The National Basketball Association play-offs are taking place, and the Boston Celtics are facing the Utah Jazz in a crucial series. This is also the last year that any games will be played in the Boston Garden, which is going to be torn down after the end of the season. Mike and Jimmy, two die-hard sports fans who will risk anything for the Celtics to win, are really getting into the games. The Celtics would be a sure win if it weren't for Lewis Scott, the cocky, loud-mouth star of the Jazz. After Scott himself punishes the Celtics in a bad loss, Mike and Jimmy decide to take things into their own hands by kidnapping Scott and holding him until after the crucial game takes place.Written by
One of two films involving an obsession with a sports megastar or a team released in 1996. The other was The Fan which would be released by Tri-Star Pictures in August starring Wesley Snipes and Robert DeNiro, with DeNiro obsessed with Snipes' star baseball slugger and the San Francisco Giants baseball team.

After badly spraining his right ankle in the one-on-one game with Lewis, Mike goes to see his wife and can barely walk up the stairs. In a subsequent shot while they are all at the dinner table, a long shot shows Mike vividly bouncing his right leg on the ball of his foot showing no signs of the injury, impossible to do without immense pain.

After the credits, the Boston Garden is demolished. (This is a special effect; at the time the movie was released, the real Garden was still standing.) See more »
1st, everyone keeps dissing the Celtic Pride film. I think the movie was a 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I am a Boston fan but still look at it as if i weren't. What other team has made a movie? Not one, celtics are legendary for there championships over the years. Anyhow Damon Waynes, a (very good actor) did keep the movie funny with his rude comments, and Dan Akyroid and Daniel Stern(very good actors) did there part to play the role of washed up, lazy, full time sports fans dedicated to the game. The movie however no one wanted to see which makes me ponder would people wanna see it if the movie was about another team. My friend made fun of it, but then accually watched it and said "that movies wasn't bad at all" he laughed so many times. Its a good comedy, give the movie a chance, don't hate... on something great... I give my love to the director, he took a chance, i think he did the best he could for this movie.
