ABC TUESDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES Classic
24 December 2000 | by SanDiegoSee all my reviews

Offbeat comedy shown on the late great ABC's TUESDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES (made for TV movies were born here). Two groups of professionals who play basketball each week to release stress from their urban livlihoods devise a new game: Each team will hide a basketball somewhere in the big city for the other team to find. The catch? It must be somewhere in full view of the public. Plus, the opposing must retrieve the basketball. This gets kind of tricky when one basketball is used in a modern art exhibit at a high security museum. Kind of an all male version of WHO'S MINDING THE MINT. Great cast, great pacing, great idea. I wish ABC would release more of this series of films on video (DUEL, SATAN'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS, and TRILOGY OF TERROR have been released so maybe more will). Great source for remakes. I would love to see Shirts/Skins made with a contemporary coed cast. It would have to be retitled of course.
