Storyline

Tough Coach Duke Goulding leaves nothing untried to lead his almost exclusively white boarding school basketball team, the Hawks, to victory after victory, but his own son Hugo feels his polyvalent technical excellence and tireless efforts -which require using stimulants- are not getting anything like the recognition he deserves, especially when coach gives the best player award to Odin James, the only black teammate, even saying he loves Odin like his own son, who in turn only calls super-rich Michael Cassio to share in the honor. So Hugo, who is liked by everyone, decides to set up the boys who stole his glory, and he knows a cocky adolescent's weak points are his pride and his girl. This Dixie Jago schemes to bring down a black Othello and his Cassio, playing into the poisonous power of jealousy, however badly this also hurts their loved ones and the whole team...

Uhh... was that supposed to be sad at the ending? Or were we allowed to laugh? Because I did.
24 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

A little advice to the director, STOP WITH THE SOAP OPERA!!! I know that Shakespeare stories are very sad and depressing but for God's sake! It was so over dramatic. You don't feel for the characters. You think that two of the main characters are asses. And you think that the girl is very insincere. The ending isn't sad, because (I hate to say this about Josh Hartnett, sorry Josh!) but BAD ACTING!!! Even though I'm a fan of Josh Hartnett and saw this movie because he was in it, I just thought this was a bad pick. And maybe O should of concentrated on getting things straight with his girl then getting even. Especially when he hasn't asked other friends and seeing if she was cheating or suspected of it. So, I believe that Shakespeare is not going to be proud. Good luck to Mekhi, Josh, and Julia. Because I know you could do better.

4/10
