Longshot will have its fans among those who like tales of amour
3 May 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Teenager Alex is shunned at school, a surprise since he is quite good looking. Maybe not making a crucial shot at the last basketball game was a factor. His guardian, older brother Jack, has no problems with the ladies. That is, until his 'personal fitness' career gets personal with the wrong female. Now, organized crime may want his scalp, if Jack doesn't do the mob tango and court beautiful Rachel (Hunter Tylo) to ascertain business secrets. Will Alex be in danger? Is there no way out for all parties? Tylo is one of the most beautiful ladies on the planet. If you agree and you love romantic tales, then you must must this film. Jack is quite an eyeful as well and Alex will probably make the younger female crowd go into rhapsodies, too. The plot is a bit silly but the triumph of the underdog is always a welcome storyline. There are those movie fans who will continually fight the good fight of finding another tale of kisses and happy endings. If you are one of these, keep your eyes peeled for this one at the video store or library.
