Storyline

Based on a true story of Hank Gathers, a basketball player from Loyola Marymount who collapsed and died during a game. Hank was a loudmouth Philly kid who was one of the best high school basketball players in the city. His rival comes in the form of Bo Kimble, a more serious athlete who doesn't care for Hank's reckless behavior. When the two players get recruited by USC, they eventually become friends. Hank and Bo are not really played much with the USC team, and head to Loyola Marymount, where the two became college sensations. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

AWFUL!
6 April 2004 | by jasonpalmer1See all my reviews

I finally saw this replaying on the USA channel during March Madness.

This is a good story but has got to be one of the worst movies ever made. Hank Gathers must be rolling in his grave!

The actor playing Hank is awful. I've seen better actors in junior high school plays. The way he plays Hank Gathers, you'd think that Hank was mentally challenged.

And the actor they get to play Bo Kimble looks like a bodybuilder, not a baskeball player.

Not to mention the 7 foot basketball rims that the actors have to jump 2 inches to dunk on.

But if you ever want a GOOD laugh at awful filmmaking, check out this movie!

You won't be able to turn away, it's like watching a train wreck!
