Samuel L. Jackson,
In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
Eddie is a New York limo driver and a fanatical follower of the New York Knicks professional basketball team. The team is struggling with a mediocre record when, in mid-season, "Wild Bill" Burgess, the new owner, as a public relations gimmick, stages an 'honorary coach' contest, which Eddie wins. The fans love it, so "Wild Bill" fires the coach and hires her. She takes the bunch of overpaid prima donnas that make up the team and turns them around. But the owner hopes to move the team, now the darling of the New York fans, to St. Louis. He may OWN the team, but it BELONGS to the city and the fans! Written by

The New York Knicks home games were filmed at the Charlotte Coliseum, home of the Charlotte Hornets (now the New Orleans Hornets). For the final game, Hornets fans were told to cheer against the Hornets. See more »

Edwina "Eddie" Franklin:
Hey, Patton, pass the ball! What are you, the black hole of basketball? Come on!
(to Stacy) You going to let her call you a black ho?
Man, a HOLE.
What's a black hole?
A black hole is a theoretical object in space. It is so dense that matter collapses... and light itself cannot escape. (shoots his free throw)
I knew that.

Eddie: Just about a pro team overcoming obstacles that many teams face in a season. Basketball is my favorite sport. Rick Fox is my favorite actor. So this is definitely one of my favorite movies. There are so many good "life" points in the movie. Whoppi Goldberg is great in this movie and it is filled with a lot of stars without the movie being egotistical and whatnot. It is just a feel good movie with a lot of funny bits. And I watch it because of Goldberg, Fox and Malik Sealy who was so good in this movie and who was killed a while after it was released.
It will keep you laughing non-stop and the music is good as well. I hope this is helpful.
