A great movie
23 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I loved this movie. It's so tightly focused on the emotional heart of this family, and it stays zeroed in right on that. It doesn't spend time detailing everything that's happening, whether it regards agents, sneakers, or NBA wheeling and dealing. Sure, all that stuff is going on, and it does get mentioned (particularly the sneaker stuff) but it's not nearly as interesting as the emotional ups and downs of the family as they try to succeed where they had their hearts broken once before. And it's important to remember that this isn't an ESPN movie - they just bought it after it was done. People seem to think there were all sorts of cynical motives at work in the making and releasing of this film, but it was just a small independent production (with a crew of two, according to the director's commentary) about a local kid and the amazing year he had. How he's doing in the league now really is not the point. The dream is to make it there, and that's what matters for this movie. If you take it for what it is, and don't obsess over what's not in it, it's an incredible, emotional experience.
