1.0 out of 5 stars A Don't See! Nov. 2 2002
Minus the music, this is "School House Rock" for urban youth in the new millenium. Today's lesson, I mean the film's lesson, is about the court process. As if students from low-income schools don't have debate teams. The characters have a mock trial on a basketball court while their cousin lies in a bathroom shot: quite realistic. I love the way the film shows black actors of both genders and all ages. It was cool to see Mack from "Night Court" and "Set It Off" again. One character uses the phrases "chicken-lickin'" to dismiss some others and that phrase had me laughing for healthy minutes. Still, the back cover of this movie cassette sounded far more interesting than the film actually was. And talk about unrealistic: a man gets shot but he has the strength to defend himself in a mock court without bleeding to death or going into shock. This movie is dressed up as a "New Jack" film, but really it's a cheesy morality play. I wonder if the ABA is using this to encourage urban youth to go to law school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Off The Hizzle Fo Shizzle May 23 2004
By Bob
The Playaz Court is a movie dat is off the hook, for real. It shows u what life is really like in da hood, even how violent it can get just cuz of a bball game. The storyline to this movie is unforgettable and the ending is off the chain. See, there are a bunch of black guys that decide to go play some ball at the local gym. On their way there, they come across these two gangstas who they no, and they eventually come to play to. One of the two hoods, played by Sticky Fingaz, gets killed in the bathroom at the beginning and so the white guy they were playing bball with of course is the first to be accused of the murder cuz they had been arguing with each other the whole time. After that, they basically just sit in the gym and have a "court" debating whether or not they should pop the white boy and if hes guilty. The ending is kinda confusing, but if u mostly understand it, its the roc. Go out and rent it and find out for urself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Drama Jan. 20 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Whether or not this book is a good buy, try to see this movie. Talk about justice!! This brother who is a local thug and not very likeable, is killed at the Community Center where he just played some hoops. His partner thinks it was the white dude that was playing ball there, but as the story unfolds, we find that perhaps there is a serious coverup going on here. Anyhow,when the dead thug's partner cornered the white guy trying to get out of dodge after the killing, they bring him in the center to the others still there and thanks to the intervention of the guy's brother(who is a lawyer),they start a mock court proceedings basically to buy time from ol' boy taking a shot at the white dude. What happens in the end is anticlimatic, and doesn't solve nothing,but still a great movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Playaz Court is a really great buy. Dec 26 2002
I recently saw a post on [web address] about this movie by a fellow member on the board (I am a writer as well). And I wanted to show my support and went out and bought a copy. This movie is really good. I didn't get bored like I do in a lot of films that aren't big time productions. I loved the movie, the plot, the dialogue was excellent. I would recommend this to anyone. This is how you make a movie. You don't need all the flash and cash. Great actors, great director, but above all, a great script is all you need. Wonderful movie. Looking forward to seeing more!

I enjoyed this movie very much. The story was very interesting and kept you involved until the end. All of the actors in this movie did an excellent job. Their characters were beleivable and interesting. You are able to understand their backgrounds very quickly. A well told story. I highly recommend this movie. I'm very happy to have this dvd in my collection.
