  1. Beautifully edited, Go Tigers! is an enthralling look at the drama that can transpire in the autumn of one small town on any given Friday.
  2. Reviewed by: Joe Leydon
    Arguably the best sports-oriented documentary since "Hoop Dreams."
  3. Reviewed by: Tim Sanger
    Sports fans will go nuts over it, as will anyone who appreciates the fine cinematic storytelling on display in the film.
  4. 70
    The funny and touching result is worth cheering for.
  5. If you're a football fan, chances are you won't be bored, and the distraction may be quite welcome. As for everyone else, you may lose interest right around the third quarter.
  6. Reviewed by: Mark Olsen
    Among the film's other drawbacks are how conventional it feels in its structure and strategy, often misguidedly going for the epic high-key feel of classic NFL Films on a low-key, DV budget.
  7. 50
    Takes too long to get its themes and characters out on the field.
