A deafness-inducing but otherwise ho-hum would-be expose of shady recruiting practices by college basketball programs.

Not even an unsentimental basketball fan like director William Friedkin can wash away all the corn syrup.

If it wasn't for some exciting roundball action, Shaquille O'Neal's hulking-dunking presence and a wonderfully guttural performance from coach Nick Nolte, you'd slither off the bench asleep.

It is a very homogenized movie that never offends, yet never seems to be for real either.

The filmmakers don't get the ball into the Shaq-man's hands enough -- both literally and figuratively -- to make this personable giant's screen debut memorable.

Much of the movie's problem, I suspect, comes from the vast use of non-professionals in dramatic roles, whose charismatic abilities should be restricted to the basketball court and not the dramatic arena.

The on-court action is fairly bland, and photographed from all the wrong angles.

A good concept fails to become a good movie in this predictable tale of corruption in college basketball.

Watching various hoop stars and legends trying to act is cringeworthy, O'Neal particularly bad, but Friedkin's movie, written by sports film specialist Shelton has a lot of passion.

What Friedkin brings to the story is a tone that feels completely accurate; the movie is a morality play, told in the realistic, sometimes cynical terms of modern high-pressure college sports.

A rare example of an entry into this genre that attempts to be honest and unique.
