Nov Posted by Marya E. There will be some plot spoilers. The film tells the story of two best friends — Monica and Quincy — from when they first met as children and then over the next 25 or so years of their lives. Doolittle movies.

He asked her to him in a game of basketball, only to discover she is a girl. They play regardless, and just as it seems Monica is going to win — he pushes her. This causes her to cut her face. I just want to point out once again how much I love Sanaa Lathan. I wrote a lot about her a few weeks back when I wrote about Something New. But on the court, she gets to do what she loves and this passion sometimes causes her to lose her cool. This frame is right after she messes up a shot at a big game while an important scout is watching.

This scene is so important. We need more sex scenes directed by women, because they tend to be more tender and more realistic and less voyeuristic. These two are awkward and shy, but in love and intimate. This scene also shows losing your virginity as something that is most definitely not Hollywood perfect, even as the moment is special. Quincy, whose father is a professional basketball player, is a starting freshman and a minor college sports celebrity. Monica, on the other hand, barely made it on the team and needs to learn to check her arrogance. It really feels like someone being forced out of their childish ways and into adulthood.

This is another part that says a lot about society and its reaction to passionate, working women. Quincy wants someone to dote on him, someone who will help him escape his turbulent family life, not really a partner.

Monica wants to be his partner, but she also needs to focus on her career, her skills, her life. The last part of the film starts with Monica playing professional basketball in the early 90s in Europe. At this time, that was the only option for women.

Throughout the film, Monica said she would be the first woman in the NBA. After years of this — and super expensive phone bills — Monica decides to come home. This part is so heartbreaking.

I remember when the WNBA was formed and I had never given any thought to what women who wanted to be pro basketball players did before it was formed. So goes our nations huge focus on male sports and almost complete lack of interest in women athletes.

When Monica comes back from Europe, Quincy is recovering from an injury and she goes to see him in the hospital. Sometimes product placement is a good thing! Eventually, she and Monica have it out. This scene is so powerful. We hear about the compromises her mother had to make for her family. Which brings us to the last part of the film, where Monica gets Quincy to play one-on-one one last time with her — this time for his heart.

It could be really cheesy, but both actors are so good that it works, it really works. And — spoiler alert — she does! The film ends as the WNBA forms, and Monica gets it all — her dream job, her dream man and a little baby girl too! As far a Gina Prince-Bythewood is concerned, it seems she got the same kind of happy ending, so these kind of dreams can come true!
