Movie Reviews

History, Not Basketball
William Snyder | Cookeville, TN | 03/04/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I found this DVD dull. I had expected to see actual games, not just snippets of a great shot or great dribbling here and there. This DVD spends way too much time showing people remembering the GlobeTrotters and not enough time showing actual play (and beloved Globetrotter antics).

Very disappointing (unless you are a history buff)."

"the Harlem Globetrotters transended the game of Basketball so many times over. the thoughts of seeing Meadlowlark Lemon doing His Magic is incredible. when Wilt chamberlin calls you the greatest player that speaks volumes unto itself. this is a must watch.entertaining&very educational. the Globetrotters are timeless.enjoy the History."
Great Production Effort!
Basketball Fan | Cincinnati | 11/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary brings a great piece of American history to life, and gives kids of today's generation an incredible perspective of how professional sports, especially basketball, has profoundly effected society as a whole -- in a good way!

Great effort by the producers; even greater effort by the incredibly valiant Globetrotters!"
Not bad, but
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 06/25/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The history aspects of this DVD are okay and cover the main issues with the Trotters, especially with the 1948 Lakers game, the 1952 Berlin Game with Jesse Owens, and the Trotters place in history. However, they could have included some profiles on the classic Trotters such as Goose Tatum, Meadowlark Lemon, Geese Ausbie (who is interviewed) and WHAT? Nothing on the beloved Curly Neal? Like hot dogs without the weenies!

These items would have made good extras, along with some stuff from the HG cartoons of 1970 for a complete portrait."
