The National Basketball Association play-offs are taking place, and the Boston Celtics are facing the Utah Jazz in a crucial series. This is also the last year that any games will be played in the Boston Garden, which is going to be torn down after the end of the season. Mike and Jimmy, two die-hard sports fans who will risk anything for the Celtics to win, are really getting into the games. The Celtics would be a sure win if it weren't for Lewis Scott, the cocky, loud-mouth star of the Jazz. After Scott himself punishes the Celtics in a bad loss, Mike and Jimmy decide to take things into their own hands by kidnapping Scott and holding him until after the crucial game takes place. Written by
After badly spraining his right ankle in the one-on-one game with Lewis, Mike goes to see his wife and can barely walk up the stairs. In a subsequent shot while they are all at the dinner table, a long shot shows Mike vividly bouncing his right leg on the ball of his foot showing no signs of the injury, impossible to do without immense pain.

Who are you man? Some bitter ex-high school player who never really made it? You sit around, watching sports, criticizing professional athletes 'cause you wish it was you out there.
You are so far off. It's sad.

After the credits, the Boston Garden is demolished. (This is a special effect; at the time the movie was released, the real Garden was still standing.) See more »
A really good movie & the 3 main stars are all funny.
Damon Wayans, Dan Aykroyd & Daniel Stern work really well together in this mild comedy, i got this on DVD for like $9 Canadian when i was visiting there in 2001 & it's certainly money well spent. Two Boston Celtic nutty fans really want the Celtics to win so they kidnap the star player of opposition team the Lewis Scott of the Utah Jazz. Don't worry about the cheesy comments for this movie, trust me its a lot better than movies such as Bushwacked, Marci X & Coneheads, each one of this movies contain one of the 3 main stars of this movie. You can even watch this with the family, I don't recall any rude scenes or any fowl language. Slightly better than the average movie. Daniel Stern & Dan Aykroyd are really funny together. The overall mark for this movie i would give is an 8 / 10. Recommended to anyone who likes sport comedies such as Rookie of the year, The Sandlot Kids & The replacements.
