Critic Reviews of "Touchback"Arizona RepublicApril 19, 2012
Earnestness and obviousness compete for supremacy early on in Don Handfield's film, with the latter fully in front; happily, earnestness stages a comeback by the end.VarietyApril 16, 2012
A lightweight and overlong feel-good drama that plays like a mashup of It's a Wonderful Life and Friday Night Lights.Film.comApril 13, 2012
Are any of them alone reason enough to sit through two hours of warmed-over life lessons? Not particularly, but it should be said that the cast and crew have made a fair stride towards redeeming earnest low-budget filmmaking of this ilk...Dallas Morning NewsApril 12, 2012
If George Bailey had been a high school football hero, It's a Wonderful Life might have been a little like Touchback.AV ClubApril 12, 2012
Touchback takes a handoff from Peggy Sue Got Married and It's A Wonderful Life and runs it up the middle for a modest gain.We Got This CoveredJanuary 16, 2013
Touchback is a sweet family film that ultimately lacks enough insight into the main character's thought process as he struggles to make a decision that could change his life.Examiner.comSeptember 16, 2012
[I]t's not a bad film. It just needed a little trimming and a little work on the ending.CraveOnlineSeptember 07, 2012
Touchback isn't a bad movie, aside from the makeup effects that look like someone just shoved a pillow down Bryan Presley's shirt. It's just an unconvincing one.Common Sense MediaApril 16, 2012
Former jock gets second chance in uplifting (albeit cliched) sports drama.Cinemalogue.comApril 13, 2012
Ultimately it's too sentimental to have the desired emotional impact.BrianOrndorf.comApril 13, 2012
It's flawed but amiable, leading with its heart to tell a simple tale of refreshed consciousness, blended with a little touch of fantasy to give the material a comforting lift.Austin ChronicleApril 13, 2012
Touchback may accurately be called cornball hokum by some, but it's nevertheless a well-made film filled with heart and soul (and Snake Plissken).
