White Men Can't Jump ★★★★

White Men Can’t Jump gets labeled a great sports movie, but this is a great movie, period. Basketball might be played — and the slow-motion scenes are beautifully shot — but it’s not even really about sports. It’s really about the struggle of supporting a family, the risks that often have to be taken, and how “sometimes when you win, you really lose. And sometimes when you lose, you really win."
