  • Here's a truly novel sports film: It actually has a script, decent acting, sympathetic characters. And it's fun. show more

  • This isn't the worst movie Warner Bros. has brought out this summer (Scooby-Doo, boo on you), but for it to work, you have to accept the irredeemable stupidity of almost every character. Time better spent: a Shaquille O'Neal film festival on video. show more

  • Predictable to its very core, and in a funny way the predictability is part of the fun. The movie is in on the joke of its own recycling. show more
