TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for My All American

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (17)

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."

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.

For those looking for a sports film of basic quality and genuine narrative, "My All American" is definitively useless.

"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.

This is ideal fodder for Pizzo's brand of college-sports inspiration, but he pours on the corn syrup a little too thick.

Audience Reviews for My All American

The critics are way off on this movie. I think they may have political bias that they can't see past. The movie isn't political. The true story is very sad, but the movie is inspirational. It honors the life of a truly good person taken too soon. I wish there were more movies like this one. I can't stand football, and this movie kept me watching, and wanting to be a better person afterwards. The actors were great too.

My All American is a cheesy sports film. It follows all of the sports movie cliches. Finn Wittrock is good as the lead character. I've liked him in American Horror Story, and I liked him in this film also. Aaron Eckhart phones in his performance for most of the movie. He looks really disinterested throughout the film. I really like the girl who plays Wittrock's girlfriend. She was really good in her role. The script is really cheesy. It heavily relies on sports movie cliches. You can guess most of the plot from the beginning. There were many times where this film felt like a TV movie. The story of Freddie Steinmark is an interesting one. But the execution of this film is very poor.

Why I never pay attention to critics. Well, maybe I do if they don't like it we are going to see it. A great story about character and courage and commitment ! Why would the main stream critics like it? Go Texas!
