5.0 out of 5 stars Roll On Floor Funny 19 Mar 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've seen this film several times over the years, and Finally got round to buying it. It has a great cast a very clever and well-scripted story.
For some reason this film has been over looked by the U.K but I think it's something all Men and Women can relate too. Those of us who let sports take over our lives, and the poor people who come second :-)
You will honestly love this film; it shows you something everyone can relate too. It's an extremely funny film that can be watched with a partner or a bunch of mates with a few beers

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny, Enjoyable Basketball Flick 5 April 2004
By Scott FS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Hmmm. I don't understand the negative reviews of this film. I thought it was funny and good entertainment. I give it three and one-half stars, especially if one loves sports.
The Utah Jazz meet the Boston Celtics in the final two games of a fictitious NBA championship series. Two Celtics fans who live and die with their beloved team are at the game, and get a bit more involved in the outcome of the series than most fans would, that's for sure. I laughed out loud a number of times watching this film, and that's how I judge a comedy.
I guess some of the reviewers who didn't like the film were disappointed that the film wasn't a documentary or something. Ya know, the basketball isn't real, guys! It's a movie, with actors and extras and probably semi-pro players doing the action scenes. (To be honest, the action was pretty good, in my opinion.)
The plot has been related a number of times below, so I'll just add a few observations.
Aykyrod (Jimmy Flahety) is as deadpan, goofy and funny as ever, on a par with his best. Stern (Mike O'Hara) is his equal in comedy. And Wayans (Lewis Scott) gets the superstar disdain for the fans just about perfect.
I really identified with the fan-tastical devotion to the Celtics since I'm a superstitious sports fan of the same ilk as Jimmy and Mike. They have great seats near the court, but switch seats depending upon when the game is played. If their team starts losing, they'll switch back to try to change the Celtic's luck. They'll ask their neighbors in the stands to do the same. Or even everybody in their section of seats. It's a mark of their devotion to the team. Oh, by the way, they have heckling down cold with some hilarious and dead-on insults so much so that they even rattle the Utah Jazz coach into almost rushing them in the stands.
Jimmy and Mike's efforts as 'sixth men' are, well, unconventional. And, as could be expected, the plan doesn't quite turn out they way they envisioned. It's light and funny throughout the film.
Recommended, especially for anyone who is more than a casual fan of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must own for any true Celtics fan 30 Mar 2013
By Cagneyfan67 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great movie for any hardcore Boston Celtics fan and New England Sports Fan in general. Stern, Wayans and Akyrod are great here. I thought they played their parts well. Stern as the hardcore fan who never made it to the NBA and lives vicariously through the Celtics. Akryod is more your traditional fan who grew up on the Celtics and represents loyalty. Wayans being the self involved ego maniac steals the show. I liked Wayans on In Living Color his career kind of fizzled out but this is a forgotten great performance by him. Akryod has been less involved in acting pursuing other things in this life but I consider this one of his last great performances. He was real funny. Stern was hilarious and it's puzzling why he hasn't got more parts. I liked Gail O'Grady in this too playing Stern's supportive wife. All the characters are likable which makes for a good movie. I recommend this as a good family movie too. Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars A slam dunk comedy!!! I'd say the same goes for "Like Mike"! 21 Oct 2012
By Mr.Kiddcarl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As a die-hard fan of basketball, my favorite teams of all-time are the Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz (which are the "other" team in this comedy). I had watched this on Showtime months ago, and I thought it was hilarious with a capital "H!" Dan Aykroyd (Ray Stantz from Ghost Busters) and Daniel Stern (The Wonder Years, Home Alone) portray two die-hard fans of the Boston Celtics (it is also shown that they are in fact fans of all the "Boston/New England" teams: the New England Patriots, Boston Bruins, Boston Red Sox, and of course, the Boston Celtics) who kidnap the best player (Daymon Wayans) in the NBA from the opposing team, Utah Jazz. After watching this film by myself and laughing my "basketballs" off, I showed this to my best friends and my two younger siblings (one of my friends is a die-hard fan of the Boston Celtics, as she is from New England herself) and they suffered the same horrendous fate that I did: laughing out loud. We enjoyed every second of it, and we continue to watch it whenever it comes on. If you or someone you know is a die-hard fan of the Boston Celtics or Utah Jazz for that matter, check this film out! It's hilarious!
