Hustle (2023)

As far as sports movies go, this one plays the hits. Never back down. Training montage. Viral moment. Family. And on and on.

At times, it maybe tips a bit too far in the direction of unadulterated NBA propaganda, but hey, I like the sport so why not over-indulge a little. There’s not a ton that stands out, but it hits all the right moments at all the right times, and for a movie like this, that’s enough.
