The clock strikes midnight, money changes hands, the crowd is on their feet, and the court is alive with fast-paced razzle-dazzle basketball. These players don't play for a school or a pro team. They play for the street and it's underground...way underground. Tech (Anthony Mackie, Freedomland, She Hate Me) and Cruise (Wesley Jonathan, Roll Bounce) are two best friends with mad streetballing skills. They light up the court with electrifying moves and spectacular dunks. But off the court their goals couldn't be more different. Tech dreams of going to the NBA and winning a streetball game against his conceited archrival Jewelz (Phillip "Hot Sauce" Champion). Cruise, with the natural talent to be an NBA star, wants to use his college basketball scholarship to become a doctor rather than give in to the lure of former sports agent Vaughn (Wayne Brady), who wants him to go pro. Crossover is a story of friendship and getting crossed, where true warriors play be their own rules and have the wicked ball-handling skills, hops and street smarts to show off their true talent.

Basketball players come of age in lame drama.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the film includes frequent images of women in scant outfits. Sex scenes show kissing and bodies dressed in underwear embracing. The film features some rough basketball (bodies slamming into each other, falling). The scam in the movie involves betting on basketball, fixing games, and paying off players. A motorcycle crashes into a car, and the rider flies up into the air and ends up in the hospital (with scrapes on his face and a worried friend in the room).
