What separates this film, from most sports movies, is has less to do with basketball, and much ado with the ignorant community. Just reading the AV Club knows that film critic was out to get the filmmakers and he should be deeply ashamed.

This is an absolute must see movie, if the movie is true to what happened in real life I don't know, but it is one of the best movies I've seen this millennium so far :)

This is another one of the movie that makes you feel good and touch your emotions deeply.

I thought that this movie was excellent, one of the best, very many great young actors for example Chris Staples. The ending was predictable, but nonetheless entertaining.

Overall I liked this movie, it even made me cry and not just a few tears but a lot (along with my chin quivering a bit)

I am glad I saw this movie, and would recommend anyone else, who is contemplating seeing it, to just see it. I initially put off seeing the movie due to reading comments about how "predictable" it was and comments like, "Oh just another movie about how some guy who over come the odds to win the BIG GAME". But the movie is about so much more - I believe in God - and about values and lessons in integrity. You don't have to be a slam dunk enthusiast to enjoy it because the slam dunking is really just a backdrop to the main theme of the story. But then again, if you like amazing slam dunks - most anywhere in any film, you should also find the these scenes enjoyable.
