Dennis Buckstead has the hardest calling in his church. Not only has he been asked to coach a group of non-basketball players in his church but the bishop has demanded that he lead the team to the Basketball Championship. Word from the top is that this is the last season of church ball and Bishop Linderman isn't about to have his team lose for the 20th year in a row in the last season of church ball history! What was supposed to strengthen the body, invigorate the mind and cultivate brotherly love seems to bring out the worst in these church-going ball players. Dennis must find a way to bring his team together and build unity along the way to win the championship or go down in church ball history as the worst team that ever played. Written by
Well done, creative, good casting, not as annoying cliché as I thought it would be. Something everyone can relate to whether you played church ball or not. Gary Coleman's surprise participation was hilarious. I fully expected to hate it, but for it's industry, I was impressed. Loved the cameos. How did they get these big names for a dinky movie like this? I especially liked how it was obviously a spoof on the Mormon take of it, and took place in a Mormon church, etc., but was done in a way that all religions (or non religious- just anyone that has played basketball) can relate to. Realistically emphasized that even those who strive to live a good live are human with weaknesses, and slip up from time to time, and we can have fun with that. The moral was laid in creatively, subtly, tactfully, and humorously.
