubbed clean of any edges that it plays like a Saturday matinee at the cineplex in Pleasantville.
