Storyline

Biography of Chicago Bulls' basketball star Dennis Rodman, who is well known for his off-court and on-court shenanigans takes great effort to paint the calm, decent side of the athlete despite the film title. Dennis is shown to be pushed by his momma to play pro ball and to go to college where he would get the opportunity. Shipped to Oklahoma where he faces racism, he is taken in by a white family and coached by Lonn Reisman. The movie finally tracks Rodman into his wild, multi-haired current lifestyle.

Not as bad as the last comment Suggests
25 October 2004 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

Granted, this TV movie had some weak acting in a lot of scenes, but it's a made-for-TV movie so it's not going to have the greatest acting in the world. I love how the movie showed Rodman's early beginnings. Where in college basketball, he set scoring and rebounding records, and won titles for those categories. Not many people know that.

It also did show the softer side of Dennis Rodman, and in watching that movie you can see that anytime in an interview whenever his daughter Alexis is mentioned he breaks into tears. This movie showed a softer, gentler side of Dennis Rodman, a man whom is my personal hero.

Although books are always better than movies, this flick was amazing. Kudos.
