Product Description

The clock strikes midnight, money changes hands, the crowd is on their feet, and the court is alive with fast-paced razzle-dazzle basketball. These players don't play for a school or a pro team. They play for the street and it's underground...way underground. Tech (Anthony Mackie, Freedomland, She Hate Me) and Cruise (Wesley Jonathan, Roll Bounce) are two best friends with mad streetballing skills. They light up the court with electrifying moves and spectacular dunks. But off the court their goals couldn't be more different. Tech dreams of going to the NBA and winning a streetball game against his conceited archrival Jewelz (Phillip "Hot Sauce" Champion). Cruise, with the natural talent to be an NBA star, wants to use his college basketball scholarship to become a doctor rather than give in to the lure of former sports agent Vaughn (Wayne Brady), who wants him to go pro. CROSSOVER is a story of friendship and getting crossed, where true warriors play be their own rules and have

Amazon.com

Marketing aside, Crossover is more concerned with off-court melodrama than on-court action. Tech (Anthony Mackie, Half Nelson) and Noah (Wesley Jonathan, Roll Bounce) are best friends and streetball stars. Their base of operations is the Detroit of 8 Mile and Four Brothers. Tech, who has a record, just wants to get his GED and make a decent living, while Noah plans to use his college scholarship to become a doctor. Their lives take a turn when Vaughn (Wayne Brady in a rare dramatic turn), a sports agent-turned-promoter, leans on Noah to defer his dream and turn pro. Vaughn pays his b-ball team to play, but that doesn't mean, of course, that he actually cares about his players. To him, it's business. Along the way, Tech gets involved with Eboni (promising newcomer Alecia Fears) and Noah with her social-climbing friend, Vanessa (America's Next Top Model Eva Pigford, who should probably stick with the catwalk), who used to go with their arch-rival Jewelz (real-life streetball player Phillip "Hot Sauce" Champion). Just as the movie questions whether the men's friendship is built to last, it questions whether their romantic entanglements are the real deal. Writer/director Preston A. Whitmore II shoots Crossover like a rap video. The post-production effects are flashy, but there isn't a lot of substance behind the style. Mackie and Jonathan, however, get the job done. The film may be formulaic, but their natural charisma makes it worth watching. Just be forewarned that there isn't much roundball playing going on here. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I've watched a lot of street ball but I never played "street ball", so I could be totally off base with some of my comments, but I'm pretty sure there is not a huge gambling ring which focuses on this sport. In Crossover, the underground street ball games take place in an abandoned train station, where fouls and show stopping are not only allowed, it's encouraged. These "secret games" have a somewhat decent crowd of spectators, which includes a full cheerleading squad and a DJ who spins records in between plays.

It's actually quite a shame that a good movie has not been made on the subject of underground street basketball. At least not in the last 10 years, as Ron Shelton's 1992 film "White Men Can't Jump" may be the only exception. This is one of those predictable movies where you can spot the payoffs before the script even plants the set up. Noah Cruise (played by Wesley Jonathan) is a hard working student who is banking on a basketball scholarship so that he can study medicine in college. But he's sucked into playing in the underground league by his best friend Tech (played by Anthony Mackie), who he somehow owes big time. If Cruise is caught playing for such a league, he could loose his college scholarship. Wayne Brady plays a former NBA agent named Vaughn, the rebel ruler of the underground street ball circuit. He tries his best to put on his "serious face" but it just comes off as laughable. Brady might be good at the improve stuff, a script must feel like imprisonment. At least that's how it comes off. Vaughn wants Cruise on his roster, but the kid has other plans. Cruise and Tech become involved with two young ladies who work at the mall. Young love blossoms and news of Cruise's involvement with the underground sport leaks to the press and so forth.

This was a great movie! It tells the truth of how a basketball player can go pro and have a hard time fitting in with all the pressure out there. Very good movie!

I did not know that "Crossover" held the "bottom" spot on the International Movie Data Base's list of "Bottom 100" movies of all-time when I watched it this week. As of this writing (and I am sure things will change) it has a rating of 1.2, which means it has quite a gap between it and "The Hillz," the next film on the list. Rounding out the current Bottom 10 are "Bottoms Up," "Going Overboard," "From Justin to Kelly," "SuperBabies: Baby Geniuses 2," "Santa with Muscles," "Car 54, Where Are You?", "Chairman of the Board," and "Love in Paris." I have not seen all of these, but my vote for the bottom most rung still goes to "Manos: Hands of Fate." That particular former holder of the bottom spot is currently ranked #11, and the fact it is not in the Bottom 10 is a clear sign that there are problems with voting on such things. But even given that a lot of what is here is ludicrous, why "Crossover" deserves this particular dishonor seems a bit harsh.

A "crossover" is a dribble move in basketball where the player with the ball switches it quickly from one hand to the other. You have the normal crossover, the killer crossover, and the double crossover. I think all three of those show up in this movie, but the importance of the title is as a metaphor for the situation of the protagonists. In Detroit we have "Tech" (Anthony Mackie) and "Cruise" (Wesley Jonathan), teammates on the Enemy of the State streetball team. The key things about streetball are that as long as you score with style and avoid flagrant fouls or gang fights, you can get away with as many steps to the basket as you want to take (the whole idea of not needing any stinkin' rules apparently has great appeal on the street, although the net result is not as much fun as slamball).

I love the edge to this movie. It's not over the top. Just enough to keep it interesting, but still be PG. Surprisingly good acting skills demonstrated by Wayne Brady.
