Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson) and Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes) are an unlikely pair of basketball hustlers. They team up to con their way across the courts of Los Angeles, playing a game that's fast dangerous - and funny. Directed and written by Ron Shelton ("Bull Durham"), and co-starring the sizzling Rosie Perez, "White Men Can't Jump" is a slam dunk, high-flying comedy hit!

White Men Can't Jump is a movie about basketball hustlers but the characters are multifaceted and this movie focuses on their reasons for hustling rather than the hustle itself. Sidney(Snipes) hustles as a means to get his family out of the ghetto. He is driven by an undying sense of family and a desire to be the provider that his family is looking for. Billy(Harrelson) hustles out of an addiction to gambling and also a desire to show his girlfriend(Rosie Perez) that he is becoming more responsible with money. The basketball in this movie is realistic as is the language and behaviors of the players. The real story; however, is one of loyalty, betrayal and eventually friendship. This is a smart and funny movie that transcends the "sports movie" genre.

Ron Shelton hasn't made that many movies; the last one he wrote *and* directed was 2003's "Hollywood Homicide" (ouch). But he's given us a trio of sports masterpieces: "Bull Durham" (baseball), "Tin Cup" (golf -- and yeah, it's a masterpiece, shut up), and this one. Given the movie's rather startling title, we should probably get the race angle out of the way first. It was released in March 1992, one month before the L.A. Riots that were prompted by the acquittal of 4 LAPD officers who nearly beat Rodney King to death. In other words, the incremental rapprochement between the races that this movie portrays turned out to be wishful thinking. Spike Lee was closer to the reality with his "Do the Right Thing", released a few years earlier.

Fine. But Hollywood is at its best, I feel, when it can show us a better vision than the depressing realities of our society, especially when it doesn't preach at us. Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson engage in racial discussion, but it ain't no brotherhood-of-man crap, you know, the crap that wins Oscars. Instead, these guys use their differing ethnicity as fodder for more smack talk, a sport at which they compete as fiercely as basketball. The brotherhood has already been forged on the court, and if you prove yourself on the court, you've earned the right to give as well as take. In fact, this is the hidden foundation of sports, from the ancient Greek Olympic games up to today: sublimated war; entente; finally, friendship. If only all differences in our world could be settled on the field of play, where the male virtues shine the brightest.

Still not enough though, boys: we need women to give us something to strive for, like moving out of the Vista View apartments where there's no vista and no view.

Great movie! I love the dynamic of Snipes and Harrelson. Wildcats, Money Train, you name it and they just mesh well together. Brothers from another mother, no doubt. Football, basketball... these dudes were definitely jocks. Snipes also had his martial arts background to help in his athletic endeavors. Not only a good actor but a gifted athlete as well. Woody showed he could ball in both his acting and athletic skills. I was in high school when the movie came out. I remember going to the theaters to see it. Correction, I was 16 and you had to be at least 17 to watch it. Couldn't get an adult to go with me. The lady carded me and I had no ID. Wouldn't have mattered anyway. I was so bummed. Didn't see it till it came on video. Loved it! Mostly the trash talkin and ballin scenes were the most memorable. My friends and I were always quoting it. Plus, I always felt like shooting hoops after watching it. Entertaining and funny. Put on your high tops and ball!!

I really enjoyed this movie. I had it on VHS, DVD and now I own it on Blueray. I had to elevate my level of viewing experience through Blueray. Harrelson and Snipes made a fantastic team and they should collaborate again. By the way, Harrelson is a much better basketball player than snipes.

If you like basketball at all, you're going to love this movie. If you like to make fun of your friends, you're going to love this movie. Witty comedy that doesn't offend (that's hard to come by these days).
Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson) is a street-wise basketball player with something to prove. He heads to Venice Beach to hustle big-time players for money. Hoyle bites off more than he can chew when he meets up with Sydney Dean (Wesley Snipes) and becomes the victim of a hustle himself. However, Dean and Hoyle can't deny the bond of friendship between them, no matter how hard they try. When Billy loses his girlfriend because he loses all of their money and Dean's home is robbed they turn to each other for the solution...the ultimate pick-up game vs the legends: Eddie "The King" Farooq and "Duck" Johnson. $2500 to play, winner take all. Do they win? Well, as Gloria would tell you, "Sometimes when you win, you really lose. Sometimes when you lose, you really win. And sometimes when you win or lose you actually tie. And sometimes when you tie, you actually win or lose." Yeah, it's confusing. But that's the way it ends.
Classic comedy.

Where to begin, these guys were made for this role. The movie has great continuity with all the elements of a classic, great supporting actors, believable details. In most cases I'd rather watch an actual ball game than a movie about it. This 1 trumps the ball game, it's a movie about life, and it doesn't hurt that the basketball seems believable...FIVE STARS
