Samuel L Jackson is his usual commanding self in the lead role, although his seemingly endless array of shouty speeches about attitude and commitment begin to grate after two hours. Equally, although this is an inspirational genre pic that pushes all the requisite buttons throughout, you can’t help but feel that rather than benching the team, director Thomas Carter should have benched a few of those ham-fisted sporting clichés instead.

I want to give 4 stars because the film is not only about the basketball as wall about the concentrate on studies. Great story, but may be appropriate for younger children to think that education is very important to build up your future.
This is Dangerous Minds for Basketball! Excellent true story and a must see as the underdogs go through the mill!
