Movie Summary

Preston A. Whitmore II
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 basketball scholarship to UCLA pre-med to become a doctor rather than give in to the lure of former sports agent Vaughn (Wayne Brady - TV's "The Wayne Brady Show"), 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.moreless


Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times

    A decent example of Sidekick Cinema: a movie to glance up at from time to time while you download ring tones or text-message your friends.

    Entertainment Weekly

    Crossover skimps on court-level pyrotechnics (we get a game in the beginning and, of course, a big game at the end, and that's about it) in favor of dry urban melodrama.

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Overshadowed by vastly superior sports movies like Invincible and hardly disguising its low-budget sources, pic isn't in any kind of shape for the theatrical leagues.
