Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson) and Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes) are an unlikely pair of basketball hustlers. They team up to con their way across the courts of Los Angeles, playing a game that's fast dangerous - and funny. Directed and written by Ron Shelton ("Bull Durham"), and co-starring the sizzling Rosie Perez, "White Men Can't Jump" is a slam dunk, high-flying comedy hit!

Hustlin' hoops tale with too much skin for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that despite an appealing, diverse cast and a provocative title, there's not much redeeming social value in this movie. Characters lie, cheat, and steal. They gamble and they drink. There are several sex scenes in which Gloria is topless or nearly topless with references to oral sex. There are also quite a few scenes of threatened violence, though no one gets killed.
