Variety - Unnamed
Offers an inspiring story, lush visuals and accessible characters to give a black-hat-white-hat view of class struggle in America and England.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
As feel-good as any sports movie you're likely to find. It's a solid choice for family viewing, but is equally worthy of viewing by solo adults.

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
I am not a golf fan but found The Greatest Game Ever Played absorbing all the same, partly because of the human element, partly because Paxton and his technicians have used every trick in the book to dramatize the flight and destination of the golf balls.

The Hollywood Reporter - Sheri Linden
Actor-turned-helmer Bill Paxton has fashioned solid family entertainment in this well-cast feature.

The New York Times - Dana Stevens
The mixture of old-fashioned themes with newfangled techniques makes The Greatest Game Ever Played a canny piece of feel-good entertainment.
