"Actually I came across this movie in a different way. I was hoping to download 30 Days the tv show by Morgan Spurlock but instead I got a Basketball movie. I was quite upset because I wanted to watch 30 Days the TV show but decided to give the movie a chance. It showcased Da Brat and Taye Diggs so I thought, hey this cant be so bad, right?
I was wrong. Most of the movie I laughed through because the movie was so poorly acted. In scenes that are supposed to be serious I was laughing because the white kid in the movie, Jason (Charlie Neal), was so horrible in acting. He is doofy looking and doesn't seem to fit well with the movie. Taye Diggs has a small role in the movie and everything was on Hill Harper's performance. He did an excellent job with what was there and was the movie's star.
As for the movie itself. It's not like a movie more as an afterschool special. Everyone learns their lesson, everyone wins, and racism is beat. I'm sorry, nothing is that picture perfect. We all have reservations. The portray of the ghetto is way out of the ordinary. White cops stopping the white kid and no gang violence toward the white kid. Just seems out of place. It's more of a feel good movie and it shows because they gloss over the negative stuff very quickly.
I'd never heard of this movie before and at least got to experience it but it's overly bad. Poor acting, bad storyline, and emotionless characters make this movie pure garbage. If they would have had a bigger budget and better acters, maybe. But of course that's a big maybe because the story itself was seriously flawed."
