This sounds like a sensational scenario, but, alas, almost everything in betweenis recycled out of lightweight sports-movie cliches, and the movie never captures the electricity and excitement of the real NBA.
Even cameos from such NYC luminaries as Ed Koch, Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump, Sirajul & Mujibar, and appearances from NBA legends Walt Frazier, Rodman, the Spurs, Kings, and Pacers can't save this foul dog. And no Billy Barty, to boot.
If the people responsible for Eddie were trying to make a statement about greed in professional sports with this laughless comedy, they didn't just miss the shot -- they missed the rim, net and backboard completely.
Eddie certainly would have been a mess without Goldberg to add an unexpected feminine view. It probably would have been a failure, too because she's the only thing drawing women to this sports picture.
