Rating: 3/5 -- Good-hearted '80s biking movie has cursing, sex. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- American Flyers is shaky at the core, because it tries to tap-dance around its own central issues. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The performances aren't bad, but they aren't good enough to give the film the heft it doesn't otherwise have.
New York Times
May 20, 2003
A pleasant, straight-down-the-road, cliché-ridden ride. Full Review
Time Out

Its overwelming sentimentality obscures the excitement of the race and some fine performances. Full Review
May 24, 2003
Scriptwriter Steve Tesich returns to bicycle racing, but he's forced to throw in a subplot about an incurable movie disease to make the thing work.
Aug 4, 2008
Rating: 71/100 -- Thankfully, Costner and Grant are able to overcome the bumpy screenplay and ride American Flyers to a satisfying, if predictable, conclusion.
