Comes off like an amateur production.

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
January 1, 2000
Despite a cliched set-up, a politically incorrect position on a labor dispute and predictable action on the playing field, it comes out a winner.

Reeves shows as much emotion as a baked potato.

The Replacements tries to set some kind of record for regurgitating sports movie cliches faster than any film that's run before.

A winner in its self-proclaimed minor league.

January 1, 2000
Director Howard Deutch drops the ball, trying to pass off a derivative hodgepodge of clichés as escapist entertainment.
