Things suddenly change when Brian gets the opportunity to meet his idol, and explains how he desires to play, 'just like him'. 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. The military jumps into action and captures Susan, secreting her away to a covert government compound. Written by Thunderstruck is yet another short guy's hoop dreams fairytale. He was as funny in this film as ever. .
I laughed audibly when he remarked that Shaq had been working with Kevin on his free throws. Kevin's agent notices Brian possesses his clients talent, and realizes what has happened. This movie is claimed to be low-budget, low-quality and predictable. 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. If you want to make a Space Jam or Like Mike type of movie it has to have magic, even though there was some inexplicable magic in this film it wasn't that game winning shot kind that leaves your exhilarated and satisfied with the final triumph.
The key roles are played by Kevin Durant, Taylor Gray, and Jim Belushi. In the process they discover that this very small animal has been a big hero in a lot of ways. Instead, he discovers that his vindictive arch enemy is back to taunt him and that a garrulous Malawian has taken residence in his dormitory, along with the regular inmates and misfits he calls friends. It is Directed by John Whitesell. But it's sad when you resort to ball on balls physical comedy for laughs.
It helped that Brandon T. The funniest scenes are when Alan Brandon T. As Kevin passes the ball to Brian, without knowing it is happening, Brian receives the talent of his idol, of being an amazing basketball star. The year is 1992 and, in South Africa, radical change is in the air. Will Brendan succeed in his quest? This movie followed suit to few others of similar content in the past, with a real Athlete in the movie, the others did very well, but not Thunderstruck. After this takes place, Kevin has a problem playing well anymore, but Brian, on the other hand, dominates the court. She is renamed Ginormica and placed in confinement with a ragtag group of Monsters….
Not only does Brian miss the shot, he also hits the game mascot. A little magic happens when Kevin offers to play a little one-on-one with Brian. After making this movie, Kevin Durant made a statement that he had a hard time with one particular part of this film. This is a fairly new film, it is filmed in the United States, in English. Jackson and James Belushi Coach Amross are good actors but they did not make enough of a difference to balance out the poor acting. The playoffs of the Oklahoma City Thunder, is at stake.
Brian and Kevin's agent make arrangements to try to save the team, by giving Kevin back his talent. I did realize though that you have to have some basketball talent to make it appear that you have no basketball talent. Initially I figured that this was a Space Jam like film for this generation of young hoopsters to see a current fan favorite in a life situation other than simply on the court or I thought it might be a Like Mike kind of film. Unfortunately, it didn't have the charisma or heart of either of those two films. Again, I am a Kevin Durant fan and consider him one of the most talented ballers in the game today, but he and Candace Parker Williams have some serious work to do if they want to build an acting resume.
Unfortunately, this movie did not receive very good reviews. When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team. During a game, Brian gets an opportunity to make a very important shot from half court, and misses. This has to be a horrifying experience for this young man. The toughest part of the movie for him was that he had to miss jump shots, on purpose, for the movie to appear to not be able to play anymore.
I give it a red light. If it were the beginning of summer and you wanted to get the kids out of the house then send them to this film for an hour and a half of peace, but since it isn't you are better off saving your dollars. When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team.
