Revenge of the Nerds minus laughs plus inspirational music equals Quantum Hoops.

Couldn't the film have told the story of a single season or explored what it means for a team of genius scientists and math whizzes not to crack the code of their failure? We get glimpses and glosses but never a story.

Scratching your head because you don't know why David Duchovny provides narration for Rick Greenwald's Quantum Hoops? Hint: the truth is out there.

A pleasurable feature film that can't help but fall in love with these perennial losers...narrated with wonderful highball sincerity by David Duchovny.

Cal Tech basketball team's story is subject of Rick Greenwald's captivatingly quirky Quantum Hoops, a film that's as smart as its subjects--the team of smart players who continue to push their game although they consistently lose.

David Duchovny narrates this inspirational account of Caltech's 2006 basketball season (yes, the school has a team, and at the time of filming, the squad had not won in 21 years).

Although Greenwald has made a fairly lighthearted film, replete with playful graphics and humorous digressions, it does prompt some serious reflection on what college sports are really all about.

I'm not a basketball fan in the slightest, but I will admit to being wrapped up in the tension of this incredibly rousing finale. After watching this inspiring documentary, I'm sure you'll feel the same way.

The Caltech Beavers are a surprisingly charming group of overachievers who prove to have as much heart on the court as they do brains in the classroom.

These teams may be genuinely awful, or simply overmatched, but [director]Greenwald honors them, their brainy players and their Job-like coaches alike.

While it may not be the most absorbing subject for a feature documentary, the hoop dreams of a brainiac team that wants to win just once does make for an amusing diversion, especially with another season of college-bracket fever upon us.
