This could have been better if the characters were likable, had a better screenplay and if the white boy who could shoot was featured more. Loved the performance of Nick Nolte, who is a natural screamer (much like Pacino in his films like Any Given Sunday, Dog Day Afternoon, The Insider, etc.). If this were a comedy maybe it could have been well received. Still, the basketball scenes are nostalgic and fun to watch.

This is a decent movie. And it's, by far and away, the Shaq Attack's best movie.

What I would call a safe sports movie. It's somewhat realistic, but not gritty. Using actual basketball players is a good idea - this is definitely Shaq's shining moment on the big screen. Nothing great, but a worth a look.

Decent Basketball movie

Nick Nolte stars as Pete Bell the coach of the Western Dolphins college basketball team. A former national champion he's just suffered his first losing season. Determined to change this he and his staff immediately go after top prospects Butch McRae (Anfernee 'Penny' Hardaway), Ricky Roe (Matt Nover), and Neon (Shaquille O'Neal), a powerhouse of a player who never had aspirations of going to college. However, getting them to sign proves to be a wary task because the only way to get all three is with money and expensive gifts, an illegal form of cheating in the collegiate ranks.
"Blue Chips" is the kind of sports movie where an interest in basketball is recommended to fully enjoy. It can be interesting to see the strategies employed in winning a game, but it's even more interesting to wat...
