It's a story that inspires with pleasing and winning performances from the entire cast of this family-oriented, feel good film.

The Mighty Macs - a feel good film for families, females, and sports fans alike...even if you're not from Philadelphia.

A by-the-numbers underdog sports movie, but as a female athlete who benefited from the national attention that team brought to female athletes, I embrace this feel-good story.

Its a story that is amazing but true, but a little depth in the character's stories would have added a lot to the overall enjoyment.

Good, clean entertainment for the whole family, snapping spare parts from hundreds of sports pictures together, fashioning a slight, but genial feature that should appeal to viewers hungry for lighter fare that isn't animated.

The Mighty Macs has its pleasant moments, but it does not have the authentic taste and aroma of Philly Cheese Steaks. Instead, it's as generic as McDonald's Big Macs.

has a gentle sweetness that is never cloying, never condescending. Instead there is an exuberance that is heart-warming -- the point of the exercise

'The Mighty Macs' might not be the champion of sports dramas, but it's entertaining and easy to watch. (Movie Review for Parents also available)

Sweetly old-fashioned … nice and well-intentioned, but on the other hand the Macs deserve better than a nice, well-intentioned movie.

Sometimes a film feels a bit too pat and yet is impossible to resist.

Without resorting to any trick plays, "The Mighty Macs" is the equivalent of high-top Converse All-Stars: timeless and effective, but perhaps not flashy enough for the kids at the mall.

There's something refreshingly unpushy about the movie and its beliefs, and Gugino seems to be sauntering through on her way to a different, spikier movie, the kind that is her stock in trade.

Tame girls' basketball tale is sentimental but inspiring.

The context and an excellent cast gives this more heft than the typical based-on-a-true-story saga of the underdog team that became national champions.

...all a bit too nice...but the competition on the court is genuinely fierce and the all around sense of sisterhood is solid.
October 20, 2011
Pleasing rather than rousing, informational rather than inspirational, Macs is more of a sit-in-the-bleachers-and-clap than a stand-up-and-cheer affair.

So few are the inspirational sports movies for girls that this formulaic drama about an underdog basketball team that beats the odds to win the national collegiate championship can be forgiven any sins.
October 20, 2011
Achingly familiar and evincing little ambition to stretch beyond its comfortably prescribed parameters of feel-good fortification, the film is mainly a nice showcase for Gugino, plus a reminder that sports aren't an exclusive domain of just men.

[A] low budget, high-fructose but generally effective rouser...
