"You did good, pop. You did real good."

80s melodrama ages like a fine…mayonnaise.

I liked it. Gene Hackman was awesome!

A wonderful sports movie set in rural Indiana, which is as much about its characters as it is about the sport. The cast is top notch all around, with several canditates for best lifetime performance. Especially Dennis Hopper steals every scene he's inn with his take on an alcholic misfit with a passion for basketball and love for his son. The editing and directing is excellent and the warm, rousing score by Jerry Goldsmith was rightfully nominated for an Academy Award.
