Sunset Park (1996)

  • Rhea Perlman
  • Carol Kane
  • Terrence DaShon Howard
  • Camille Saviola
  • Fredro Starr

  • Shawn Michael Howard
  • De'Aundre Bonds
Brooklyn phys ed teacher Phyllis Saroka (Perlman) becomes the coach of a high school basketball team that, despite her total lack of knowledge about the game, makes it to the city championships. The cast's excellent performances hold interest, even though the predictable storyline gives away all of its moves before it gets near the hoop. Starr (of the rap group Onyx) is outstanding as the most talented (and most troubled) member of the team.
