Sunset Park, what crap is this?
16 February 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK get past the ludicrous idea of Carla Tortelli as an inner city basketball coach who knows nothing about basketball and you still have a unbelievably poor cliche ridden sports movie that is probably the worst I have ever scene. Rhea should thank her lucky stars that her husband has enough money to produce bombs such as this. Do yourself a favor, don't waste the 99 minutes of your life that it would take to view this film.
