One of the most rousingly enjoyable sports movies ever made, this small-town drama tells the story of the Hickory Huskers, an underdog basketball team from a tiny Indiana high school that makes it all the way to the state championship tournament. It's a familiar story, but sensitive direction and a splendid screenplay helped make this one of the best films of 1986, highlighted by the superb performances of Gene Hackman as the Huskers' coach, and Oscar nominee Dennis Hopper as the alcoholic father of one of the team's key players.
A boy and a dog with an amazing basketball playing ability are friends.
Basketball superstar Michael Jordan and cartoon favorite Bugs Bunny team up with other basketball greats and Looney Tunes characters in this combination animated/live-action feature.
The Pistol - Birth of a Legend
The Pistol is the action-packed, heartwarming motion picture about the dedication of a parent to his child and the devotion of a boy to become the greatest basketball player ever. Filmmakers Darrel Campbell and Rodney Stone go to great lengths to bring Pistol Pete fans this re-mastered sports classic, sure to be a great addition to any family movie collection. The Pistol is the uplifting story of a scrawny eighth grade boy whose stunning basketball skills earn him a spot on the high school team! Unfortunately for young Pete Maravich (Adam Guier), his style of "Showtime" basketball is way ahead of its time, making him the target of ridicule and socially separates him from his teammates. Against all odds, Pete perseveres with the constant encouragement of his mentor and father, Press Maravich (Days Of Our Lives' Nick Benedict) and the love of his mother Helen (Academy Award Nominee Millie Perkins). But Pistol Pete's life was about more than basketball.
