Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
It’s not a game anymore. In 1957, these kids were playing. And it was a perfect game.

Philadelphia Inquirer - Carrie Rickey
A very sweet, very slight family movie that scores smiles and tears of joy.

Boston Globe - Unnamed
Much like a Sox starter struggling for the first couple of innings before settling down, The Perfect Game takes a while to get to the parts worth cheering.

Tampa Bay Times - Steve Persall
I seriously doubt that it happened this way, with such convenient strife and truncated solutions. The movie is about baseball but plays like T-ball, with each situation teed up for easy swings.

L.A. Weekly - Unnamed
Barely dramatizing off-the-field struggles like visa problems and the boys' first taste of good ol' American racism, the film does a disservice to the community it depicts by rendering an inspiring cultural story entirely uninspired.
