NBA superstar Kevin Durant has got game. His biggest fan has none. Things are about to switch! Good movie! One great message in this film is that talent isn't something you get; talent is something that you earn with hard work and dedication. It was predictable in its format and that last 10 minutes were basically a carbon copy of most other movies of this type, so don't be shocked. It isn't an Oscar contender, but compared to other movies starring athletes, this was a good one. A fun and energetic family basketball movie starring Kevin Durant AS HIMSELF, a basketball star who switches talent with a klutzy 16 year old fan. When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team...while Kevin Durant suddenly can't make a shot to save his life. But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner involves working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero's season.

Really good sports movie. My 10 year old is a big basketball fan and he watched it 3 times in 2 days when I rented it. Now that I bought it and have on flixster he can watch it whenever he wants. Kevin Durant did a really good job in acting. Not every athlete does that well when they dabble on the big screen.
