When a rap mogul from Atlanta tries to join a conservative country club in the Carolinas he runs into fierce opposition from the board President- but it's nothing that he and his entourage can't handle.
Nate moves to L.A. to track down Cristabel, the woman he's been in love with since childhood, only to discover that his plan to woo her only has one hurdle to overcome: what to do with June, Cristabel's ever-present, not-so-hot best friend? What's even more complicating is Nate's growing feelings for June, whose true beauty starts to emerge.

A naturally talented basketball player, Noah Cruise is determined to become a doctor using his basketball scholarship to UCLA pre-med, rather than succumb to the lure of former sports agent Vaughn and go for the NBA. His best friend, the buddy that took the fall for him and did the time for an assault charge, Tech, also an outstanding basketball player, has less lofty ambitions: he wants to get his GED and win an underground street ball game against his arrogant rival, Jewelz. Their lives change drastically when they both fall in love with two local girls, Vanessa Lilly and Eboni Jackson, and take fateful trip out to L.A. together. Written by
Holy crap, I can't believe this movie even made it to theaters!
This movie was easily the absolute worst movie I have seen in a long, long time. Wayne Brady, what are you doing? You are funny! I saw you on "Who's Line"! Why are you in this piece of crap movie? Seriously, I'm going to be objective here. The directing was cheesy and predictable, with stupid-looking segways of quickly blurring images of cheaply decorated sets. The production budget on this one was desperately trying to look much more expensive, which it failed at miserably. The lighting, make-up, and costumes all look as if I could have funded them myself. The overall look and quality of the film resembled that of a mid-80's Egyptian soap opera dubbed into French. (Either that or the Golden Girls.) Granted, the moves displayed by these self-proclaimed "street ballers" were quite impressive, but it comes of as an insult to the audience. It's as if the people who approved and funded the making of this movie said to themselves, "All we have to do is put a few shots of street balling and it doesn't matter how cheap we make the rest of the movie because it has a built in audience." Heres some advice, invest in a good writer, better casting, better directing, and production and maybe you'll begin to have a movie that borders on "not-awful." I couldn't stop laughing at how bad this movie was. I'm ashamed to have spent my hard earned $8.25 on this sad excuse for a major motion picture.
