What Are the Critics Saying About The Cost of Winning?

The Cost of Winning has no official critics rating or an average audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. The series, however, has a user score of 7.4/10 on IMDB.

Daniel Fienberg from The Hollywood Reporter writes, “You won’t learn much about St. Frances as an actual school from The Cost of Winning, nor about how their specific neighborhood in Baltimore feels about the team, but you’ll probably laugh a little, cheer a lot and maybe get teary at a few points.”

The Spool’s Sean Price says, “I rarely complain that anything is too short, but this doc could and should be longer than four 30-minute episodes. It’s so short that it’s a disservice to the lives of the people involved, and the series doesn’t fully scrutinize the social and racial implications as a result.”
