Brief Synopsis

Star basketball player Lewis Scott is single-handedly leading Utah Jazz to a comeback bid for the NBA championship, much to the dismay of the Boston Celtics fans--and particularly Mike O'Hara and Jimmy Flaherty. When Game 6 ends with a Boston Celtics defeat and a series tie, Jimmy and Mike are outraged to hear that Scott is celebrating his victory at a local nightclub. Daring to look the enemy in the eye, they seek out Scott and soon devise a plan to get him so drunk, he won't be able to play well, thus securing the title for the home team. The unsuspecting Scott falls for the plan and finally passes out. Mike and Jimmy wake the next morning in Jimmy's apartment only to find that Scott is there as well, with his hands and feet bound in tape! Discovering they've kidnapped him, the duo suddenly realize they have a rare opportunity to actually control the outcome of the series if they keep Scott from playing. What they don't count on is that Scott is as keen a competitor off the court as he is on.

    Good cast, not a good movie. The humor is really stupid and off the walls dumb. Very rarely even funny, it is just too extreme to even come close to... MORE>
