No matter how clever the script or editing, there was no hiding the giant hole in the middle of this otherwise-excellent basketball flick: Wesley Snipes is a terrible basketball player! With an awkward, galloping dribble, a graceless jumper and—with no CGI around to help—no hops, it sometimes seems that Snipes is trying to hustle us. Woody Harrelson, on the other hand, appears to have a sweet jump shot.
But never mind reality, White Men is a well-written, funny take on the gritty, city game. And Rosie Perez is especially fun as Harrelson's street-smart girlfriend.
