Rating: 2.5/4 -- There's something oddly dissonant about listening to a gaggle of Harvard graduates talk about being scrappy, blue-collar underdogs. Full Review

It is likely to delight even viewers who don't give a hoot about sports. Full Review

HARVARD BEATS YALE is both an irresistible human story and as fine a documentary on football as HOOP DREAMS was on basketball....The structure is especially effective because if the passing of 40 years does nothing else, it lends perspective to passions and memories.

Rating: 3/4 -- Simply by letting the onetime gridiron stars talk about the game they played and the era it was played in, the capsule cracks open and you're sucked inside and you cannot believe, even if you know the details, how that game turned out the way it did.

[F]ilmmaker Kevin Rafferty makes the case for remembrance and for the art of the story in the preposterously entertaining documentary HARVARD BEATS YALE 29-29...

Rating: 3/4 -- Harvard Beats Yale 29-29, a mosaic of storytelling told by former college-level gridiron athletes, pieces together the remarkable story of a fateful 1968 match between the titular Ivy League teams.
Seattle Times
Mar 19, 2009
Rating: 3/4 -- Rafferty uses interviews with the former players, most now in their 60s and nearly all of them touchingly philosophical, to reveal the cultural issues buffeting their campuses, but not necessarily their locker rooms.
