    One of my favorite movies ever. Totally fantasy, but, too me - the funniest movie I've ever seen...

    This is a supernatural sports comedy. That is the best description for this. The film is about two brothers playing college basketball together. The brother named Antoine is the star player that dies. But he comes back to help his brother Kenny and the rest of the team win as a ghost. A silly story not to be taken seriously. The film stars Marlon Wayans and Kadeem Hardison. They both are solid and funny in this. The films does bring some laughs. But at times it is also very corny. If your watching television and this comes on and you have nothing else to do then maybe give this film a chance. Only worth a watch for those fans of the main two actors or if you just like sport films.
