a goofy, goofy movie
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this was one of the most idiotic movie I have seen in quite some time. My brothers friend picked this up at the local Movie Gallery where he was working and brought it over one night. I was bored and didn't mind watching a "bad" movie as they put it. I didn't know how bad it was; terrible acting, terrible script, terrible everything. From the first 3 minutes of this debacle I knew that this garbage was one of a kind... the basic "story" of this movie is that there is this great basketball player that gets befriended by some drug dealer/murderer/David Bowie look a like and his coach tries to stop this before its too late. Terrible from start to finish. There are some truly retarded scenes and some truly bad lines from these so called actors, when you see them and hear the lines you will know what I am talking about. Its actually a good way to waste time... thats... thats about it.
