It's Hollywood's first good film built around a woman basketball player.

Love and Basketball never really reconciles the two elements of its title and ultimately basketball is forced to take a backseat to love.
January 1, 2000
Uneven, a bit stilted, but with a solid cast.
January 1, 2000
Love and basketball -- if you like either one, here is a movie for you.
January 1, 2000
The plot is convoluted and overlong, but the actors make it fresh and involving.

But this is a romance movie and the main questions are: 'Did you believe in the love?' and 'Did it make you feel good?' Answers to both: Yes.

The movie is not as taut as it could have been, but I prefer its emotional perception to the pumped-up sports cliches I was sort of expecting.
January 1, 2000
Although not a slam-dunk, it's a satisfying lay-up.

Like a really satisfying game, the score at the end of each is no indication of who will win at the final buzzer.

It too often dribbles instead of scoring, wasting time with talking-head confrontations when the real action should be in the bedroom and on the court.
January 1, 2000
A startling debut full of emotional depth and political punch.
January 1, 2000
The most passionate, clear-sighted movie ever made about women in sports.
January 1, 2000
It's in the small touches that this movie comes alive, and it's rare that directors can pull off this kind of thing.
