The score before the timeout of the last game was Los Angeles 101, Pittsburgh 91, but when the game resumed, the Pisces made well over ten field goals. Their victory should have been by a double-digit margin. See more »

This is definitely a movie.....
27 August 2005 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

Strategically placed bong hits at 0:01, 0:33, 0:045 and 1:11 into this film will really enhance your enjoyment.

This movie is the 70's disco NBA version of Major League. It's like Major League meets Space Jam meets The Age of Aquarius meets the time you accidentally took the bad yellow blotter that was going around at Woodstock.

Dr. J pulls off a stellar performance and by the time this film is over you're convinced he's the greatest actor in the universe, provided you followed the instructions above.

If your cable is out and this is on regular TV, go for it, you won't regret it.
