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 released in 1996 that starred Damon Wayans as a star athlete and essential to the film's plot. The other was The Great White Hype in which he co-starred with Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson and Jaime Foxx, playing the boxing Heavyweight Champion of the World James "The Grim Reaper" Roper who fights a former Golden Gloves Champion "Irish" Terry Conklin played by future Director Peter Berg.

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.

...I toasted it just the way you like.
How'd you do that? There's no toaster around here.
I used my curling iron.

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 »
