Storyline

Biography of Chicago Bulls' basketball star Dennis Rodman, who is well known for his off-court and on-court shenanigans takes great effort to paint the calm, decent side of the athlete despite the film title. Dennis is shown to be pushed by his momma to play pro ball and to go to college where he would get the opportunity. Shipped to Oklahoma where he faces racism, he is taken in by a white family and coached by Lonn Reisman. The movie finally tracks Rodman into his wild, multi-haired current lifestyle. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

As bad as TV can be.
21 October 2002 | by mackles73See all my reviews

This movie was as predictable as a Big Mac at McDonalds. Continuity was neither a priority nor an issue. The actors were second rate, not to mention it's poor exuse for a story, that just can't quite get it right in terms of translating book to film. Bombs AWAY!
