Synopsis


White Men Can't Jump
Ron Shelton (Bull Durham) wrote and directed the basketball-oriented seriocomedy White Men Can't Jump. Woody Harrelson plays Billy Hoyle, a white con artist who hustles basketball games against black players who don't realize Billy is actually a gifted hoopster. One of his unsuspecting victims, Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes), becomes Billy's "agent," arranging his various scams around L.A., and the duo quickly start piling up the wins together. The film breezes through several zany sequences, including one liberal-baiting satirical moment set at a black/white "solidarity" basketball game arranged by an ambitious politician. Crooked gamblers intrude upon the last scenes of the film, but Hoyle is rescued by his girlfriend, Gloria (Rosie Perez), a Jeopardy freak who realizes a lifelong dream by winning big on the Alex Trebek-hosted game show. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    After Sidney (Wesley Snipes) and his family are burgled, he goes to Billy (Woody Harrelson) asking him to participate in another cash-earning basketball game against two legends of the Los Angeles basketball scene, Eddie "The King" Faroo & Duck Johnson (Louis Price & Freeman Williams). Billy runs this by Gloria (Rosie Perez), who had just gotten back together with him and gave him some of her Jeopardy! winnings to buy some new clothes and look for a job, and tells him that if he uses his winnings to enter this match, she will leave him. Billy, though he loves her, sides with Sidney to repay his debt to him. The duo enters the game against Faroo & Johnson, and after a tough game Sidney and Billy emerge victorious, Billy securing the win by making a slam dunk.

    Captures both Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes at the height of their comedic acting skills (along with Rosie Perez) in a story that is about friendship triumphing over race. Very pertinent to these times! Of course the BD brings more clarity to the screen, particularly if you have a large screen TV and good sound system.

    The movie has some classic lines in it along with some good tricky basketball footage, but overall the movie is dated and just mildly amusing. I watched it after purchasing as I hadn't seen it in many years but was sorry I did buy it as its not a movie I can watch over and over again. Would rather have purchased a different title.

    Any movie that has to do with basketball, I will watch it and surely, I enjoyed this. Nice to see Woody and Wesley in their younger years and they make a good pair of hustlers, a good chemistry in the big screen. Wish they both agree to do another movie, kinda like how Dumb and Dumber To did very recently.

    Good older movie. I paid $4.99 for it. Couldn't beat the price and quality was what I've come to expect from blu ray. Mine did not include UV copy and I was not able to D2D it so that is something to take into concern if your like me and enjoy have cloud access.

    White Men Can't Jump is a classic! The chemistry between Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson as basketball hustlers is pure gold! This movie is funny and the dialogue is as quotable today as it was 25 years ago! This is a must have! Highly recommended!

    White Men Can't Jump is a classic movie that takes you all the way back to the 90's! Woody and Wesley are an incredible team together, both on the screen and on the court, and the dialogue keeps your attention for the whole length of the film. Worth a buy!

    This movie is the best. Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, and Rosie Perez. Classic performances and funny lines. The story is an original and well told. I saw this in theaters and had to grab it on blu ray when I came across it in the bargain bin.
