Urban drama about lifelong Detroit friends Cruise and Tech -- a college-bound basketball prodigy (Wesley Jonathan) with med-school ambitions and a high-school dropout (Anthony Mackie) with dreams of his own -- who enter an underground "streetball" tournament run by a smooth-talking promoter (Wayne Brady) to dethrone the league's cocky star player (Phillip Champion), jeopardizing Cruise's promising future. Written and directed by Preston A. Whitmore II, the film is commendable in its endorsement of education and integrity over money and fame, but, some energetic hoop sequences aside, the effort is weighed down by a trite, tired and predictable script. Some sexual content, including a subplot involving an out-of-wedlock pregnancy, lewd dance and cheerleading moves, suggestive wardrobe, sporadic crude language and humor and an instance of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
