I saw this movie with my Dad as a kid! LOVED IT! I brought the album AND I have the movie! Truly underrated ! I think I developed my love for basketball with that movie, so many basketball cameo! It was IS everything a good sports movie should be!
I was at the Civic Arena for one long, long night of filming.
My family and I were there the night the roof of the arena was to be opened. I had never seen it retracted and no one knew anyone who had. Could it open? Was it urban legend…we had to know.
Jonathan Winters did some standup for the crowd at one point to probably keep people from leaving. The crowd thinned out dramatically from early to late evening.
Had lots of fun that night chanting swish swish to the fish fish and mighty mighty pisces.
I’m in several crowd scenes and if there’s a widescreen release I’ll be in like four more.
mos def! i fucking LOVED this movie. i’ve been trying to find it for years, i see you have a link to the dvd on amazon. as soon as i can afford it, i will be getting it!
