White Men Can't Jump (1992)


It's about basketball, romantic relationships, and money, and it's not ambitious about it. It's got some interesting performances here and there, the best of which take place in the court. But it also got some substandard ones, especially the lovers of the lead characters especially. The direction is a little weird, and it appears the actors a lot of freedom, and some scenes feel over-extended. Check especially an early one, where the two leads meet for the first time.
