Originally created as part of ESPN's 30 For 30 documentary series, The Fab Five looks back on the University of Michigan men's basketball team that became one of the most popular and galvanizing squads of their time. Freshmen Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King, and Ray Jackson came to campus in the fall of 1991 and were widely considered one of the best recruiting classes the school had ever seen, and the anticipation led to them being dubbed "The Fab Five." The filmmakers sit down for interviews with not only the players themselves (except Webber who refused to participate), but also with many of their opponents, including members of Duke.~Perry Seibert
This was a great documentary about the fab five. The film itself does a great job of going beyond the scope of just sports. Audio and video quality is pretty solid. A lot of the footage is old, so buyer should keep that in mind. Overall a solid disc at a really good price.
One of ESPN's best documentaries, it told some of the experiences of the Fab Five of Michigan including stories from the players themselves, with the exception of Chris Webber. But all in all it was really good! A must for TRUE Michigan fans!
Honest, in-depth, hard hitting and a true story. This documentary has it all, complete with interviews, highlights and former players real life accounts. Heading into March Madness, this is a must own!
