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>

Read the book
3 October 1999 | by (Perth, West Australia) – See all my reviews

I read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I struggled through the movie.

Did anyone else think that Rodman's mum had more than a passing resemblance to Steve Erkel? That dorky guy in that American comedy a few years ago???

The worst part was that the movie didn't even portray Rodman correctly. I know he doesn't do a spin move with such grace now, so why should he have been doing them back in College???

And to think I was going to get out Hoosiers and watch it again... :(
