What to know

critics consensus

Whoopi Goldberg may demonstrate that she can coach a basketball team with the best of them, but not even she can whip this dreary script into shape. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Chauffeur Edwina "Eddie" Franklin (Whoopi Goldberg) is fanatical about the New York Knicks basketball team. After she wins a contest to be their honorary assistant coach, Eddie so impresses the team's owner (Frank Langella) that he fires the head coach, John Bailey (Dennis Farina), and replaces him with Eddie. She is instrumental in turning the floundering team around, just in time to make the playoffs. There, they will face the Charlotte Hornets -- now led by former Knicks coach Bailey.

    Whoopi is hilarious, and has got real-life Knicks fans thinking 'Why couldnt this happen in real-life?'

    A Pretty good Sports-Comedy. I enjoyed it alot. Not too funny, Not to unfunny. The Knciks as actually portrayed, are losing in the NBA, and Whoopie Goldberg Fanatic Knick's Fan, Gets to coach the Knicks, and Might actually get them into the playoffs.

    Trying to add bounce to her well worn flounce, Whoopi's the eponymous, mouthy basketball fan who's caught up in the machinations of rhinestone cowboy Wild Bill (Langella). Bill has been brought in to save New York's ailing basketball team, the Knicks, and plucks Eddie from the crowd to act as a rinky-dink mascot coach. But she's the real thing - grabs a'hold of those NBA boys, shakes 'em up and you can guess the rest. They're all present and correct, the elements of a Goldberg vehicle we've come to know and dread. What saves the film from abomination is the basketball. It may not look good (TV values reign), but the floor pounding games are edited to create real rushes of glee. The NBA stars, too, are superb, particularly real-life hoop-dreamer Sealy as arrogant golden boy Stacy Patton.
