Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 06/01/2006
4 stars out 5 -- "[T]his absorbing doc charts the swift rise and fall of a club....The filmmakers make intelligent use of lively interviews..."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2006
"[E]njoyable....ONCE IN A LIFETIME genuinely captures the game's eternal thrill."
New York Times - 07/07/2006
"Giddy, gossipy and endearingly unslick....[The film] chronicles the rise and fall of the most famous soccer team in the United States with slapdash glee."
Box Office - 09/01/2006
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n intriguing drama that directors Paul Crowder and John Dower are able to reconstruct through the candid and sometimes contradictory recollections of nearly every key figure involved."
Uncut - 10/01/2006
4 stars out of 4 -- "Pele, Cruyff and Beckenbauer...they're all featured in this documentary about the rise and fall of the New York Cosmos."
Ultimate DVD - 10/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "Told with humour and nostalgia, this is an interesting insight into an almost forgotten time in American sporting history."
