Movie Description:
The National Basketball Association play-offs are taking place, and the Boston Celtics are facing the Utah Jazz in a crucial series. This is also the last year that any games will be played in the Boston Garden, which is going to be torn down after the end of the season. Mike and Jimmy, two die-hard sports fans who will risk anything for the Celtics to win, are really getting into the games. The Celtics would be a sure win if it weren't for Lewis Scott, the cocky, loud-mouth star of the Jazz. After Scott himself punishes the Celtics in a bad loss, Mike and Jimmy decide to take things into their own hands by kidnapping Scott and holding him until after the crucial game takes place.

    A hockey enthusiast since 12 years of age, Toronto-based Rajvinder Singh, even went to the extent of trimming his hair, discarding his Pagri/turban, did not complete his education, incurred the wrath of his father, Darvesh, who wanted him to be involved in the family business as well as confirm and respect Sikh religion principles and values. Hoping to play professional hockey, Rajvinder, along with other fellow Sikh players, instead finds himself treated as the object of ridicule, referred to as a 'joker', by mainstream Caucasian players. Even his friends tease him and ask him to take up 'Guli Danda' and Kabaddi', while his father makes him work for Uncle Sammy as a truck driver. He is attracted to stunning law student Melissa Winters while her brother, Dan, offers to coach Rajvinder and his team. Unable to get themselves included in any team, they form their own, and call it 'Speedy Singhs'. They then set about to make a name for themselves with a coach who is unable to pronounce their names, and assumes that they belong to the same family as all their last names are 'Singh'. The team, headed by Rajvinder, has an uphill task, challenging the reigning champions 'Hammerheads', while Rajvinder must counsel his school-going brother, Gurveer, who is being harassed for looking 'different', deal with family pressures - especially after Darvesh announces that his son has forsaken hockey once and for all. —rAjOo ([email protected])

JUST OKAY - (5 stars out of 10)

The stage curtains open ...

"Celtic Pride" may appeal to anyone who is passionate about their team. Just how far would you go to help your team win a championship? Well, for these two desperate fans, just about anything! Just like our two main characters, this comedy movie tries too hard to accomplish its goal, and with limited success.

The NBA Finals are in full swing with the Utah Jazz squaring off against the Boston Celtics - but when the Celtics lose Game 6 at home, forcing a deciding Game 7, fans Mike O'Hara (Daniel Stern) and Jimmy Flaherty (Dan Aykroyd), find themselves in a position where they can directly affect the outcome of the game when they decide to kidnap and hold hostage the Jazz's star player, Lewis Scott (Daman Wayans). However, when Scott manages to escape, the two botched kidnappers find themselves cheering on Scott and the Jazz - because if the Celtics win the Finals, they are off to prison.

With the NBA Playoffs happening right now, I decided to revisit this 1996 comedy film and found it to be rather plain and stale. I remember watching it once years ago and enjoying it - but now, over 20 years later, it just doesn't seem to have the same appeal and entertainment value as it did back then. Stern and Aykroyd seem to go all out and have fun with their roles, but Wayans (much like his character) really didn't seem to care and turned in a mail-in performance. The idea of the movie is better than the finished product here - it just doesn't resonate well.

This isn't a bad movie, and for the 90 minutes you invest into watching it, it's okay with some funny moments. But I wouldn't recommend it. Not even to the sports enthusiast, since the film is more about what is going on behind the scenes than the actual game itself. I've seen better, but I've seen worse.

A FUN & CRAZY COMEDY

I always enjoyed this movie from when i used to watch it on video & i still find it a good fun watch & the trio of comedy actors are great together!!! Dan Aykroyd is always fantastic he's a comedy genius & Daniel stern is always fun to watch when he's stressed out & flipping lol & daman wayans is also great at comedy just watch Mo' Money & he's great at action- The last Action Hero so yeah a great team in a crazy sports comedy

"I believe that without that nice looking car you have no chance of getting laid, and that's a real tragedy"

This movie is damn funny. I've seen it plenty of times and always laugh my ass off. Akroyd, one of the greatest comedians in film of the 80's and 90's is fantastic. Stern is good as he usually is. Wayns probably steals most of the scenes he's in and you ended up liking him when you don't want to. And on a final note as a sports fan, I hate the Boston Celtics. But I love this movie.
