"We already had this film for along time on vcr but this wasn't good anymore. We like this type of movie en in perticular performances of Whoopy Goldberg. It's a nice film to watch and inspires you to go uot and play some 9-ball yourself."

"A 1989 made for TV movie features a pre-Ghost Whoopi Goldberg playing a single mother who is about to lose her house if she doesn't come up with $7500 in four months. She has a cloyingly cute and precocious teenage daughter (Tasha Scott) and she works in a diner for two very nice people. On a visit to her estranged parents, she stops in an old hangout---a billiard parlor and decides the best way to come up with the money is to become a professional billiard player. She is encouraged in this by a wily promoter, played with his usual aplomb by Dennis Franz. During one tournament, she meets a handsome playboy, played with regal blandness by Dorian Harewood. Of course, she falls for the guy but he's not the most loyal of partners, and daughter Tasha doesn't like him too much. Meanwhile, Franz reveals his feelings for Whoopi which gets him nowhere, and we have the obligatory ten thousand dollar championship in San Francisco where Whoopi is in the finals against loverboy Harewood. Realizing how hard it is to make a billiard game breathtakingly exciting, the director uses gimmicky multi-image camera shots to try and heighten the non-existent suspense. You know from the start where this movie will end up and Goldberg's final scene comes out of nowhere, and she ends up with Harewood and not Franz. Might be an okay family film, but you can do better."
