You can't blame Crossover for being comfortable with its own clichés. It's so blatantly formulaic that it actually grows on you if you don't dismiss it in the first five minutes.

Crossover has one redeeming quality: a heart that's in the right place. It's a bad movie with a good message -- but does anyone really want to pay $10 for an ABC After School Special version of He Got Game?

A lot of Crossover's manifest failings could be forgiven if the on-court action was thrilling. But Space Jam had better basketball scenes. For that matter, so did Dr. J's The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh.

September 1, 2006
An amateurish hodgepodge of drama clichés and tired music video-style techniques, Crossover is a baldly contrived narrative.

Bling is bad and friends are good in this story of temptation, rivalry and buck-wild cheerleaders set in the world of Detroit street basketball.
September 1, 2006
The games and setting aren't gritty enough to let this urban sports drama crossover into something a general audience would care to see.

For a movie centered on a game without rules, Crossover is pretty formulaic.

I'll believe that Kevin Federline is a Renaissance man, Mel Gibson loves matzoh and George Pataki is going to be our next president before I'll believe the premise of this movie.

An inner-city drama promoting themes of friendship, loyalty and the value of a good education should be a welcome event, but writer-director Preston Whitmore's Crossover is so badly conceived and executed, its good intentions don't help.

Crossover has too much going for it. It has a wonderful message about making smart life choices, but the story shuffles among too many subjects -- sports, romance, friendship -- to let audiences hear it clearly.

Crossover could've used a little more sports action in place of some overwrought melodrama.

Cross Crossover off your list of movies to see.

Crossover expects moviegoers to ignore the inept script and acting and root for its characters anyway.

September 1, 2006
The would-be street hoopster characters of Crossover have plenty of flashy, original moves. Sadly, the movie itself has none.

Earnest and predictable, Crossover deserves more than the horselaughs that will probably greet it in theaters -- but not a lot more.

The only thing that makes the game streetball, as is explained by overexpository dialogue, is that strict rules aren't really enforced, and the players are allowed to travel. I know what you're thinking -- how is this different from the NBA?

The writing is unimaginative -- Tech says 'snap' more often than that elf from the cereal commercials.

September 1, 2006
The talky script, by the movie's director Preston A. Whitmore II, is delivered with all the flair of bad community theater.

Clunky, cliché-filled and embarrassingly melodramatic.

This is a neo-minstral show.
