Critic Reviews for Windy City

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

While the endeavor isn't always smooth sailing, the heart-felt nature of his subject is generally strong enough to weather the awkwardness of this story of romance, friendship and shattered dreams.

The romance is entirely pat; as for the old-gang-of-mine gatherings, when Danny compares them to a beer commercial, he's not far off the mark.

August 30, 2004

Windy City's heart's in the right place -- it just doesn't quite have the soul to get past all the artificial contrivances of the plot.

April 7, 2020 | Full Review…

We know that men are making up for years of John Wayne stoicism, but this is ridiculous!

February 27, 2020 | Full Review…

The movie's heart is in the right place, but its methods don't match its intentions.

March 9, 2015 | Full Review…

A film with a lot of heart that, unfortunately, never gels as a whole.
