Critic Reviews for On the Right Track

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

On the Right Track' is a vehicle for Mr. Coleman that depends entirely on the premise that he is lovable. Only his most ardent television fans are likely to accept this.

April 8, 2015 | Full Review…

What could have been a bright little comedy is so jampacked with supporting players, subplots, and distractions that it seems much longer than it is, and even Coleman's fortitude doesn't get us through.

April 8, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Other than a few cute lines and situations, there's little else of value in this absurd and extremely naive picture.
