The fun start to school break turns sour, when Monkey's cousin, Jason, comes to Beijing for the summer.

Dumb sports movie
18 May 2009 | by (Seoul, Korea) – See all my reviews

Seriously, this movie uses so many clichés from sports films like there's no tomorrow. The storyline is wholly impossible given that the three kids have minimal basketball skills and are completely overwhelmed by the other teams in the 3-3 tournament.

The team sucks so bad and then starts to get game right as the tournament picks up? I also have no idea why the Chinese American boy was put into the story -- he added little or nothing to the movie.

The viewer never gets to see who the main character really is and why he has a strained relationship with his father.

What a waste of about 93 minutes. I certainly do not recommend this movie to anyone.
