In this seasonal animated offering, Davey (voiced by Adam Sandler) ends up in court for some drunken behaviour. The judge is about to imprison Davey when Whitey, a local basketball referee (also voiced by Sandler), convinces him to let the young man work for him and help out the team as his community service. Whitey soon discovers the root of Davey's antisocial behaviour and when he's cheated out of an award it's Davey who comes to his rescue. The title refers to the eight-day Jewish holiday of Hanukkah which occurs around the end of the year.
Sharp, funny film about basketball hustlers who make money exploiting the inner-city LA assumption a hick white man will be hopeless at basketball.
