One of Nolte's best!
14 June 2006 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I think this film is very underrated! Nick Nolte gives a perfect performance as coach Pete Bell who can't decide between the legal and the illegal way to get some excellent players to make his team better. Finally success will be more important than his own honor and he chooses the wrong way when accepts the help of Happy. This movie shows the inner changes of Pete Bell (with his weakness)and problems that coaches have to face when they try to be honest. I liked the play of Penny Hardaway and Shaq O' Neal in spite of that they don't give an unforgettable performance. 'Blue Chips' is a very exciting basketball movie with Nolte's lovable character!
