Audience Reviews for Heaven Is a Playground

½

This weak basketball film feels like it was made by a production team that only half cared about the final product, and a cast that is pretty hit and miss...but mostly miss. It is inconsistent in tone and themes, and adds too many superfluous characters that add little to the proceedings. Might have had a shot, but it really never lands on it's feet...hell it barely takes off.
