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. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

It's just as bad as it could be
14 January 1999 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I am a great NBA fan, and I was expecting a lot of the movie about the life of the most controversial player of NBA... But unfortunately, all the movie is worried to show us is "how cool is Dennis Rodman!!!". And I just kept asking myself: is he that cool? I guess not! As a documentary I haven't seen almost none value, and what comes down to entertainment this movie also failed...
