The phoniest basketball game ever?
13 February 2004 | by (Farragut, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Auggh! Totally unconvincing depiction of a basketball game. So many childish errors that credibility is continually punctured. Even the antics of the onlookers are poorly acted - nothing looks goofier than poorly staged pictures of people cheering and reacting in an unconvincing manner.

And I am the only one who thought the Jewish miracle message was a bit heavy-handed given the trivial nature of the b-ball contest? I do applaud the attention and dignity that the script gives to the Jewish faith, though

  • the movie has noble intentions.




Movies get much, much better than this. I gave it 4/10.
