But the dvd gets only 3 from me, so it averages out to a 4 star release. I was happy when I found out one of my favorite movies was coming out on dvd. A story about overcoming differences; the white female coaching the young, black, inner-city basketball team. There's tension in the beginning because they're unfamiliar with each other, but they learn to work together and end up finding success. Yeah, it may seem like something you've seen before, yeah it may be predictable. But so what? That doesn't mean it's not good. I think the movie did a good job of making the viewer care about and root for the characters, especially Fredro Starr's character, Shorty Dowop. He showed that ruffnecks could be sensitive and have feelings as well as forties. Basically, I love the movie, but the dvd is only in full screen, not wide screen. It would have been nice to have a choice. The only extras are trailers for Race The Sun, Higher Learning and Sunset Park. A music video, filmographies or commentary would have been nice as well, but Columbia/Tristar's low frills dvd treatment prevents me from giving it a perfect score.

Like I said, it's a cute little movie. I didn't think it stereotypical and I'm Black. It wasn't the usual "White person comes into the ghetto and saves the day". The Coach and the Kids all grew and helped each other. It's a fun feel good flick; enjoy it for what it's worth.

...Remembering the old school rap song by Kurtis Blow.
I have seen this movie for the first time on a tour bus.
...I got to have.
The characters are witty as they deal with the trials and tribulations surrounding high school basketball.
No dull moments...great script and acting.
Great early works of Terrance Howard and the supporting cast.

this movie was one of the better movies i've ever seen. as far as cute guys, great story-line, and talent go it's all that! i can't believe how ne1 could not like it. i think it sends a very positive message out about racial issues. and the movie also isn't mushy at all considering it's a drama. if u like or dis like basketball it doesn't matter because it's still a great movie no matter what! :)

And you have Sunset Park. It's all about a crappy sports team that makes it to the top by using teamwork. However, this one doesn't just tackle the crappy sports team aspect. It's definitely better in terms of either directing, acting, and everything, that involves Emilio Estevez in the role of a coach. There's a few life lessons to be learned, watching this movie, but they're all "Racism is bad, mmkay". If you're looking to buy anything Mighty Ducks related (at least, movie-wise), don't bother and pick up Sunset Park. It's better.

Rhea Perlman, a short white woman, is going to teach basketball to her towering Black high school students. And even though she knows nothing about hasketball she can still turn them into winners because she's White and sensitive and wants to be their "sistah." Gag me. This whole movie is completely insulting to people of all races. The director seems so sure he can sell a hip-hop basketball movie this bad to "those people" that he doesn't even bother to hide his apparent distaste for them. Avoid at all costs!
