The next hour or so is filled with the Knicks committing turnovers, until a player tells Eddie they'll keep losing until she takes an interest in their personal lives. Wow!

A blessedly obscure little movie that you won't be finding on Whoopi's career highlights reel.

What saves the film from abomination is the basketball.

The basketball stuff is, as expected, well choreographed and shot.

Whoopi Goldberg se esforça ao máximo para prender a atenção do espectador, mas o roteiro (escrito por seis pessoas!) anula suas tentativas com uma história previsível e repleta de clichês.

Whoopi Goldberg becomes the coach of the Knicks in this silly and utterly harmless sports comedy. Too bad it just isn't funny.

One of those Whoopi Goldberg movies that makes you wonder about her career sense

It's a fresh, funny, engaging picture that sets up an arresting situation and then follows through on it realistically.

Ms. Goldberg has everything it takes -- terrific lungs, endless wisecracks, that ear-to-ear grin -- to play the New York Knicks fan who is the star of this Cinderella story.

It's a dull, stale affair with suspenseless game sequences, humorless jokes, and pathetic drama.

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.

As long as the hoopsters mix it up with the Whoopster, it's fun. A second-string story keeps interrupting, though.

There's no doubt she's funny, but she could be so much more.

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.
