Rivals 'Hoosiers' as greatest basketball movie of all time!
22 January 2003 | by b_vanhaitsmaSee all my reviews

Sasquatch playing basketball - what more do you need? I literally fell on the floor laughing at several points. What is scary is that by the end of the movie it was perfectly acceptable that there is a seven foot sasquatch dancing with a 27 year-old (supposedly Middle School) at the Valentines dance. (And some claim that TV and movies aren't hardening our minds to such drival.) It is well worth a $1 rental (or purchase as the case may be). By the way the brief Star Wars clip was blasphemy against all things good about a movie.
