Movie Reviews

Funny, Enjoyable Basketball Flick
Scott FS | Sacramento, CA United States | 04/05/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Hmmm. I don't understand the negative reviews of this film. I thought it was funny and good entertainment. I give it three and one-half stars, especially if one loves sports. The Utah Jazz meet the Boston Celtics in the final two games of a fictitious NBA championship series. Two Celtics fans who live and die with their beloved team are at the game, and get a bit more involved in the outcome of the series than most fans would, that's for sure. I laughed out loud a number of times watching this film, and that's how I judge a comedy. I guess some of the reviewers who didn't like the film were disappointed that the film wasn't a documentary or something. Ya know, the basketball isn't real, guys! It's a movie, with actors and extras and probably semi-pro players doing the action scenes. (To be honest, the action was pretty good, in my opinion.)The plot has been related a number of times below, so I'll just add a few observations.Aykyrod (Jimmy Flahety) is as deadpan, goofy and funny as ever, on a par with his best. Stern (Mike O'Hara) is his equal in comedy. And Wayans (Lewis Scott) gets the superstar disdain for the fans just about perfect. I really identified with the fan-tastical devotion to the Celtics since I'm a superstitious sports fan of the same ilk as Jimmy and Mike. They have great seats near the court, but switch seats depending upon when the game is played. If their team starts losing, they'll switch back to try to change the Celtic's luck. They'll ask their neighbors in the stands to do the same. Or even everybody in their section of seats. It's a mark of their devotion to the team. Oh, by the way, they have heckling down cold with some hilarious and dead-on insults so much so that they even rattle the Utah Jazz coach into almost rushing them in the stands. Jimmy and Mike's efforts as 'sixth men' are, well, unconventional. And, as could be expected, the plan doesn't quite turn out they way they envisioned. It's light and funny throughout the film.Recommended, especially for anyone who is more than a casual fan of the game."

"This movie is hilarious! Sure the basketball scenes are less than accurate or real, but this is Hollywood not the NBA, I found the jokes and the chemistry between Daniel Stern, Dan Akroyd and Damon Wayons way funny and the ending is good as well. Taken for what it is I highly recommend it."
