~ awesome flick promoting tolerance ~
27 August 2004 | by (brooklyn, nyc) – See all my reviews

This is an amazing movie based on the true story of Dr. Laz, the Lubavicher Jew who, along with an African American preacher, set out to promote tolerance by joining young Jews and African Americans together to create a basketball team and a rap group. I find it incredible that in the midst of the chaos and rage in the area after the Crown Heights disasters of Gavin Cato and Yankel Rosenberg's deaths, they found the strength and inspiration to plant these wonderful seeds of compassion. Howie Mandel does a fabulous and believable job of portraying Dr.Laz and Mario van Peebles does equally well in bringing to life a character who is actually based on two real-life people combined. I highly recommend this film for both its entertainment and educational value.
