Awful trans propaganda with a few funny moments.

Based on an acclaimed documentary, the film looks to be asking us to fill in the many gaps in its Swiss-cheese narrative.

Bland photography and perfunctory writing are the very least of my issues with Next Goal Wins, a movie-shaped stain on the class of entertainment known as the sports-underdog comedy.

The film is a shoddily made and strikingly unfunny attempt to tell an interesting story in an uninteresting way.
