Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Handcuffed to a story with no internal development and without the stylistic rigor to transform its jerky stop-and-start rhythm into an aesthetic, pic jumps from one disconnected scene to another."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"Kim Hidalgo gives a notable performance as Sticky's girlfriend Anh-thu, but it's Boucher's slow-burn intensity and unmistakable basketball skills that drive this entertaining independent drama."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Ball Don't Lie has what you might call an excess of street cred."
‑ John P. McCarthy, Boxoffice Magazine
"Had Ball Don't Lie gone the straight linear route and changed the story so that our main character was actually working toward a concrete goal, perhaps the film would've shined."
‑ Erik Davis, Cinematical
"Less a movie than a sadomasochistic plot party where every conceivable contrivance of teenage woe is asphyxiated to the brink of orgasm and then abandoned to gasp for air and soothe its throbbing vitals."
‑ Joseph Jon Lanthier, Slant Magazine
