IMDB Rating: 8.2
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 6.7
Los Angeles Times -
The movie's length is excessive and its arc over-familiar, but for those who don't mind a little sap - or a lot - Greater is effective.
Austin Chronicle -
David Hunt's exhausting film runs over two hours and adheres to a kitchen-sink ethos of sports tropes and spiritual asides.
Movie Nation -
The faith-based football bio-drama Greater fails on so many levels one scarcely knows where to begin.
An insistent, clunky sermon about triumph through faith, David Hunt's film is so determined to turn its subject into a Christ-like saint that it loses any sense of him as an actual flesh-and-blood man, the result being a third-string sports saga only apt to play to its devout target audience.
Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer (2000)
As if young Jake Spankenheimer doesn't have enough problems on Christmas Eve, he has to help his mom and dad prevent mean-spirited cousin Mel from taking ownership of the family store. When his grandmother gets lost in the cold in the midst of the confusion, Jake is sent out to find her, only to discover that she's become the victim of a rather unusual hit-and-run accident, and that Santa is real but not quite the sort of guy he was expecting.
