Jada Pinkett Smith,
In 1981 in L.A., Monica moves in next door to Quincy. They're 11, and both want to play in the NBA, just like Quincy's dad. Their love-hate relationship lasts into high school, with Monica's edge and Quincy's top-dog attitude separating them, except when Quincy's parents argue and he climbs through Monica's window to sleep on the floor. As high school ends, they come together as a couple, but within a year, with both of them playing ball at USC, Quincy's relationship with his father takes an ugly turn, and it leads to a break up with Monica. Some years later, their pro careers at a crossroads, they meet again. It's time for a final game of one-on-one with high stakes. Written by

This movies is mind- blowing, excellent,heart-rising and down to earth. The title of the movie really spoke for itself. Young kids growing up with loving each other and also loving basketball. I didn't know until this movie how basketball can impact of your life.It reminds me of me when i was little and was kind of like a tomboy but still had female feelings. There were a lot of different emotions spread without the film. Good? This movie was great and I even cried believing that they would be together at the end. It was like I was in the movie myself... Eyes glued to the T.V.
I love how the families even though there were bad times, they were always there for the their children. These days if a young person announced that she was pregnant, she would be thrown out the house.There was even a part that linked to having sex for the first time. I feel that is how it should be taking it slow and not just rushing into something because he says your cute or if you love me have sex with me.
The soundtrack of the movie was dominating and kept up with the story plot. Also the film includes a kind of unique visual style.The settings in this film make it to be a real life story.The dialogue spoken from the film is skilled and very well put together.
