Critic Reviews of "Woodlawn"Hollywood ReporterOctober 19, 2015
Sports and religion are a potent combination, one that siblings Jon and Andrew Erwin (October Baby, Mom's Night Out) exploit to canny effect in their new film based on the real-life Woodlawn High School football team.VarietyOctober 19, 2015
Until the balance tips rather too blatantly toward the latter during the final minutes, the overall narrative mix of history lesson, gridiron action and spiritual uplift is effectively and satisfyingly sustained.Los Angeles TimesOctober 17, 2015
Sure, it's an evangelical "Remember the Titans," but at least the Erwin brothers have made an effort, parochially speaking, to go outside the lines.Flick FilosopherFebruary 21, 2016
A film taken with the singular American delusion that Jesus loves football... though it also throws in a new delusion: Jesus hates the U.S. Constitution.Movie NationOctober 29, 2015

Enough of the flick worked for me to give it a slight recommendation. (Full Content Review - Violence, etc. - for Parents also available)Christianity TodayOctober 14, 2015
The Erwins' latest film leans heavily on a genre formula, but it is better than most "Christian" films.
