Call me surprised. With Costner and Disney behind it, I figured it would be the usual mass marketed drivel the critics would crap on. But then again, maybe it helps the critics don't know XC? No idea, anyone actually seen it yet?
Editor's note: We've seen it and liked it. Our review appears here:
"McFarland USA is a winner ... This movie will certainly become a classic on all team bus rides for years to come."
It's definitely worth seeing for a running fan but not a true classic like Bull Durham or anything close to an Academy Award winner like Chariots of Fire.
PS. The Rotten Tomatoes rating is now down to 77%.
