Love & Basketball
Cast: Omar Epps, Sanaa Lathan, Dennis Haysbert, Alfre Woodard
Monica and Quincy meet at 11, the boy and tomboy next door. The winning film scores courtside, in both the sports and romance departments, and begs the question, "Can two athletes go one-on-one?"
What Parents Like: The plot gives a realistic picture of what it means to be a high school and college athlete, and highlights Title IX concerns between the sexes.
Pucker Up: Competitiveness fuels the fire between these two. "I'll play you," says Monica, "for your heart."
