A great relationship film, I give it a 10 (by maccaveili)
First off, let me say that I am a huge fan of almost every sport known to mankind. Now perhaps because of this, you'd think I'd enjoy movies easier whose central theme revolves around a sport. Contrary to that notion though, I am often a hard rater of sports movies because I expect so much from them.I really enjoyed this movie though. I thought the acting by both Lathan and Epps was outstanding. I found it to be extremely realistic, with the exception of seeing Epps in a Laker uniform, but other than that, it was real. At one point during the film, I really started to wonder if this <more>
film was based on a true story or something, how cool would that have been. Nonetheless, the fictional story is captivating.Yes I am a guy and I love sports, but I do like watching the occassional love story. I liked Pearl Harbor and Titantic which revolved around love stories, and I liked this love story too. There is more to it though, than just two people who fall for each other who happen to play basketball. There is the relationship not only between Quincy and Monica, but the relationships they had with their father and mother respectively. There is also the relationship they have with the world they live in, trying to find out what they really want in life. It really makes you think about how sometimes the very thing you are looking for is actually standing right there in front of you and you don't realize it.In the end, I loved Love and Basketball, and I give it a 10.
i love this movie.. actually i watching it now.. I love how it puts love into one of my favorite sports.. its so much fun to watch and you never get sick of watching it. It shows how Monica and Q have grown through the "quarters"in the movie.. This movie reminds me a lot of my first love, when we broke up I still loved him just as Monica did with Q.. My favorite part of this movie is when everything is going great with them and they are in college and their life just seems perfect. My least favorite part is when they are going through their crossroads because i hate to see people <more>
that are so in love break up. this is my favorite movie and i would recommend it to anyone!!!
I have seen this movie over a thousand times. It gets better every time a see it. I tell everyone I know that this movie is my autobiography. I play basketball and go after what I believe in. I recommend thi (by mj4eva23n32)
This is the best movie I've ever seen. I give much props to the Gina, the director/writer. The first time I saw this movie I knew that it would be a big hit. Like I said before, this movie is and will always be a big hit. I love this movie so much, that I have two copies of the CD. I listen to one and keep the other one on my night stand. Thank you Gina for creating another wonderful movie that we can enjoy.
"Love and Basketball" is one of the most feminist and non-stereotypical teen-through-20something movies I've ever seen. It's in effect a tribute to Title IX and the WBNA, casually showing a girl with basketball dreams, and how it affects her personal life and those around her. Highly recommended for teens! As good as Omar Epps was though, I thought he was a bit short to be believable as an NBA prospect.Except for one talky section of the movie towards the end where everyone pretty much says the obvious about their relationships, the rest of the character development is done <more>
visually and through situations and not one sports movie or African-American cliché. It is a date movie because both leads change. Stay through the credits to see a sweet shot at the end.I was girding for a hip hop soundtrack, but it's old school R & B all the way and lovely to listen to complete with a wonderful line that the audience really appreciated: "Mom, why are you drinking? I haven't seen you drink so much since Marvin Gaye died." originally written 5/6/2000
Hey whats up my name is Christine, i had made a bet with a friend for 50$ bout the movie love and basketball on the part right after the prom. where Monica gave Quincy her college acceptance letter to read, then he went to hug her but she twisted her neck and kissed him now who made the first move? didn't she kiss him first? you can also tell by listening to the conversation after the kiss. if you can please email me back and tell me if you agree or not thank you if you don't thats OK you can still email me too i just want to see who gets the most votes! hopefully i do so if your on <more>
my side you know that girls make the first moves! not always but most of the time though. it just makes me so mad when boys think that they always be making the first move! i know that my man like me to make the first moves sometimes! i wanted the director to email me so i can print it out and show it to my friend named Vincent his hard headed self! he might believe me more if i can actually prove it to him! then as soon as i show it to him I'm going to say where my 50$ at? even though he did try to lower the bet but i said no because i know I'm right and he is wrong! thats probably why he wanted to lower the bet because he know he about to loose all his little bit of money
This movie was so great, and geez Sanaa is so hot in all of her scenes. An outstanding flick for keeping a good pace, while being romantic and very interesting. Excellent story line, with some good turns that I wasn't entirely expecting. Good sound track - favorite part of the movie was the dance when "I wanna be your man" comes on. That part was pure money. Only disappointment... why was Tyra cast again with Omar? Didn't we already do them in Higher Learning? Come to think of it, that was USC based as well. Well that doesn't matter much anyways. If you want a good date <more>
movie if your date doesn't hate bball , this is it - 9/10.
Really fine film, but PG-13? No, should be considered "R". (by TxMike)
The title of the film comes from a comment near the end, when Monica's Sanaa Lathan boyfriend, "Q", says, "All is fair in love and basketball", a take-off of the old saying "all's fair in love and war." In a sense, basketball is war, as we clearly see in the interviews on the DVD "extras" with several real-life female basketball players. This is Monica's story. As a little girl she gets attracted to basketball and, as the film opens, she at 11 is dressed like a boy, hair pulled up under the cap, so she can get into the local pick-up game. <more>
It follows her through high school, then college at USC, then as a pro in Europe. The boy next door becomes almost like a brother, he climbs into her bedroom window and sleeps on the floor when his parents are arguing. But it is a constant love/hate relationship between the two basketball stars who both end up playing varsity at USC.SPOILERS follow - Monica gets tired of pro basketball and comes home, mainly because she was lonely and unfulfilled. She never forgot "Q" and found out he was engaged to be married. Two weeks before the wedding she tells him she loves him, wants him to call off the wedding. They play a one-on-one at night to settle it. Fade out, then in to last scene, Monica is playing prefessional basketball again, "Q" is watching her, with their child on her lap.A few words of summary cannot do the film justice. It is very well written and directed, but Sanaa Lathan is just great. She is in almost every scene, and she carries the film, makes it believable. But the language, nudity, and adult situations causes me to wonder how it gets a PG-13 rating. It definitely should be "R".
A great feel good movie.The combination of great basketball action and a great love story worked very well.The acting was top notch.Sanaa was great as was Omar as usual. Would like to see Sanaa doing much more stuff.Great support also from Alfre and Denis.
great debut for director and actor Sanaa Lathan (by edengarden)
I didn't get to see this movie in the theater because I have a young child, so I finally checked it out on video. I was really touched by it and thought the acting throughout and this is also praise of the director was fantastic. It's so deep to see fully realized African American characters on screen -- strong and vulnerable and funny and intelligent. The world is richer for this movie.
