Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

The basketball gods smile on Catholic schoolgirls in this based-on-a-true-story tale of coach Cathy Rush (Gugino) and her transformation of Immaculata College's class-of-'72 squad into a national powerhouse. Delivering women's-lib empowerment amid cultural and religious sexism, it's a saga whose clichd corniness (marriage isn't everything! athletics save the school!) would be practically sinful if not for the mighty Gugino, who almost counteracts the material's pap with megawatt charm and steel-tough resolve---exemplified by a low-angled intro shot of the poised, strutting, tight-sweater-sexy actress.
