Goofs

L.B states that Brenda is a product of his father's old ways, long before he married the mother of Leroy, Vera and himself. However, this would make Brenda older than the three of them, and it is clearly obvious (and also stated) that Brenda is the youngest of them all. See more »

Harry: You don't get it, do you?
Brenda Brown: Get what?

Brenda Brown: Love me?
Harry: Yeah. Tell Mike I said congratulations.

Very touching story, deserves a better rating.
9 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie does not deserve the rating it has. Any more I can't go by the ratings here on IMDb because I must have a different taste in movies than everyone else. The acting in this was a toss up. Some of the actors/actresses were , imo, not very good. Angela Basset was terrific as well as Rick Fox. The Leroy Brown character was funny at first and then he just got annoying. Same goes for Vera. The story line was very good and very touching. I'm sure there is a lot of single parents, not just mothers, out there that have felt or do feel the same as Brenda does. I don't want to go in to the movie that much because I don't want to spoil it, but Brenda is a single mother that is struggling with money and finds out that her father that she never knew had died. She takes her kids to GA for the funeral and meets family she never knew she had. In the will he leaves a house for her that needs some TLC. Since she doesn't Have the money her new Family helps restore it without her knowing. Some of the previews may be misleading. It is not completely about basketball although it has some in it. It is a very touching story and I recommend it ton anyone. But like i said. Everyone has their own opinions on movies.
