fun family movie. I have sons in soccer so we loved the whole movie.
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.
