The Best basketball movie ever made!!!!!!
22 July 1999 | by (New Castle, Pa) – See all my reviews

Rebound is the best basketball movie I ever seen. I love how the 'Goat' soar through the air grabbing money of the top of the backboard. That guy could jump. I also like some of the moves he does when he drives and all kinds of stuff. Overall if you haven't seen this movie then go out and rent this.
