Plot Outline:

Jimmy Dolan is a college basketball coach who wants a big promotion. To get it, he needs to make a dramatic find. He ends up deep in Africa, hoping to recruit Saleh, a huge basketball prodigy Jimmy glimpsed in a home movie. But Saleh is the chief's son and has responsibilities at home, since the tribe's land is threatened by a mining company with its own hotshot basketball team.

I was younger when I saw this movie and I can remember is that it was stupid and forgettable. I also hate sports movies or movies whose plot revolves around some sports game or competition. Of all sports, basketball and golf are my least favorite. Sports movies are also extremely predictable. I just cannot stand watching them.

I'm reminded of that scene in Airplane! when he's talking about his missionary work and all the poor African people he's helping when he introduces basketball and they suddenly start dunking and shooting ball like pros. This is just a silly film of little note that I'm sure Kevin Bacon is extremely proud of.
