In the Fresno State game, there are several shots of the players taken from the ground level. The ceiling above is that of the old Hec-Edmunson Pavilion at the University of Washington. At one point you can even read the name Huskies on the scoreboard signs. Then as the game progresses, the ceiling is shown again, and it is that of the arena in California. See more »

Watch it, Love it, Watch it again, Absolutely Adore it!
12 November 2006 | by the_moody_youngestSee all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movies. I saw it for the first time a couple years ago and I was laughing non stop! Marlon Wayons is an excellent actor and there is no way I could hate him. (Mumbles to myself) Except in Little Man. Yes I hated Little Man but this movie was an underrated winner. I loved the comedic breaks in this film and the dramatic pieces. All though I saw it a while ago, it comes on the Family Channel a lot so I stay up and watch it when it does. I was watching it last night just eating my chips when my dad came in. He started to watch it and didn't understand it. I explained the beginning to him and we kept watching. As the movie went on, me and my dad were laughing with each other and the great comedy in this. The dramatic parts were truly touching. The story was original and the movie stuck to the plot instead of going elsewhere into something totally different. Enjoy this film. It is really funny, entertaining, interesting, and original.
