White Men Can't Jump

[15]

United States 1992, 115 mins
Director: Ron Shelton
Starring: Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, Rosie Perez

Following hot on the heels of sold-out showings of DO THE RIGHT THING and BEATS RHYMES AND LIFE: THE TRAVELS OF A TRIBE CALLED QUEST, film blog Permanent Plastic Helmet returns with a special 20th anniversary screening of Ron Shelton’s classic basketball comedy.

One of the funniest films of the 90’s - and one of the greatest sports movies full stop - WHITE MEN CAN’T JUMP features career-best performances from Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson as competing street b-ball hustlers pushing each other to the limit in the scorching L.A.. sun. With ace support from Rosie Perez, and bags of zinging dialogue, it’s a dazzling tale of hoops, race, relationships..

and foods that begin with the letter ‘Q’! The screening will be preceded by food and drink soundtracked by classic 90s hip-hop and soul in the bar, plus a raffle with some great prizes on offer.

Don’t miss! .
