5 points to anyone who can change my mind. 3 points for a good, albeit unsuccessful argument.

Michael J Fox plays a 5ft tall skinny white boy who is his basketball teams best hope. The air conditioning in the basketball court doesn't work, or what is more likely is Michael J Fox is on drugs. The sweating, his height, the abnormal body hair, obviously testosterone, and he is a hero? That is why, at the end, one of the crowd gets his'member' out. It is a direct insult to the lack of member Fox's character has after ingesting so many steroids to become a better player.

Tell Muggsy Bogues that 5 foot is too small to play basketball.

As far as the guy with his penis out, he clearly was so aroused by the championship game that he had to play with himself immediately. To me, that is the ultimate compliment one can pay.

Never thought of it like that... and we're now never going to a basketball game together

To me, the key to this crossfire is the exclusive word "basketball." While I don't think Teen Wolf is anything more than kitschy shlock worthy of a few catch phrases and a smile, the pool of quality basketball films is very small. Hoosiers and Hoop Dreams are widely regarded as the best of the genre, but I find both of them to be far more poignant to the heartland than the world as a whole. After that? Gee -- if you can't count films that simply include basketball scenes (like Airplane! and Pleasantville), well, I suppose I like Glory Road and I kinda liked Love & Basketball and He Got Game, but it might fairly be said that Teen Wolf is indeed the best comic basketball film (and therefore makes it the best basketball film if you're the kind of person who says comedy >>>>> drama).

Do you like basketball movies? I've been a big Micahel J. Fox fan ever since the release of his 1985 movie, Teen Wolf. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was in Teen Wolf where Michael J. Fox’s presence became more apparent. I think Basketball Diaries was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of DiCaprio, Bracco and Wahlberg. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Hoosiers. In this song, Gene Hackman addresses the problems of abusive political authority. Love & Basketball is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Wesley Snipes’ solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like Hoop Dreams and He Got Game. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Denzel Washington works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is White Men Can’t Jump, a great, great movie, a personal favorite.

She could have had ten if she had managed to fit in a Fish Who Saved Pittsburgh reference.

I've read somewhere that Aaron Paul was in serious contention for the young Han Solo in one of the upcoming star Wars prequel/sequel/reboot thingies

Can anyone convince me that any actor of their choice would be a good fit for a young Han Solo?

I'm gonna take a wild ass guess here, that you and I are likely the only ones who are even aware of that tranvestite hooker movie. Just a guess.
