Working a bit too hard to send the crowd into a frenzy, the action in this basketball-oriented yarn isn't exactly fantastic, but it is mildly entertaining.
Give or take the odd spot of predictable arrogance, however, it's a good-humoured, good-hearted film.
Children may find this funny, but the film isn't geared to very young audiences. It includes much more violence and profanity than its PG rating indicates.
Like the multitude of Disney visitors to Africa before (and after) him, he must learn to respect the noble savages he wishes to exploit. Saleh and his Winabis are not for sale -- at least, not immediately.
Neither Max Apple's script nor Paul M. Glaser's direction succeeds in convincing you that these characters live, or that this story has anything to do with any thing.
A lightweight, brainless family movie chronicling the triumph of the underdog.
Wonderful sports comedy full of inspiring moments and exciting basketball action.
Not nearly as bad as you think.
Entirely predictable basketball comedy. Bacon gives better than the flick really deserves.
If you've never seen a movie, you may be surprised as the story goes into two specific directions, the big basketball game finale and the change in Bacon's attitude as he learns there are things more important in life than his own success.
