Synopsis

Does the title of this film sound like lazy prejudice? Billy (who is white) and Sidney (who is black) are basketball hustlers who exploit the fact that most people in inner-city Los Angeles assume that a hick Caucasian will be hopeless at the game. But this sharp and funny film isn't just about how to con people at sports, it is about how people end up in a position where the risky art of tricking people is their main source of cash.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
