Critic Reviews for One on One

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Attractive if soft-centred basketball story, a sort of junior Rocky.

Time Out
Top Critic

It also has some very good sequences that are not at all expected, including the smashing basketball game that concludes the film.

New York Times
Top Critic

An earnest, mostly believable study of the psychological struggle that can occur between player and coach.

Audience Reviews for One on One

If you like this movie (and you will, if you like Annette O'Toole), you will also like the European version of "The Entertainer" (1976). You don't know it yet, but you will...


Written by and starring a young Robby Benson, a story told from the prospective an aspiring young college freshman, who simply loves the game of basketball, and teaches a valuable lesson as only Henry Steele can deliver it.
