- Customer Reviews:
Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson) and Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes) are an unlikely pair of basketball hustlers. They team up to con their way across the courts of Los Angeles, playing a game that's fast dangerous - and funny. Directed and written by Ron Shelton ("Bull Durham"), and co-starring the sizzling Rosie Perez, "White Men Can't Jump" is a slam dunk, high-flying comedy hit!

I find the film slows down whenever Rosie Perez is on - nothing against her, but it's a basketball film so that's where the action is.
2 other main sections which make the film worth watching are the one-on-one tournament and the back-lot single shot required to earn the missus a place on her show: "You get the Sudan! And a hook shot!" "Can I use my right arm?!" Excellent!
Ultimately, Harrelson's character is flawed and is hugely frustrating to watch when not playing basketball, and the slam-dunk episode makes you shout at the screen with annoyance, but the action on the court is great.
Delivery and quality excellent
The story is about hustling on the basketball court (ie the street courts). Where the hustler gets hustled back. It has some slow rascist undertones, but it's part of the game and the thing that makes the story.
All in all, this is a good movie, almost a feelgood movie.
