It's Hoosiers in a swimming pool—well, Glory Road, anyway
Robert Wilonsky
Village Voice

The feature debut from South African director Sunu Gonera is straight from the sports-film playbook, the one in which an underdog team coached by an obstinate overachiever overcomes obstacles and adversity to take home the gold... If nothing else, Pride has the best sports-film soundtrack ever—Philly funk and soul, '70s style. And hell, that'll get ya wet.

Ultimately what -- or who -- we enjoy most in the movie is Howard
Desson Thomson
Washington Post

Pride has Hollywood formula practically stitched to its Speedo. But the characters and the actors who play them are so captivating, we're too entertained and charmed to notice.

"Pride" is a definite crowd-pleaser.
Dennis Harvey
Variety

The inspirational sports movie formula has gotten perhaps a little too much exercise lately, with many recent tales of underdog triumph blurring together. Still, there's always room for a good one, and despite a second half that feels more routine than its first... pic has built up enough goodwill to keep auds stoked to the end.

Critic Rating: C --The trite script isn't anything to be proud of, but Howard keeps you interested.
Eleanor Ringel Gillespie
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Somewhere around the corner from the school where Antonio Banderas is teaching tough kids to mambo and the school where Hilary Swank is teaching tough kids to love literature, Terrence Howard is teaching tough kids to swim.
