Three men, three dreams. It's 1976 in Flint, Michigan. Jackie Moon's American Basketball Association team languishes in last place, with few fans in the seats. Jackie dreams of a merger with the NBA. A tough-minded point guard named Monix is at the end of his career; he's played on the champion Celtics but accepts a trade to Flint to be close to Lynn, the love of his life. Clarence "Coffee" Brown dreams of stardom: he's the Tropics' best player, but he's a hotdog who doesn't value teamwork. When the trio learns that a merger is in the works that won't include the Tropics, they pull the team together to try to achieve the impossible. Can dreams come true in Flint?Written by

In the beginning, announcer Dick Pepperfield says "That little kid from the Jackson 5, he scares me too. Oh mark my words, Lou, there is something creepy about that young man." He may have been referring to Randy Jackson, the youngest (14 or 15), shortest, and only child member of The Jacksons. The Jackson 5 disbanded in 1975, and reformed as The Jacksons in 1976. Youngest sibling Randy replaced Jermaine Jackson, who left for a solo career. In 1976, Michael Jackson, the lead singer and second youngest sibling (17 or 18) was the lead singer of The Jacksons.

I really can't stand the site of Will Farrell, and I usually find him anything but funny. I hated Ron Burgundy and thought Elf was trite, but i have to say I pretty much laughed my way throughout this entire movie.
It was made as a comedy, which it excels at being, but it is also a really good period piece on the 70's (love the fro's). The story was also really good, a bit predictable but well done - I found myself caring about the characters and the out come of the story.
I was entertained throughout this entire movie, and i would add this movie amongst other American comedy classics such as Family Vacation, Uncle Buck or even Planes, Trains and Automobiles... all very different movies, but ones that made us laugh and kept us smiling.
