Shawn Wayans was considered for the role of Antoine Tyler. If he would have gotten the part, he would have portrayed his real life brother, Marlon. See more »

Danny Partridge! Dunk it!
Kenny, there's no way he can dunk it. He's just too small.
Shut up, Zigi! You're seven feet tall and you can't touch the rim!

University of Washington basketball player Kadeem Hardison dies suddenly of a heart attack, but comes back as a ghost that only brother/teammate Marlon Wayans can see to assist his team in going all the way to the NCAA National Championship. Another one of those fair films that is never really sure where it wants to go. An odd mixture of comedy and drama keep the production grounded throughout. The concept is tiring and unoriginal in the first place and the players found within are not given enough strong material to raise the mediocre parts to a strong whole. David Paymer and Michael Michele are part of the likable cast. "The Sixth Man" is not a bad bench warmer, but it has no business being in the starting lineup. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
