Time Out says

As far as wholesome pictures about speedboat races go, this is competent, brief and utterly innocuous. The model is Hoosiers, with Gene Hackman's Indiana basketball coach swapped out for another local legend, Jim McCormick (a pre-Christ Caviezel), who in 1971 hydroplaned his way to small-town redemption on a national stage lent by ABC's Wide World of Sports. The wandering mind will make its own meal of such red-state fantasia, but as with last year's Friday Night Lights (a far-superior excavation of rural desperation), it's hard not to root for the underdog.
