They’re 11, and both want to play in the NBA, just like Quincy’s dad. Their love-hate relationship lasts into high school, with Monica’s edge and Quincy’s top-dog attitude separating them, except when Quincy’s parents argue and he climbs through Monica’s window to sleep on the floor. As high school ends, they come together as a couple, but within a year, with both of them playing ball at USC, Quincy’s relationship with his father takes an ugly turn, and it leads to a break up with Monica. Some years later, their pro careers at a crossroads, they meet again. It’s time for a final game of one-on-one with high stakes.
Plot: A young African-American couple navigates the tricky paths of romance and athletics in this drama. Quincy McCall and Monica Wright grew up in the same neighborhood and have known each other since childhood. As they grow into adulthood, they fall in love, but they also share another all-consuming passion: basketball. They’ve followed the game all their lives and have no small amount of talent on the court. As Quincy and Monica struggle to make their relationship work, they follow separate career paths though high school and college basketball and, they hope, into stardom in big-league professional ball.

Wow, a sports movie I liked!
I don’t like sports movies. I don’t like chick flicks. So imagine how happy I was when I rented this movie (it had been advertised as a sports movie in some ads and a chick flick in others) and found gold.
I won’t give away anything about this surprisingly underrated film as I didn’t know too much about it going in (as I’ve said many times before, that’s often the best way to watch a movie). I’ll just say that I’d be very happy to see more sports movies made in the mold of this one. Every cliche from the genera is tossed from the very beginning, and there isn’t even a Big Game at the finale. (Well, not exactly. There *is* a climactic game, but [and you’ll understand when you watch it] there is a LOT more at stake than the state championship or whatever.)
A little warning for the parents, as I’m a responsible gremlin. This movie’s rated PG-13, and for a while I thought it was just for language and that this movie would be perfectly fine for thoughtful preteens. Little change of pace from the “Mighty Ducks” tripe. Well, it turns out that about halfway through there is a very *HOT* scene, so it really should have been rated R.
Then again, if “Scary Movie” can sneak by with an R and not a triple-X these days… but I digress.
Love and Basketball
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 that are so in love break up. this is my favorite movie and i would recommend it to anyone!!!
