Are the reviews any good?

The film has received mixed reviews, but we hope they give you some clarity. Decider says: “STREAM IT, but you should expect that for kids, the bits based around bodily functions in Home Team are going to ring with more truth than any lessons learned.”

Roger E. Bert was critical of the movie saying: “Ignoring everything that NFL fans bring to “Home Team,” the real problem is that it’s just poorly constructed on its own terms. Pretend it’s not a “true story” and it’s still a shallow representation of sports, parenthood, and comedy, with almost no laughs.”

Additionally, the movie has scored 5.8 on IMDb ratings. So, viewers should make their choice carefully.
