Storyline

A group of guys, born working-class around 1949, grow up friends playing basketball at the Second Street Park in Brooklyn. Through contemporary interviews and archival footage, they look back on their growing up. Teen camaraderie gives way to seeking personal fulfillment and, in the 1960s and 70s, drug use. As young adults, several make a trip across the U.S.; one finds happiness in rural, upstate New York. One fights in Vietnam. One is murdered in 1975, probably over drugs. A few become professionals. By 2000, at least two have lost a child, there's rue and regret, and there's the enjoyment of returning to the basketball court at the park for a reunion game. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Humdrum
16 December 2008 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Nothing terribly watch worthy or notable here....and, as a matter of fact, rather boring. Nothing out of the ordinary from many, many other young men who grew up in similar neighborhoods and who had similar experiences. Trite and hard to watch. Repetitive and really humdrum. Similar situations; similar plots. The men seem to all blend together into one boring person and come together at the end of this so called documentary at the park for a geriatric game of basketball, huffing and puffing away. Sad occurrence of one friend who either was murdered in a drug bust or who killed himself. Boring. Whoever hatched this idea together should have selected men, at least, who have dissimilar backgrounds. Then, it may be more interesting. A glimpse into time gone by, but good bye is more like it.
