Critic Reviews for Fast Break
As do some of our most popular standup comedians, Mr. Kaplan sort of floats over his material, always in charge of it, but never deeply involved. This is not a rebuke.
We've seen this formula so many times before that there can be no surprises, except for some small suspense about when the foreordained events will take place.
Totally implausible (though surely not meant to be taken seriously), highly predictable, and not particularly funny.
A hugely likable basketball comedy. Gabe Kaplan is so appealing here that you wonder why he didn't become a bigger star.
