Variety - Unnamed
A kind of classic of American sports history.
90
The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
This is one helluva good movie that craves the eyeballs of as many American high schoolers as it can possibly get.
83
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
It's the die-hard camaraderie that undergirded this squad and lifted it to the top.
80
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan
A knockout of a sports documentary. Destined against its will to be known as "the LeBron James movie," it is all that, and a good deal more.
75
USA Today - Claudia Puig
While More Than a Game is a terrific exhibition of talent, exuberance and skill, it is above all a moving tribute to enduring friendship.

"ADDICTED TO SEXTING", a compelling (and sometimes humorous) look at the rise and proliferation of this social phenomenon from several varying perspectives and how the lives of those engaged in it are affected. Throughout the course of the film, we examine nearly every aspect of what has become a national and international pastime. A vast range of opinions give their input about this delicate subject and, as such, discussions with notable figures in the entertainment, political and medical fields (among others) are included. The film touches on the many high profile scandals surrounding public officials and the resulting consequences of their actions. In stark contrast, an honest look at the possibility of sexting as a positive development within the framework of healthy relationships is also presented. Sexting exists and is not likely to disappear anytime soon. "ADDICTED TO SEXTING" shows the why, how and what possible purpose it serves.
