Reviews


75
Chicago Tribune - Unnamed
A true story, feel-good parable and a respectable, uplifting descendent of "To Sir, With Love" and "Lean On Me."
70
Film Threat - Unnamed
Unfortunately, the accompanying story threads tend to bog down the action rather than provide contrast between the games.
70
Variety - Robert Koehler
Both an inspirational sports movie and an unexpected multi-level urban drama that plays by its own clock.
63
Charlotte Observer - Lawrence Toppman
Heartwarming drama.
60
The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
Thanks mainly to his (Jackson) considerable presence, Coach Carter works more effectively than expected.
