  • "While Battle of the Sexes is a reminder of the gender issues still plaguing us, it wholeheartedly embraces the equality of its two excellent leads."--USA Today
  • "A film based on a true story should have three things - strong characters, fierce conflict and a fresh angle. 'Battle of the Sexes' serves up all of them."--New York Daily News
  • "Frankly, it's surprising just how many facets of this story there are to explore, and 'Battle of the Sexes' does so in such a way that should appeal to both audiences old enough to remember and those curious to know more."--Variety
