Movie Info

NBA superstar Kevin Durant plays himself in this action- packed family film about a basketball star who switches talent with a klutzy 16-year-old fan. When Brian (Taylor Gray) magically switches basketball skills with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team... while Kevin Durant suddenly can't make a shot to save his life. But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner means working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero's season. -- (C) Official Site

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (8)

  • Sells itself on durable messages about strong work ethic, the importance of community relations and playing to one's individual potential.

    August 24, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a family-friendly movie with a warmhearted message for children that -- surprisingly -- isn't too cheesy for their parents to enjoy as well.

    December 21, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Talent-swapping basketball tale is bland but OK for kids.

    September 5, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Headlining a less-than-mediocre kids' movie taints one's brand rather than enhancing it. Just ask Shaq.

    August 31, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • It might be more effective with a hint of subtlety and a premise that isn't so flimsy and formulaic.

    August 29, 2012 | Full Review…
  • The film has a great, if not commonplace, message: Work hard to get ahead. Don't take any shortcuts. Nothing wrong with kids wasting 90 minutes if they come away with that theme.

    NBA superstar Kevin Durant has got game. His biggest fan has none. Things are about to switch! Good movie! One great message in this film is that talent isn't something you get; talent is something that you earn with hard work and dedication. It was predictable in its format and that last 10 minutes were basically a carbon copy of most other movies of this type, so don't be shocked. It isn't an Oscar contender, but compared to other movies starring athletes, this was a good one. A fun and energetic family basketball movie starring Kevin Durant AS HIMSELF, a basketball star who switches talent with a klutzy 16 year old fan. When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team...while Kevin Durant suddenly can't make a shot to save his life. But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner involves working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero's season.
