Critics reviews

The film has the chutzpah to suggest that maybe even the most tumultuous years are only as good as their diversions. So if we’re going to go ahead and call this a contender for the Best College Football Game Ever award, in the category of Well, Ivy League, Anyway, we might as well also consider nominating Harvard Beats Yale 29–29 as the Best Football Movie Ever, in the category of Well, Documentary, Anyway.
