Review from the comment
I would never have watched this but my little niece was over and she is a fan of it. We put it on while eating and then doing some things around the house. Its a cute enough idea: orphan boy gets some magic sneakers that allow him to play hoop at a star level. But even if you are able to get past that ridiculousness, the rest of the film plays out in an absurdly predictable fashion. There aren't many genuinely funny moments, and the whole thing just feels like a ripoff of 80's feel good cornball flicks. Big thumbs down.
