Critic Reviews of "White Men Cant Jump"Chicago TribuneApril 02, 2014
A fresh and exuberant romantic comedy that is as smart about playground basketball as Bull Durham was about minor league baseball.Los Angeles TimesApril 02, 2014
They're black and white instead of fat and thin, but Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson have the makings of a classic comedy team, the Laurel and Hardy of the half-court game.New YorkerApril 02, 2014
Harrelson's performance is rich, subtle, and delicately funny. And Snipes is just amazing: everything he does seems to leap off the screen.Orlando SentinelApril 02, 2014
White Man Can't Jump is most effective at the beginning -- when it's bouncing along with the exuberance that Shelton brought to such other sports-minded movies as Bull Durham and The Best of Times.Philadelphia InquirerApril 02, 2014
Despite charismatic performances by Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes as nothing-but- net shooters who might be called the Schmo and the Bro, White Men Can't Jump throws up mostly bricks.Chicago TribuneApril 02, 2014
It's a funny, frequently rousing film, with a warmly appealing acting partnership at its center-between basketball hustlers Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson.South Florida Sun-SentinelApril 02, 2014
[Shelton] contributes a uniquely eccentric point of view that is simultaneously obsessed with and ambivalent about sports, athletes and competition.Christian Science MonitorApril 02, 2014
Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson give lively performances as the heroes, who relate better to basketballs than to women or the business world. The movie doesn't add up to very much, though.Total FilmApril 02, 2014
Ron Shelton's film about two basketball hustlers hasn't aged well.Baltimore SunApril 02, 2014
[White Men Can't Jump is] like a game of pick-up basketball: it's intense, raggedy and explosive, now and then yielding moments of sheer gravity-defying grace, yet just as capable of producing air balls and pratfalls.Radio TimesApril 02, 2014
Writer/director Ron Shelton is that rare beast: someone who can make movies with wit, warmth and perception about American sports.Philadelphia Daily NewsApril 02, 2014
The verbal interplay between the characters appears to be intentionally improvised, but the scenes come off as cumbersome and off-kilter.
