Story of a promising high school basketball star and his relationships with two brothers, one a drug dealer and the other a former basketball star fallen on hard times and now employed as a security guard.
Antoine and Kenny Tyler are NCAA college basketball players, and Antoine is the star of the team. Suddenly Antoine dies of a heart attack and Kenny has to fill his shoes as leader of the team. Some time later, Antoine returns as a ghost and helps Kenny in game and in life, but Kenny changes in the process and doesn't quite like it.
Though they didn't share scenes, Harold Sylvester portrays Marlon Wayans and Kadeem Hardison's father in the beginning of the film. Harold Sylvester also played Kadeem Hardison's father in the NBC sitcom A Different World. See more »
In the first Huskie game, a commentator says that the team hasn't won the Pac-10 since 1985. In the second game, another one says that the team hasn't clinched a tournament berth since 1984. Following standard NCAA rules, this cannot be true since a conference winner has an automatic tournament berth. See more »
This movie is excellent. It is hilarious and has great drama. Kadeem Hardison and Marlon are just as convincing as brothers as Marlon is with his real life brother Shawn on "The Wayans Bros." The acting was great, the comedy was great, and the writing was great. This is the film that made me look at Marlon Wayans as more than just a funny guy, but also as a very talented actor. I give this movie a 10.
