Critics Reviews

Chicago Tribune
Corny as it may sound though, it's all true-except, of course, for that mythical movie last-second championship bit.

The Hollywood Reporter
What emerges is that Yao is a fascinating individual with great humor and modesty, as well as the potential to be one of the greats. Unfortunately, that's all we really find out about the guy.
