Genuinely Liked This Movie Which Is Somewhat Suprising Because As A Rule; "I don't Do Romantic Movies"
keysercomp19

This is one my all time favorite movies.This instant classic has all of the elements that make a great film.This is a love story about two people who live and breathe for only one reason, basketball.Well that is of course until they find another purpose for life in a thing called love.This film questions whether or not a person can love two things equally and not show favor over the other while they both pull at your heart and mind. In case you're still searching for an answer,watch the film.

A decent little love story. Nothing amazing but well acted and filmed. If you have to let your girlfriend rent a chick flick, this wouldn't be a bad choice.

Fresh & serviceable, with a decent supporting cast. The important thing missing is that the movies fails to draw the viewer into a genuine feeling. Particularly weak are the "talk" scenes with the parents that don't seem to add anything to the picture.

God this movie sucked. The basketball scenes are pitiful, the little kid scenes at the beginning were nauseating, and it seemed like the writer/director knew absolutely zilch about college basketball, its coaches, scrimmages, etc. Crappy acting and a lame plot didn't help matters.
