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.Read more ›
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.
