Critic Reviews of "For the Boys"
EmanuelLevy.ComFebruary 05, 2007
Never a subtle director, Rydell goes for the obvious and sentimental. Starring Bette Midler and James Caan. his musical chronicle is not so much nostalgic as it is banal, reducing major events in American history to the level of personal feuds.
Las Vegas Review-JournalDecember 03, 2004
Hokey and sentimental, but Midler's divine.
MovieholeSeptember 18, 2002
A very enaging, ultimately satisfying drama with two knockout performances

There are moments when you might find yourself moved beyond reasonable expectation.
