There are dumb movies and then there is Crossover, a movie so devoid of logic it will leave you astounded.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.

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

It shoots. And it shoots and shoots and shoots, but it never scores.

Crossover comes with more swooshing/zapping/whamming sound effects than a year's worth of The O'Reilly Factor.

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?

Despite a superb cast, Crossover dribbles slowly, with not nearly enough time on the basketball court.

April 23, 2009
Even though the plot forgoes the formulaic slam-dunk, hackneyed devices, low production values, and the stilted direction (by Preston A. Whitmore II) dribble the ball off the shoe and out of bounds.

The chances of it actually 'crossing over' are nil.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
September 5, 2006
I hated this movie. It's a piece of junk.

You could watch Crossover, or you could check out the Salvation Army gift shop to see what inspirational bumper stickers they're peddling.

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.

August 28, 2006
Just as streetball is a pale version of college or NBA basketball, so too is Crossover a pathetic imitation of an emotionally engaging, professionally made movie.

September 1, 2006
The entire film is just so over-the-top, feeling more like an After School Special than a serious inner-city drama.

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.

Wayne Brady, even at his most intimidating, is about as threatening as a basket full of kittens.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 30, 2006
A couple of dramatic plot points come and go with the speed of a buzzer-beating shot. And like the style of play the film glorifies, it's all flash and no fundamentals.
September 1, 2006
Much as they would like it to, basketball can't save the youthful inner-city players here. Nor does the ultra-fast-paced street version of the sport save this movie from predictability and tedium.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 31, 2006
Crossover is not just awful, it's gloriously, stupendously, magnificently awful. And best of all, it has Wayne Brady as the bad guy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 2, 2006
Crossover's got game, not to mention the best of intentions. But it's too clunky by half.
Full Review | Original Score: C
